Passive Living Walls

This living wall involves a supporting structure where the Fitotextil(R) substrate is attached. A waterproof backing isolates the system from the building wall in order to avoid wetting problems. An irrigation network with emitters, fertirrigation and lighting systems are required, however different monitoring systems are optional. Living Walls are beautiful natural structures which can be installed indoors or outdoors.

Energy benefits
