Gone are the days of ugly concrete walls with the launch of the
living walls system from SIG Design & Technology– a practical,
easy-to-install and easy to manage vertical planting module for the
sides of buildings.
The Living Wall System, used to soften the look of London’s new Westfield Shopping Centre, is a ready-to-go modular system with built in watering and drainage.
Produced in partnership with Aldingbourne Nurseries, which pre-grow the modules so they come ready supplied, the vertical planting provides year-round greenery and obvious green creds to a building.
The system can be attached to a wall or vertical structure, each cell is angled and has water flowing through to a water retention fleece. This built-in irrigation system makes sure the plants are looked after day-in, day-out.
Each module is hand planted, so every living wall can be unique to the building it adorns.
SIG D & T trading director, Mike Crook says: “21st century building technology all about sustainability but when it comes to turning plans into reality, clients are looking for a guiding hand.”
“We partner clients from inspiration to installation.”
“Our designs enable the roof to work harder and all products are tried, tested and guaranteed by SIG D & T, so their combination offers a multitude of efficient and easy green solutions.”
