How the G-O2TM Growall system Works
Why don't the plants fall out of the green wall?
Our fabricated metal G-O2TM GroWall panels have a framework that holds the plants in place untill they root in. The G-O2TM GroWall panels are grown laying down horizontally at first in the controlled environment of a professional grower's greenhouse. Once the plants mature and have rooted into the GroWall panels (several weeks to months) the plants are anchored into the specialized media and structure of the system. The growth of the root system also expands the soil volume so it pushes against the walls of the GroWall Panel preventing them from falling out when the GroWall panels are turned vertically.
How do you attach the green wall panels to the wall?
The G-O2TM GroWall panels are hung on a simple bracket system that attaches easily to most surfaces, whether indoor or outdoor. A waterproofing membrane is recommended on the surface behind the mounting brackets. Due to the unique design of the bracketing system, the brackets sit off the wall a 1/2 inch , ensuring that the GroWall panels never touch the wall surface they are mounted to.This allows for adequate airflow between the GroWall and the mounting surface, and prevents condensation on the back of the panels from ever touching the wall surface behind them.
Each panel is hung individually on the brackets, allowing for ease of installation and ease of replacement or adjustment at any time after they are installed. Panels do not interlock or stack on top of one another; each is hung like a picture frame sits on a wall and then sit side by side to create an entire wall of plants.
How do you water the G-O2TM GroWall ?
Because plants are living things that need water to survive, our G-O2TM GroWall system is installed with a built-in irrigation system. You wouldn't put in a new lawn without a sprinkler system, would you? The G-O2TM Growall panels have notches in the top of each and every panel to accommodate 1/4” drip irrigation tubing. The panels have cutouts every six inches that line up with the drip irrigation's emitters that allow for free flow of water through each panel. Gravity and capillary action in the soil media allow water to flow freely throughout the entire panel and through the bottom of the panels where they are emptied onto the ground or into our specially engineered catch basins.
