Greener Building Products

Mobilanes – Outdoor Product Range

As our cities continue to develop, designers and architects are now faced with even greater environmental-based challenges in built environments. Below is information on 3 systems developed by Mobilane that can match up to these challenges, blending and harmonising nature with modern cities.

#1 LivePanel

The patented LivePanel system involves an innovative and unique vertical-landscaping application. For both outdoors and indoors, LivePanel is a type of sustainable “living wall” green walls system, which has become extremely popular, helping to make a lot more urban spaces greener.

The LivePanel system seamlessly transforms walls that were once cold and boring into living and warm surfaces. These modular “living wall” systems come with exchangeable plant-cassettes that are made up of cups to place plants into. Each cassette row is positioned into a duct-rail that absorbs water from a duct through a type of capillary system.

LivePanel is useful for many vertical-landscaping applications and it is easy to install on different wall types.

#2 Green Screens

Privacy is vital when using green hedges in the form of a divider. You often have to wait many years before your hedge becomes dense enough in order to provide privacy. The Green Screen by Mobilane is installed instantly, providing the illusion that your hedge has already been there for a long time.

This patented Mobilane system consists of a type of metal grid, which is covered entirely with vegetation. The plants come in biodegradable pots and compost. The coconut pots degrade within 1 to 2 years, while the plants secure themselves by rooting into the subsoil that surrounds the plants.

Mobilane also offers different varieties, providing customers with choices on the type of hedge they would like. This has helped to create variation when it comes to the different plant types, heights, and colours.

Since the Green Screen comes in a variety of versions, you can use it as a type of divider in different ways. Some of these ideas include creating a garden room, and a way to separate swimming pools, patios, or carports. The Green Screen can also be an attractive addition when used in wooden containers in areas such as a patio or balcony.
