GREEN WALLS

“A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing.”

– Sir William Dobell

MAIN COMPONENTS

TRAYS

TRAYS

The customized tray can fit into any design or wall type. Special solid medium: special growth material is non-ordering to ensure plant longevity, much lower maintenance than loose soil systems.
PLANTS

PLANTS

At GreenRoad, we offer you a large inventory of plants species to choose from. Our design team will prepare a composition according to your preferences, that  will naturally enhance the aesthetic of the site.
IRRIGATION/FERTILIZATION SYSTEM

IRRIGATION/FERTILIZATION SYSTEM

Outdoor or indoor our Green Walls are highly efficient and are designed to maintain substantial moisture and temperature for plants. Every panel contains drip emitters to ensure plants are evenly watered and prevents any dry spot on the wall.
MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

Maintenance plays an important role to keep your living Green Wall a long lasting piece of art. Maintenance is recommended for every living  Green Wall for the first year which includes irrigation, fertigation, water recirculation and drainage systems. Every wall will be visited regularly to make sure they are on stable condition and plants are changed if needed.

GREEN WALL BENEFITS

ENERGY EFFICIENCY
(SAVE ENERGY AND COOLING COSTS)
GREEN WALLS CAN BE USED AS AN EFFECTIVE
INSULATOR FOR YOUR BUILDING STRUCTURES
THAT CAN SAVE ENERGY CONSUMPTION.

CUT-DOWN AC BILLS
During the summer season the temperature inside the building rises up due to the direct exposure of the exterior walls to sun and this will result more energy to be consumed in order to keep the interior cold. The advantage of using the walls covered by plants would be a tremendous reduction in surface temperature of the building walls and keeping the interior much cooler and consuming less loads of energy. Green Walls can reduce temperature up to 10°C.


GREEN WALLS WITH LOWER HEAT COMPARING TO CONCRETE WALL

According to the studies conducted at Tokyo Institute of Technology by Professor Akira, it was proved that the heat energy which passed through Green Wall was much lower than the concrete wall preventing the Heat Island Effect and maintaining cooler buildings. The energy saving calculation of the Green Walls greatly depends on the direction where the wall is facing, the angle of the sun and other factors. But it was successfully concluded that the green wall panels avoid transfer of energy into the building structure approximately by 0.24kWh/m2 and keeping the walls 10°C cooler.

URBAN BEAUTIFICATION (GREENER CITIES)
All the building structures can be added to the beauty of nature by covering the cold, hard and old looking buildings with Green Walls which spreads beauty of nature all over the city. When buildings are covered by Green Walls, it will create harmony with nature.


BRAND PROMOTION

Green Walls can be used as highly effective marketing tools or “billboards” that will generate more foot track and buzz for your business and can be designed to reflect your company logo and branding materials. It also expresses your dedication towards green initiatives. These days many green features are added into the buildings which are not in direct contact with potential client but Green Walls visualize and relate your brand’s dedication towards greener ideas.

IMPROVING AIR QUALITY
Green Walls are effective tools to keep our cities pollution free by filtering the air. It also plays an important role in improving the indoor air quality. We spend approximately 90% of our time in an indoor environment which contains recirculated air filled with a mixture of toxic chemicals. Many people are prone to getting severe headache in this environment.

A Green Wall can act as a natural air Filtration system by serving as great absorber for dust and toxins which are scattered in the surrounding air. Green Wall releases more Oxygen & reduces CO2 through the process of photosynthesis which will give people more energy-rich oxygen. A 50 sq. ft. Green Wall Panel system removes approximately the same amount of CO2 as a 13 foot-high tree per year. Green Walls furnished with some species of plant will reduce and remove some toxins and traces of Nitrous Oxide and Sulfur Dioxide from the air.

HEALTH & WELLNESS
Green Wall can improve a person’s health and wellness.  Therapeutic Effect of Green Wall has been proven by comparing the lower injection level of pain relief drugs and quicker recovering process of the patients who have been exposed to the blooming greenery with those patients who had direct view of concrete walls.

 

Green Wall can cause reduced fatigue and stress by creating calm and relaxed environment by prevention of the noise and heat that can pass through the walls. Individuals can feel less physiological and psychological pressures by connecting to the natural beauty of the walls covered by greenery which can refresh our minds and provide better living environment. Increase Efficiency: Studies show that people have been more productive when they are around plants.

PROTECTION OF THE BUILDING
Building safeguard is one of the most substantial advantages of Green Walls.
Temperature fluctuation causes expansion and contraction of building materials which will affect the overall building structure. Green Wall decreases the temperature fluctuation which results in protection and the extension of lifespan of the building. Green Wall maintains building durability and increases service life by protecting the building from harsh environmental factors like ultra-violet, acid rain and also reduces cracking and carbonization of the building envelope.

TEMPERATURE REGULATION
Temperature of the building is reduced with the help of the Green Walls which results in consumption of less energy. The areas which are hotter than the surroundings are called as Heat Islands. The heat islands are created from the heat generated by air conditioners, asphalt, vehicles and population. Green Walls provide shading surfaces which help to absorb the heat.

 

It also cools the heat islands through evaporation process and reduces the need for air conditioning. Heat reaction from buildings and roads can be eliminated by using Green Walls. Green Walls create cooler space for people to walk, do their daily shopping, dining out and work. Wall temperature can be significantly reduced by 10°C with implementation of Green Walls. When the demand for usage of air conditioning is reduced, it inevitably lowers the gas emission and power consumption resulting to less greenhouse gas emission.

sound-insulation

SOUND INSULATION
As cities continually expand, there is an increasing issue of noise pollution which can be prevented by implementation of Green Wall. We are continuously confronted by noise and vibrations which we receive from surrounding environments like factories, cars, planes, people, etc. Green Wall acts as a noise shield and barrier which significantly reduces the noise and vibration up to 40dB and creates noise free environment inside our house and work place. It also helps to reduce sound reaction.

URBAN WILDLIFE
Green Wall can serve as a  natural environment where different species of wild life can live. Nowadays, one of the main threats to wildlife is the alarming rate of vanishing natural habitats which endanger the life of many species and ecosystem. Green Wall solution contributes great help to restore wildlife environment & habitants. Green Wall can be used as a medium to plant attractive species of plant that can attract many birds, bees and butterflies and can serve as a home for wildlife with perfect condition with water, food sources, protection, and places to bear & raise offspring.

PROPERTY VALUE
Green Wall eventually adds commercial value to your property. When you change the cold and classic appearance of your property with the quality landscaping and giving the building structure a much greener look, people are more prompted to rent, buy and live near your building and this cool place will add 15% to 20% to the value of your property.

LEED® Credits

Most people’s reaction when seeing a Green Wall is ‘wow this is a green building!’ but other than simply looking green it can be used to earn additional LEED® credits. LEED®, which stands for the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally recognized green building certification system. Categories cover issues of sustainability, energy savings, indoor air quality, health & wellness and acoustics, among others.

A Green Wall qualifies directly for two LEED® credits and helps gain an additional thirty points.
