A living wall offers numerous benefits at an economic, ecological, and societal level. A living wall helps to purify the air, to reduce the ambient temperature, to regulate the overall temperature and promotes biodiversity indoors. Living Walls are part of climate-proof construction.
With a Living Wall Concept system, you contribute to air purification in your home or business, which has a positive effect on the environment around you.
The plants in a living wall convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into oxygen. One square meter of living wall removes 2.3 kg of CO2 per year from the air and produces 1.7 kg of oxygen!
They also filter out the particulate matter (dust, impurities, chemicals, etc.) that’s found in most home and office environments.
Studies show living and working in a green environment has a positive effect on the well-being of people. Greenery offers relaxation and reduces stress.
Plants absorb sunlight—50% is absorbed and 30% reflected, which helps to create a cooler and more pleasant climate in hot weather.
For the indoors, this means 33% less air conditioning is required, resulting in more energy savings!
And in the winter they do the opposite—they help heat your spaces.
A living wall acts as a sound barrier to your home or office building, absorbing 41% more sound than a traditional facade—which means the environment is much quieter, both inside and outside.
Plants naturally contain a lot of moisture. With a living wall you create a natural fire-resistant barrier inside your house or office building.
Every living system requires biodiversity to maintain the checks and balances of a healthy environment—the more diversity, the more resistant the system.
A living wall enhances biodiversity, which provides greater reliance to the environment around you.
