Attractive green façades are in vogue, are eye-catching and enhance the building. In the past, ivy grew uncontrollably along façades, damaging the buildings with its tightly gripping tendrils. Different systems are available depending on the type of climbing plant, as well as the size and the mounting base of the greenery. GREENCABLE HEAVY / PROJECTS / SAFETY are all about individual planning including structural analysis.
Thanks to simple installation and high flexibility in design, the LIGHT system ensures longevity and a delicate appearance even during the growth phase of the climbing plants.
The bracket system as an all-in-one solution offers the optimal solution for planners and architects, especially for ETIC systems, including all fasteners and a structural analysis of the system.

THE ADVANTAGES OF A GREEN FACADE
IMPROVING THE MICROCLIMATE
Green facades bind CO2 and generate oxygen for the ambient air. Water is released through the leaves. This evaporation effect lowers the temperature and thus acts as a natural air conditioning system in the immediate vicinity. Furthermore, large leaves and blossoms also bind fine dust particles from the air. The ecological filtering of air pollutants can significantly improve air quality. The absorption of water in the plants and roots reduces damage caused by heavy rain and relieves the burden on the municipal sewer system.
HEAT INSULATION ON THE FACADE
In summer, a green façade acts as an additional heat shield. The shade provided by the plants ensures that fewer heat rays reach the building. This prevents overheating and the reflection of the sun’s rays is largely eliminated. Evergreen plant
species create an external insulation layer which helps keep out the cold in winter.
BUILDING PROTECTION AND NOISE REDUCTION
A dense layer of green on the outside of a building provides natural protection against driving rain, hail and UV rays. This increases the service life of the façade and saves renovation costs. The foliage of a green façade is an effective way of
reducing noise levels. It absorbs sound waves and reduces reflections, noticeably reducing noise pollution in cities.
INFLUENCE ON PEOPLE
Living and working in a green environment has a positive impact on the well-being of many people. A green façade is perceived as space-expanding and calming, facilitating relaxation and ensuring less stress. In green districts, there is less aggression, violence and vandalism. This makes the public space attractive and increases the amenity values and the quality of life in otherwise somewhat dull settlements.
