ANS Global Living wall system
Why our living walls?
Increased environmental value
Using a natural substrate means we have greater flexibility in plant selection, meaning we can create habitats for bees, burrowing insects and encourage natural colonisation. We specifically select plants that fulfil the project objectives.
Top fire rating
We’ve achieved the highest possible fire rating for a living wall, which means our living wall system can be integrated into nearly all buildings. Take a look at our guide in the Reports section which makes the regulations around fire and greenery a lot clearer.
Soil is an eco-system in itself: catering for burrowing insects, absorbing and filtering particulate matter, allowing greater design flexibility, biodiversity and improved air quality. Our organic soil substrate also includes green waste, and we do not use any harmful chemicals to keep our living walls healthy.
Dense coverage and creative design
Our modular system gives us huge scope for creative design and ensures dense coverage with 96 plants per m2. Designed to allow root migration, this means the plants can grow healthily with a longer lifespan.
Benefits of a Living Wall
Design can be tailored to bring significant biodiverse value to specific plant species, including native and pollinator planting. The natural substrate is the foundation from which we design for biodiversity.
Planning & Regulation
Solve regulatory challenges and planning conditions by designing the wall to hit environmental targets. Living walls also help to achieve building standards such as BREEAM and WELL.
Science proves that people are drawn to spaces with natural features. On several retail projects, it was noted that footfall increased as a direct result of our work. Not only giving a return on investment, but this also makes a building financially attractive.
Soil is able to capture particulate matter and gives us greater design flexibility, allowing us to select species that hold air purification properties.
Health & Well-being
People working in an environment with plants were 12% more productive and less stressed than those who worked in a space without natural features. Workspace design has direct effects on employee performance and well-being.
