Because each wall technique is specific, the technical elements to take into account are different. The support structure elements, the type of substrate used, the weight of the system, the consumption of water and fertilizer, the modularity, the durability of the system vary depending on the techniques.
The Vertiflore® green wall system is a patented product, under TECHNICAL NOTICE: n ° 2.2 / 15-1693-V1 from CSTB. The only manufacturer to have obtained a technical opinion on the added green cladding.
These are wire mesh cages (made of 4.8 mm GRAPAL type wires from ARCELOR with an overall dimension of: 1 m long, 37 cm high and 12 cm deep as standard). The Vertiflore® system allows each bin to be dismantled individually, anywhere on the wall surface.
As part of a possible check of the rear part of the system, it will be easy to check an attachment point or observe the condition of the insulation or load-bearing wall.
The bins are fixed to the rail by hooks adjoining the bin with slits on the back of the bin which are directly blocked in the lower bin.
For the container at the foot of the wall, the waits are blocked by a flat fixed to the lower rail, the latter rail must have an anti-tilt role.
The tubs are covered with a rot-proof moisturizing mat made from thermo-bonded black plastic fibers. The film has class M1 fire resistance. The film has a high tear capacity.

• 12 Dn in the direction of the width
This substrate, studied with CRNS and INRA, allows the plant to take root properly, to create real bacterial life with microbial exchanges.
