Modern Outdoor Wall Covering
When considering wall coverings for building facades, materials like brick, plaster, glass and aluminium come to mind. These are traditionally used to clad buildings and while they are useful, the building can come across a tad “hard”.
Have you ever considered using a “soft” finishing for the external façade of your building project?
Artificial green walls or vertical gardens are a great way to soften the external facades of buildings. They literally take the edges off buildings with their soft leaves and curvatures.
The key here, is to ensure that you use artificial plants that are specially formulated for outdoor use. The harsh UV rays in sunlight tend to bleach out colours in artificial plants within months if the plants have not been UV-stabilised.
As external facades are exposed to windy conditions at times, wind catch on the artificial plants is also something you need to consider. Making sure that all parts of the plants are securely fastened during the installation process is critical.
Most artificial plants come with a metal insert so that the plant can be bent and shaped to create more realistic looking installations. With all metal, rust is a very possible and you should ensure that the metal used is stainless steel, so that mishaps of people getting injured by rusty metal can be avoided.
