Facade Greening

Modern buildings are sometimes equipped with green walls. In addition to an attractive appearance, a properly arranged and thoughtful landscaping also brings benefits to the building and is used for example as a natural sunscreen as well as an enhancement for the micro climate.

A green wall is distinguished mostly by the fact that only a very limited substrate volume and a correspondingly low water storage capacity can be realized. An automated irrigation is therefore installed in order to prevent drying out of the substrate or damaging the facade by overwatering. The soil moisture sensor SMT100 of TRUEBNER is easily installed and measures in real time the water content in the substrate, so that even with a small substrate volume irrigation scheme works well and quickly.
