Greenscreen: Wall mounted green facade wall/trellis

2.2 out of 5 stars2.2(21 reviews)

When designing a successful wall mounted green facade trellis there are several important considerations.

The Greenscreen trellis panel is fabricated with a continuous welded wire truss system that creates a three inch depth with unique structural capabilities for mounting and attachment. The unique three-dimensional design of the Greenscreen trellis panel provides a "captive growing space" for plant material. Plants climbing vertically onto a support structure utilize either main-stem twining, leaf hooking, separate twining tendrils, or have runner/scrambler characteristics. All of these plant attachment types benefit from the additional support of the Greenscreen three-dimensional construction that provides virtually continuous plant support, adequate room for plant development to maturity, and an excellent surface for trimming and plant maintenance.

Wall Mounted: The Greenscreen Wall Mounted trellis is designed to be supported by a system of attachment hardware that keeps the panel just off the wall surface, not layered directly against the building or structural membrane. When installed off of the surface, the space adjacent to the building or structure provides air circulation contributing to plant health, reduction of potential moisture build up at the building surface, and also enables the plant's attachment characteristics to utilize the three dimensional structure of Greenscreen. Panels can be mounted vertically or horizontally and combined to cover large surfaces. When designing for larger areas of coverage, panels can be notched and trimmed for specific facade conditions such as access panels, windows, ventilation and to create patterns or shapes.

Attachment: Greenscreen has a complete collection of engineered wall mount attachment hardware available in matching powdercoat finishes. This clip system provides flexibility to increase the space between the mounting surface and the trellis panel to accommodate structural elements, conduits, drainage components, and other irregular surface conditions.

  • 5132R-Adjustable Mounting Clip-For an open space adjustable from 3/4" to 2-1/4"
  • 5132G-Gusseted Mounting Clip-For an open space up to 6", by specification, with 1-1/2" field adjustment
  • 5159-Standoff Bracket-For an open space up to 15", by specification, with 1-1/2" field adjustment
  • 5141-C Clip - For use with panels that have edge trim at connection edge


Design: The unique structural characteristics of the Greenscreen panel creates an opportunity to design with increased span capability for attachment considerations. Because the web truss structure is integral and not intermittent, the Greenscreen panel does not need to be held in tension or require a heavy structural frame to surround the panel. Our Wall Mounted-Mounting Options document provides a diagram for clip locations on panels of varying sizes. For special wind loads exceeding 90mph, or exceptional ice load and wind load conditions, we have the experience and engineering to help with special design requirements. Modular panels typically are aligned to create green walls and to cover large surfaces.

Greenscreen has two optional edge trims available for using as visual accent, for use as a closure strip at perimeter areas adjacent to pedestrian access or windows, or for trimming panels that are designed in unique shapes or cut at angle.

  • 5104-Steel Channel Trim-A continuous channel shaped edge cap that also controls plant growth. Avoid use at bottom edge where water pooling could occur.
  • 5105-Steel Edge Trim-An open edge trim that provides an excellent trimming surface


There are five standard powdercoat finishes available for Greenscreen and attachment hardware:

  • Black, Green, Silver, White, Bronze and Custom colors available.
