Elmich Greenwall with Innovative Maintenance Access

Green walls and green roofsThe Elmich team in Singapore were recently involved in a project to supply Greenwalls to a large residential complex.

The project brief required that the product be fitted to the buildings facade, the convex wall of the 2nd level and a freestanding wall at the main entrance.

This project had some unique characteristics, these were:


  1. Greenwall modules were bolted directly onto a bespoke metal framework, which enables pairs of adjacent vertical rows of VGM modules to swing inwards like windows. This allows easy maintenance access to the Greenwall modules mounted 15m from ground level.
  2. The modules were also anchored onto stainless steel pilasters and bolted to a concrete wall to a height of 15 m, which included the convex wall of the second level.
  3. The modules were also anchored onto a freestanding metal framework at the entrance, which will greet residents and visitors.

Elmich Greenwall system is comprised of vertical modules assembled from panels that incorporate interlocking snap-on clips for easy assembly, which made this installation possible.

The Elmich Greenwall is also pre-planted in a nursery environment. This meant that the plants were firmly established when installed for an instant landscaped garden effect.

In all, the Greenwall modules covered 140m2 of clubhouse façade.

The Elmich system now blends seamlessly with the landscaped gardens to provide a visually appealing green environment and also help in the environmental objectives of the project.
