Flexiverde Vydro

Vertical gardens

Flexiverde Vydro® is the Poliflor patent for the construction of high quality green walls and vertical gardens

Living plants walls, for exteriors and interiors, which require appropriate maintenance and at competitive prices.
Flexiverde Vydro allows the use of a wide floristic choice, is also suitable for extremely complex geometries and is entirely produced in Italy.

System components

1 – Structure

The structure that is fixed to the wall object of the intervention is based 100% on the components of the Hilti system, available in all the Hilti network stores, in Italy and in Europe.

2 – Rooting mat

The rooting mat, made up of a sandwich of high tenacity geosynthetics, is fixed to the structure and contains the driplines of the irrigation system.

3 – Irrigation

The integrated irrigation system allows remote control and monitoring via the control unit.

4 – Plants

Finally the plants, being able to choose from a wide range of flora depending on the exposure of the wall and the climatic conditions of the site.

Technical features

The Flexiverde® plants support element is consisting of non-woven-fabric made by polipropilene 150g/mq with a needled-punched made of coconut fibre, bidirectionally geocomposite Rock PEC 35/35 and technical substrate made of VYDRO polyurethane foam, kept together by a parallel discontinuous seam with a polyester thread. In the top part of the module a slot is formed in the Rock PEC tissue suitable to accommodate the fixing bar for the support of the system. Periodically, the parallel seam is interrupted to allow the insertion of transverse drip-line for irrigation of the module as well and of additional fixing bars for better adhesion to the structures. The non-woven with a needled-punched made of coconut fibre is suitably pre-cracked so as to create pockets, within which plants in pots of Ø8-9cm will be inserted.

Benefits

  • Usage flexibility
  • Usable for both internal and external creations
  • Lightweight supporting structure
  • Wide variety of available species

Installation sequence

Before proceeding to the execution and realization of the vertical garden, it should be noted some information necessary to the editing of a preliminary yard report.

  1. The obstacles of the wall object of the work, paying particular attention to the possible ones that must be taken into account during the planning (windows, doors, deformities, sloping variations, etc.)
  2. The materials used for the building of the wall object of the work (reinforced concrete, full bricks, pierced bricks, etc.)
  3. Possible presence of beams or other architectonic elements useful for the installation
  4. Soil conditions at the bottom of the wall object of the work
  5. Possible presence of electric ducts or water tubes, either internal or external to the wall object of the work
  6. Exposure to different environmental conditions (distance from the sea, wind, etc.)
  7. For external installations: orientation and exposure of the wall (shaded areas, sunny areas, etc.)
  8. For internal installations: possible presence of natural sources of light
  9. Possibility of in loco water and electrical connections
