Green Walls

Green walls, also known as living walls, vertical gardens or in some cases, green facades, are well designed collections of plants that have been intricately planned and arranged to create organic pieces of art. These beautiful features are able to thrive in both indoor and outdoor conditions and can serve a variety of spaces, big or small. Not only do these features visually enhance a space, they also bring many benefits for building occupants and visitors. The ideal environments for a green wall display are any meeting rooms, hallways, reception or breakout areas lacking in colour and texture.

Benefits of Green Walls

Improved air quality

Countless toxins are leeching from our indoor environment, such as formaldehyde, VOCs, trichloroethylene, carbon monoxide and benzene to name just a few. It’s long been known that adding office plants can improve the indoor air quality and interior green walls do just that, but on a much bigger scale that can benefit building inhabitants.

Noise level reduction

Living green wall structures can actually reduce the noise levels in buildings. Plants have been used, throughout the world, to reduce noise along roads and motorways. Green walls expand on this concept as the floiage naturally blocks high frequency sounds while the supporting structure can help to diminish low frequency sounds.

Energy cost reduction

Research has found that urban areas are considerably warmer than rural areas, especially during the summer months. The negative impact of this is the increase in energy demans leading to air pollutions and emissions. Living green walls help reverse this problem by providing shade from the effects of direct sunlight. Also, unlike brick or concrete, plant surfaces don’t store up solar energy, but reflect it. Both interior and exterior walls help to actively cool the air in summer by a process called evapotranspiration, reducing the need to cool the building.
