The ANS Living Wall System has the rating Class B-s2-d0. This is the highest achievable rating including substrate and planting.
Fire restrictions for living walls:
- Residential buildings over 18m high are generally not suitable for living walls.
- Open sided car parks would need to be designed with a suitable non-combustible backing board.
We understand the uncertainty for architects around fire and living walls. Our fully trained consultants are able to guide you through the ins-and-outs of where and how to design a living wall.
It's important to understand the opportunities there are with these fire restrictions. We have a specifically created guide to explain where and how you can integrate living walls. For further information on this, please contact us.
With the range of sizes available, the price does differ. Get in touch and we can discuss the size of the space, what could work and the budget costs.
Yes, the frame can be printed with any image, pattern or lettering.
Lighting levels are a factor that need to be considered when selecting the plants, but there is an extensive plant range to choose from which means you can create a unique design. The plants can be changed as often as you like for a refresh.
The plants are watered through the integrated water tanks hidden in the frame. These ensure the plants are never over or under-watered and remain at optimum health. These water tanks will need topping up every 6 weeks.
The living canvas is delivered as part of a kit with clear instructions, making installation easy – no technical expertise required.
The central cassette of the living canvas is removable which makes any plant replacement easy (also means you get to change up the design when you wish). The hidden integral water tanks only need refilling every 6 weeks, making maintenance trouble-free even in commercial locations. When the water is running low, a tiny watering can will pop out under the frame. This is the time to top up the water reservoir which sits in the frame, simply done with the funnel provided. That’s it!
Our living canvas’s come in five different sizes, ranging from 720mm x 720mm to 1120mm x 1700mm.
