Green Wall Modular Crate Planting System

An easy-to-install and low maintenance vertical greening crate system

About VersiWall® GM

VersiWall® GM is an engineered modular system for creating attractive and sustainable living walls. It is a source of visual amenity in built environments and provides thermal insulation and cooling benefit to buildings, enhances noise attenuation, and helps to improve air quality.
VersiWall® GM offers architects and developers a complete, durable and dependable, solution for turning heat-absorbing and often dull and monotonous walls into cool and attractive living walls that assimilate seamlessly into a natural or garden environment. It forms an insulating barrier that protects a building from the harmful effects of sunlight and UV exposure, provides noise attenuation, and helps to improve air quality.
VersiWall® GM is an engineered architectural living wall system comprising VGM® planting modules each with a geotextile media bag, support brackets with covers, anti-lift arms and anchoring pilaster systems. This paired with appropriate planting media and an automated drip irrigation-come-fertilization (fertigation) system will ensure optimum results.
VersiWall® GM uses UV-stabilised plastic modules and stainless steel support brackets and pilasters. VersiWall ® GM is certified by independent international test authority to withstand wind uplift from various directions at 110km/h.

Features

All-Around Planting VGM® cut-away side openings enable all-around planting when required. The module design minimises warping and bulging and allows top panel to be removable.

Pre-Planting VGMs pre-planted off-site allow the plants to firmly take root and be vertically orientated. This enables mature living walls to be established soon after installation.

Securing System Each VGM®    is secured by 4 steel brackets anchored to steel pilasters that require minimal wall penetrations. This mounting system is Professional Engineer (PE) certified.

Fertigation System Automated fertigation system with arrow head drippers are inserted directly into the planting medium delivering water and fertilizers directly to the plant root zone.

Anti-Lift Arm Anti-Lift Arms prevent the VGM® lifting off the pilasters during inclement weather. Steel brackets and pilasters are engineered to high safety standards.

Planting Media Lightweight predominantly inorganic planting medium resists slumping. Large media volume and proprietary additives allow a wide variety of plants and ensures sustainability.
