New green wall system launched

A new 'biodiversity' living wall system called Duragreen is launching into the UK through Surrey-based Livingwallz.

Duragreen Biodiversity Walls were developed in the Netherlands, and have been designed to support plant species which to date have been typically used on extensive sedum green-roofs.

The pre-grown modules can be planted up to accommodate a particular site’s requirements or to an ecologists specified plant list.

The 600 X 600mm modular units have been designed to integrate directly into the fabric of the building to form the outer façade, while the modules are supplied pre-grown to install using a clip system.

The modules conform to EN ISO1793-1 Category A2 noise absorption for road barriers, Weighted Sound Absorption Coefficient (EN ISO 1654:1997 = 0.60 (MH).

Director Gordon Smith said: "Sedum and green roof plants typically require far less maintenance and consume significantly less water than living wall systems currently available in the UK."
