In recent years, the vertical green creations have become more and more popular. They became a consistent architectural element when designing new buildings or when making renovations.
In addition to being a valuable element for any architectural composition, the implementation of a plant wall offers many advantages since it acts as a "second layer of protection":
It improves the thermal insulation of buildings and avoids direct sunlight, therefore the wall does not heat up to radiate its heat inside.
It improves the visual aspect of buildings by creating a balance between them and their surrounding environment.
It helps capture the fine particles released in the urban environment.
When thinking of making a green wall, one must first choose the type of system that
will allow him to achieve real Vertical Gardens. This type of system makes it possible to cultivate plants that are normally found in our gardens onto a wall, therefore creating real works of art.
THE TECHNICAL COMPOSITION OF A PLANT WALL
The system is composed of a mat to contain the inert elements. It is made of special geotextile layers that are sown to each other as to create compartments suitable for hosting the plants.
The characteristics of the geotextiles used, as well as the special sewing procedure adopted, protect the inert elements contained in the compartments that were created from moving due to gravity.The structure is composed of:
La struttura è composta da:
A mat to insert the plants.
Suitable plants and essences studied in function of the lighting and temperature of the environment.
A steel structure to support the vertical garden
A plate to protect the wall that is behind it wherever needed.
A water drip collection tank wherever needed.
Any side and top finishes.
An automated irrigation system.
A lighting system wherever needed.
