Green Wall Systems
Our Green Wall solutions provide an environmentally friendly, sustainable living wall system for design and construction professionals. Drawing on combinations of products, including the Jakob range of stainless steel wire ropes, rods and mesh, our Green Wall systems allows architects to realise a variety of designs on the vast majority of building structures - achieving environmentally friendly, sustainable solutions that deliver a range of aesthetic, performance and cost benefits.
Each component in our range is manufactured from High Grade 316 Stainless Steel. This gives complete quality assurance for the whole life of a building – making the system suitable for even the harshest environments, including coastal applications.
The Jakob system is light weight and easy and fast to install, supporting new plants which are planted on site. Conventionally, plants are grown up the Green Wall System, but they may also be cascaded down — i.e. grown from the top down. In either case, maintenance is simple and straightforward, carried out at the planter level.
The system is equally suited to new build and retro-fit projects and can be fixed to the majority of façade materials. For advice on the most appropriate fixing methods for different materials and structures, please contact our technical support team.
Our comprehensive product range is backed by a full technical support package. Where appropriate we work with a number of carefully selected strategic partners to deliver complete projects of the highest quality, working with established companies who are experts in landscape design, planting schemes, cultivation, irrigation systems and plant maintenance.
We can offer complete advice and guidance on the most appropriate planting schemes to meet particular project or application requirements.
Where necessary we work with landscape designers and nurseries to deliver the complete Green Wall Solution, including irrigation and maintenance regimes.
Not all Green Wall projects require irrigation; the need depends on a combination of factors including the area, height, format and location of the system – as well as the planting scheme.
If irrigation is required, we can provide a detailed design solution, as well as supplying and installing the specified system. We are able to supply appropriate water tanks, either above ground or buried, which fully conform to the relevant regulations. For more complex schemes, we can provide a fully computer-controlled system to manage the individual drip feeders for plants’ roots and the watering schedules, with the option to add in rain sensors, nutrient mixtures etc.
Although our systems are generally designed to be installed by any competent work person, without the need for specialist tools or equipment, we provide a national installation service for customers who prefer a complete design, supply and fit solution.
Whilst we are able to provide full maintenance schedules, we are equally happy to directly manage every aspect of the maintenance of our Green Wall systems.
For certain projects, we are able to design, manufacture and supply bespoke planters for specific planting needs. Planters may be manufactured from a range of materials, including stainless or galvanised steel and aluminium, and may be wall mounted or free standing.
Green Wall Systems
Green Walls (sometimes called Living Walls) have been a feature of buildings for many centuries, although the more traditional invasive ‘ivy-covered’ façades of Victorian homes have been replaced by modern, purpose-built systems, delivering a wide range of benefits.
