MOBILANE - Self Contained Living Walls Move Indoors

Living walls are set to become an increasingly common feature of building interiors following the launch of the LivePanel Interior living wall system from Mobilane.

The LivePanel Interior system is suitable for a wide range of building types, including offices and call centres, hotels, leisure centres, health centres and gyms, retail and business centres. The system is easy to install and requires no building alteration work prior to installation. All that’s needed is a plain wall, suitable lighting and an electric power socket. A basic LivePanel Interior system can be installed in a single morning.

The benefits of plants in offices and other public spaces are widely recognised. Surprisingly, the air inside a building can be up to nine times more polluted than outside due to emissions from electrical equipment, paint, and furniture, which can be compounded by inadequate air conditioning and ventilation. Plants combat this by removing carbon dioxide (which lowers work performance), as well as particulate pollutants and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and help to balancing humidity. The psychological effects of plants indoors are also well understood and research has shown that interior plants can reduce stress, improve health, affect mood and increase productivity in the workplace.

The LivePanel Interior living wall system features a built-in computerised irrigation system and specially developed nutritionally balanced minerals substrate to support vegetation. Like the exterior version, the LivePanel Interior system can support a wide variety of plant types, depending on available lighting and level of maintenance needed. Maintenance is minimal and once a month the system is serviced and the water and feeding levels are tested. The reservoir will be adjusted accordingly if required. The system takes up little space, but the effect is stunning.

Speaking about the system, Sean Farrell of Mobilane said: “The LivePanel system is setting new standards for design and reliability on exterior walls. However, the robust nature of the system makes it ideal for interior use. The system offers designers nearly infinite aesthetic possibilities both inside and outside buildings and the system can support everything from flowers to ferns. For building owners and designers an interior living wall represents the ultimate in sustainable design and provides a superior alternative to the humble potted plant for building owners looking to green their interior environments.”

LivePanel Interior can be supplied in a range of bespoke sizes to suit almost any project.
