ELMICH VGM GREEN WALL

The Elmich VGM Green wall is a wall, that can be either free-standing or part of a building and is partially or completely covered with vegetation and, in some cases, soil or an inorganic growing medium.

How does a Green Wall work?

A green wall is comprised of vertical modules assembled from high strength lightweight structural panels, incorporating interlocking snap-on clips for easy assembly. The front panel has a unique grid to facilitate planting of up to sixteen plants per module.

Green wall modules contain a geo textile liner into which is placed a suitable planting mix. The modules are pre planted in a nursery environment to allow proper establishment to occur before installation on site.

The modules are either mechanically fastened on walls or inserted into freestanding steel support racking structures. They also include drip irrigation systems that are positioned at appropriate intervals, depending on wall heights. Collection trays may be positioned, at ground level to allow overflow water to be discharged or recycled.
