FLEXIVERDE VYDRO® is the new patent of Poliflor for the realization of high-quality green walls and vertical gardens.
Flexyverde Vydro® system
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.
Overall thickness system without plant essence: 7-10 cm depending on the structure used.
- Supporting structure for anchoring the vertical green system to the wall to be revived, made of hot steel binary of the MQ system of the HILTI company, whose merit is the exclusive use of standard components available all over the world in the HILTI stores
- FLEXIVERDE Vydro Mat: Maximum width 180cm x Maximum length 10m x Thickness 4cm.
- 40 plants/mq in pots of 8-9cm of diameter
- Irrigation system
- Perimeter plumbing
- Usage flexibility
- Usable for both internal and external creations
- Extraordinary adaptive capacity to project requirements
- Light supporting structure
- Wide variety of available species
- Ease of replacement in case of plants decay on the single element
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
