Typical build-up of an external living wall (we also offer other build-ups but this is the standard):
1. Indicative brick or concrete surface
2. Vertical Omega carrier rail
3. Waterproof membrane
4. 48x12mm ANS Fixing Rail
5. Osma Squareline Gutter or client specified
6. ANS Living Wall Module 500x250x100mm
7. 16mm vertical irrigation pipe
8. Planting (unique for every project, we work with you and the client to design a plant palette to fit the purpose, for example biodiversity or acoustics, and the desired aesthetic)
9. 16mm inline emitter pressure regulated irrigation pipe
