A Green Wall acts as a bio filter, enhancing air quality by breaking down harmful airborne contaminants and transforming them into clean oxygen. Like a green roof, a green wall absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen and therefore reduces greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. It retains rain water that would otherwise run off the side of the building and overflow our sewer system.
Green Walls reduce energy consumption by providing a layer of insulation around the building. This keeps the building cooler in summer, reducing the reliance on air conditioning and protecting the building from the cold in winter. This layer of insulation also protects the building's facade from harmful UV rays and other damaging weather conditions, as well as creating a sound barrier.
