Green walls can be constructed as freestanding elements for use as enclosures, fencing, wind breaks, visual screening, shading components, rooftop perimeters, and even for urban agriculture. There are several important benefits when designing and using greenscreen®.

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 does not need to be held in tension when mounting and modular components can be stacked to create tall installations. greenscreen® panels can be oriented horizontally and span up to ten feet in fencing applications, significantly reducing structural post costs when compared with other fencing systems.

Freestanding: The greenscreen® Freestanding Trellis features panels oriented either vertically or horizontally. Our Freestanding Mounting Options documents show details for typical horizontal, vertical, and curved panel mounting. Freestanding applications require consideration of wind load and soil conditions that affect post imbed length, and footing size. When mounted vertically, panels may be cantilevered in the truss direction up to approximately 30% of their individual length. For larger freestanding applications that exceed the dimensions of a simple trellis fence configuration, greenscreen® panels are typically attached to a designed structural form. In addition to our flat panel, our Crimped-to-Curve panel can be used in freestanding applications; it is rigid, stackable, and can be fabricated at radius increments from 4-12'.

Vines and other plant types used for freestanding green wall designs benefit from the additional support of the greenscreen® three-dimensional construction that provides continuous plant support, adequate room for plant development to maturity, and a captive growing space.

Attachment: greenscreen® has a complete collection of engineered mounting hardware available in matching powdercoat finishes. The clip system is designed to work with 3" post material matching the panel depth, but is easily adaptable to a wide variety of mounting conditions and post materials.
  • 5133R-Snap Clip-Mounts to one side of panel and surface of post
  • 5141-C Clip-For use with panels that have edge trim at connection edge

Steel posts are available from our factory in 3" round or square with matching finishes.

Design: The unique structural characteristics of the rigid greenscreen® panel increases the span capability for attachment considerations because the web truss structure is integral and not intermittent. 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 can be aligned between structure, mounted behind or in front of posts and columns.

greenscreen® has two optional edge trims available for using as visual accent, for use as a closure strip adjacent to pedestrian traffic, for a trimming edge for plant maintenance, and with panels that are designed in unique shapes or cut at angles.
  • 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.

Project managers will guide you through the estimating, ordering, fabrication, delivery and installation phases so that your projects are delivered on time and within budget. CAD shop drawings, engineering and BIM available, along with plant selection guidelines, maintenance suggestions, and research summaries. The elements are simple...the possibilities are endless!

Design Tools
greenscreen® has available an updated catalog with all of the technical information that you need to design and specify green facade walls into projects.

Appropriate plant material selection is critical to the long term success of your green facade wall project and a recommended plant list based upon the new USDA Hardiness Zone Map is available for your reference.

With over 7000 installations worldwide, greenscreen® has the experience and knowledge that you need to educate clients about green facade walls. Over 175 vertical market case studies are available to include in your client’s presentation.

As a product manufacturer, greenscreen® supports the commitment and vision of design professionals to incorporate low impact, environmentally sensitive building practices and promote sustainable design principles by providing critical reviews of credit contributions to the LEED and SITES™ programs including a downloadable Recycled Content Declaration.

Continuing Education Tools
In an effort to help further the knowledge of our design partners, the greenscreen® Education Series – Research Reviews presents a series of briefs composed as summaries about important issues supported by international research efforts.

Accredited continuing education units (CEU) can be obtained from AEC Daily, Hanley Wood University and McGraw Hill Construction’s Continuing Education Center as well as the Considerations for Advanced Green Facade Design White Paper available on our website.
