Jakob’s GreenKit Trellis System is made of stainless steel components, the GreenKit is compact, weather-resistant, and easy to install. Plants absorb CO2, filter out dust and dirt, dampen noise exposure, and in summer provide a natural form of building cooling by casting a shadow and through water evaporation. This reduces the costs of building air conditioning. In addition, the greening protects the facade from UV radiation, hail, driving rain, and wind. Thus, the service life of the building shell is extended as an additional benefit.
Both Jakob Rope Systems wire ropes and end terminations, as well as Webnet wire rope nets, are ideally suited for use as climbing supports for facade greening.
Green walls are one of the key trends in 21st-century architecture, not only for their functional qualities but also for their captivating architectural effect. They make the building unique and add value to the lived experience. The stainless steel cables and wire mesh Webnet are used in pioneering green walls and green skyscrapers around the world, such as the OneCentral Park in Sydney or the green wall in Zurich’s Sihlcity.
Through several large-scale projects in collaboration with renowned architects, landscape architects, and gardeners, Jakob Rope Systems has gained the experience to realize efficient greening solutions that require little maintenance.
Greening of buildings
With Green Solutions, the greening of buildings is no longer restricted to expensive large-scale projects. A ground-based greening with stainless steel cables and the wire mesh Webnet is also an option for family homes or other smaller structures. The plant supports out of stainless steel are easily installed and low in maintenance. The greening can cover the whole building or only parts of the facade. With the appropriate climbing aids, the growth of the plants can be directed and included in the architecture of the building.
Webnet and products from the Green Solutions range are entirely adapted for indoor use. Indoor greenings provide numerous advantages: they improve the indoor climate by filtering particles and CO2 in exchange for oxygen, dampen noise, and add an inspiring touch of green inside.
GreenKit is ideal for creating personalized plant displays, a complete set of cables, spacers, and accessories made of highly durable and UV-resistant stainless steel. GreenKit can be installed on a variety of wall surfaces including brick, wood, and concrete. The system ensures a long life span for plants and provides the space and climbing support to grow properly.
Climbing plants on supports add a vertical dimension to public parks and bring green to urban areas where there is little space for landscape design in the traditional sense. The flexibility of stainless steel cables and wire meshes means there are few limits regarding the design, even three-dimensional greenings are possible.
The outstanding quality of the stainless steel cables and Greening Solution parts is their flexibility. All parts have been carefully designed to fit perfectly together and allow endless possibilities to combine them.
Greening is simple and efficient with GreenKit, and four different configurations make it adaptable in height and width. Each kit includes mounting hardware and instructions, with easily adjusted pieces that can be cut to the exact lengths in the field.
