One of the most wonderful developments in green wall and building landscaping is the dynamic use of stainless-steel tension systems and wire rope arrangements. The benefits of stainless steel are that that it's resilient, long lasting, aesthetic, and very strong. The options of stainless steel are various arrangements that can be configured across multiple situations both walled or in space.
Stainless-steel systems also have low maintenance needs, which reduces your costs over time. The beauty of stainless-steel wire is its minimalist appearance. As the plants grow, the trellis virtually disappears – making the living wall appear to float effortlessly.
Primarily the arrangements can in any format, but the most common types are either trellis or a series of lines. These arrangements provide neatness, synchronicity and in most cases a strong connection to the local architecture.
Trellises can be in any shape and dimension and provide the best type of support structure for multi-storey and commercial projects, in terms of strength, robustness, flexibility and longevity.
Other green wall options are as follows:
A series of single aligned wires – these can be either vertical or horizontal stainless-steel wire cables. Vertical wires are well-suited to twining plants while horizontal wires can work well for scramblers. Additionally, because the connections are simple to install wire lines can be in any direction and any pattern. The possibilities are endless.
Diamond cross or square lattice systems – where cables cross over each other providing a suitable support for climbing and scrambling plants.
Composed mesh – useful for climbers, scramblers, securing planter boxes and green-wall panels and for wrapping structures. Mesh can also allow for a very speedy installation.
Whatever system you choose, there is some assessment work to review specific needs, type of greenery to be applied, the fixing structures, and the type of fittings that will be used to connect everything together. And it must be engineered and pre-tensioned to suit the building and the greenery, and weight elements of the plant types.
