GREEN WALLS

The use of vegetation to cover buildings is rightfully becoming part of the repertoire of modern architecture.
Numerous contemporary buildings are strongly characterized by plant-covered walls: while such a choice
allows buildings in rural areas to harmoniously blend into the surrounding environment, it’s in the urban
context that vertical green expresses its full potential. In densely built-up areas, and particularly where
parks and gardens are scarce, vertical green greatly improves the overall quality of the environment, and
has a positive aesthetic value for residents.

Among Geoplast wide range of Green Solutions Wall-y is particularly suited in Green Wall construction:

  • Wall-Y, modular element for green walls;

WALL-Y® fits well into this philosophy: providing support for climbing plants, it’s the palette on which to creatively use nature and beautify buildings, finally producing better cities. It’s not just a matter of looks: the presence of vegetation is relaxing and has a positive effect on the health. Reintroducing
natural elements in areas heavily affected by human activities mitigates the environmental impact of
urbanization, fulfilling the desire of city dwellers for more nature around them. Creating a green wall with WALL-Y® means having a “green” vision of the world, putting respect for the environment as a top priority: the choice of those who aspire to aesthetic and functional benefits with future in their minds.

ROOF GARDEN and GREEN WALL BENEFITS

  1. Noise reduction, with a decrease of sound levels up to to 10 decibels.

  2. Reduction of the Urban "Heat Island" Effect, by providing a natural insulation to the building.

  3. Improved air quality, as photosynthesis allows trapping particulate matter and capturing gases.

  4. Savings, thanks to buildings' thermal insulation which helps the decrease of power demand.

  5. Reduction of storm water runoff, which is a major source of flooding and pollution worldwide. 

  6. Well-being, as buildings that feature and promote access to vegetation, have been documented as having a greater positive human health impact than those without.

  7. Increased Biodiversity while sustaining a variety of plants, pollinators, and invertebrates, and providing habitat and nesting places for various bird species.

  8. Development of urban agriculture, with the growing of small fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

  9. Aesthetic improvements and agreeable space demarcation.

  10. Roof life expansion, thanks to the roof’s waterproofing membrane protection from external influences, which may lead to serious damages
