How Greenwalls Work
Living and breathing wallsOur walls are alive!, a living breathing ecosystem absorbing airborne pollutants and converting carbon dioxide into life giving oxygen. Our greenwalls can also help remove VOCS! Volatile Organic Compounds which are absorbed into the plant through the leaves.
Plants are notoriously adept at absorbing gases through pores on the surface of their leaves. It's this skill that facilitates photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert light energy and carbon dioxide into chemical energy to fuel growth.
An indoor plant's ability to remove harmful VOCS from the air is an example of phytoremediation, which is the use of any plant, indoors or out to mitigate pollution in air, soil or water.
Limitless possibilitiesThe lightweight powder coated aluminium frames we manufacture in house have limitless possibilities, from off the shelf 1.2mtr diamater round greenwalls, 2mtr H x 1.1mtr W and 2mtr H x 550mm W rectangle greenwalls suitable for interior and exterior installations. Our aluminium frames can be manufactured to any shape and size!
Our greenwalls can be installed on existing walls / structures and unlike other greenwalls available, all of the weight is transfered to the hard stand surface below the installed greenwall. Stainless steel location bolts are attached to the structure for location purposes only, not weight bearing.
Our freestanding walls can be used as temporary or permanent partions in offices, cafes, shopping centres, sales centres to name a few. The back of the greenwalls can fitted with whiteboards for offices, chalk boards for cafe signage and Signline panelling for advertisments / information purposes in shopping centres and sales offices.
Quality productOur greenwall frames are manufactured from aluminium, fully welded giving an enormous amount of strength, rigidity and versatility. The holding / catch tanks are seam welded from 3mm aluminium for corporate and commercial applications. For residental applications we have pre-engineered master and secondary holding tanks with inbuilt autofill, overflow, waste outlets.
Unlike most traditional greenwalls, we incorporate a light weight polymer back board. Our back boards are water proof, fire resistant, non expansive, will not rot, bloat, delaminate. Mould resistant and chemical resistant. The need for water proofing to mounting structures is reduced, all water / moisture is contained within the wall and directed to the holding / catch tanks ensuring the risk of water and moisture damage to structures is greatly reduced.
The option of leak detection with system shutoff and email / sms alert can also be used for greenwall installations in sensative area's. Our mounting rails are extruded aluminium, they will not rust, expand or contract giving stability and zero maintenance to the plant modules.
The greenwall modules, pre-engineered holding tanks and plant bags are made from at least 50% recycled materials reducing our carbon footprint.
