PLANTE LIVING FACADE
Plante- vertical garden system from Wallspan designed and engineered in Australia with micro irrigation offers architects and developers a cost-effective solution to turn monotonous walls into aesthetically-pleasing living green walls with the flexibility of choosing from an array of plants and mounting options to suit existing wall conditions. Plante pots are manufactured from UV-stabilised recycled polypropylene that meets requirements for international “Green Building” certification.
VersiWall® GP (VGP) is an easy-to-install and low-maintenance modular vertical greening system with a choice of mounting, planting density and growth media options to suit different wall conditions. The main component of the VGP system is the VGP Tray. It is simply hooked directly on VGP Mounting Panels or welded mesh, steel rods and steel wire ropes with up to 6 universal anchoring points.
An anti-lift arm prevents the VGP Tray from being inadvertently dislodged by inclement weather. There is no need for additional bolts or clips. Depending on plant sizes and planting density selected, VGP Trays allow plant spacings of 200mm and 250mm horizontally and 150mm and 225mm vertically. VGP Trays can be individually replaced or removed for wall maintenance. Each VGP Tray has a water reservoir with a cover designed for the provision of a capillary wick to re-use stored water and facilitate sustained plant growth. Where preferred, a drip irrigation and fertilizer dosing system concealed between the trays is recommended.
The use of mounting frames minimises wall penetrations and installation can be easily and safely carried out even by a single person. VGP Trays and VGP Mounting Panels are manufactured from UV-stabilised.recycled polypropylene and meets the requirements for international “Green Building” certification
