OUR SYSTEM FOR VERTICAL GREEN INSTALLATION
As well as green roofs, in the last few years the vertical green has become a constant architectural element in the projects of both new and renovated buildings.
Besides being a distinguishing element of green architecture, a vertical green system brings many advantages because it creates a kind of `second skin´ for the building:
- It improves its thermal isolation avoiding a direct solar irradiation on the walls, which do not warm up and do not radiate heat inside the building
- It improves its aesthetic impact in comparison with the surrounding buildings
- It contributes to capture fine particles (PM10) in the urban environment
The creation of a green wall starts, above all, from the choice of the type of system. In fact, there are two types of system available: the ‘traditional’ Climbing Vertical Green created several years ago and a younger system called Vertical Garden.
The first type utilizes the climbing plant capacity to catch hold of proper supporting structures in order to create what we can call a green curtain.
The second type allows to create a real Vertical Garden, putting on the wall plants that we normally find in our gardens and creating an out-and-out piece of art.
