Green walls – also known as vertical gardens or living walls – are plants grown on the exterior or interior walls, which are attached with special materials and a built-in automatic irrigation system.
In addition to the breathtaking scenery, green walls have many other benefits that make them an obvious choice. Diversity is the key, and by utilizing hundreds of different types of plants and advanced hydroponic techniques we create striking patterns and unique designs. We achieve this by utilizing the multitude of colors, textures, and sizes that nature provides.
1- Visual Benefits of Green Walls
Green Walls make an Eye-catching aesthetic appearance by creating attractive and inviting environments. They are just as impressive in appearance as providers of good health; The plants in the walls act as a natural air purification system that the occupants of the building can enjoy. Staff are welcomed by a lush green environment while enjoying the calming effects of being around an abundance of foliage.
An emerging trend in green design, these vertically sprawling green gardens come to life all over the world on the outdoor areas of skyscrapers, in hotel lobbies, office reception areas and more.
2- Green Walls Improves your Air Quality
Green Walls are natural air-filters, creating a cleaner, more stimulation of the workplace area that will lead to better overall employee health and production. Officer workers are often exposed to air toxins in their work environment such as formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, Co2, and benzene. It metabolize harmful toxins while releasing oxygen into the air of the workplace, like office plants but on a much larger scale.
3- Energy Cost Reduction Benefits
The interior and exterior Green Walls function to cool the air in the warmer summer months by a process known as “evapotranspiration.” The winter months have the added advantage of insulating the building and thus reducing energy costs for heating the building.
Exterior living green walls can reduce wall surface temperatures by as much as 7 degrees °C, resulting in significant energy savings and air conditioning costs.
4- Noise Reduction Benefits of green walls
One of the lesser-known benefits of Green Walls, the structures can reduce noise levels in buildings. Plants have been used all over the world to reduce noise along roads and highways. It expand on this concept as vegetation “naturally” blocks high-frequency sounds while the supporting structure can help to diminish low-frequency noise.
Green Walls act as additional insulation with a layer of air between the plants and the wall. They also reduce noise levels by reflecting, refraction and absorption of sound energy.
A New Concept of Green Spaces…
We in Schaduf, created our first generation Green Wall system in 2011. We executed more than 100 projects and installed more than 7000 meters and planted more than 224000 plants in Egypt and the middle east.
If you are a business owner, you can now add a new concept of the work environment to your office to increase the productivity of your employees. Order the Green Wall now from the Experience House in the Middle East
