Research project with Plymouth University in 2021 using our Fytotextile Living Wall system
The brief to investigate the thermal properties of the fytotextile Living Wall system
A trial wall was constructed on the Plymouth University campus using our standard construction specification
Installation of trial wall
Trial wall planted
The research concluded that Living Walls can reduce heat loss from buildings by over 30%
The research generated much interest.
Living Walls improve the thermal efficiency of buildings and should be considered as an alternative to rainscreen cladding.
