Our Products Overview
Our main products are the “non-smart”, “smart”, and “full-smart” living wall systems. All these three systems have a lightweight multi-layered structure in which plant species can grow throughout a hydroponic skin, inside a water based, nutrient rich solution without using any soil, by the support of an inert medium such as perlite, rockwool, clay pellets, peat moss, or vermiculite, instead. All our three living wall systems can be used both indoors and outdoors for various residential and/or commercial properties to create unique decorative spaces.
In the non-smart system, irrigation and nutrition of plant species are done manually without using any smart system. Alternatively, it is also possible to automate the irrigation part only, if there is water supply available at the site. Our “smart” living wall system uses Higreenwall Smart Controller, receiving the user’s orders from Higreenwall App, to set the amounts of irrigation, nutrition, and lighting; while Higreenwall Smart Controller+ of our “full smart” living wall system not only receives the user’s orders from Higreenwall App+, and sends them to the living wall, but also receives data, collected by various sensors, and regularly reports them to the user on Higreenwall App+. Moreover, our “full smart” system self-learns the user’s habits using Machine Learning (ML), as a branch of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, automatically resets the orders, and sends them to the living wall.
Our Products Structure
As it is shown on the following figure, our living wall structure comprises of a hydroponic three-layered skin mounted on a base structure. A supportive structure is first connected to the existing wall, and a PVC waterproofing panel is then mounted on it. Then, the hydroponic skin is attached on the PVC panel, and the plant species are planted in a growth medium throughout the hydroponic skin.
Before attaching the hydroponic skin in our smart and full-smart systems, a pipeline, having some drippers, is horizontally mounted at the top, to supply water for irrigation as well as nutrient solution for nutrition of plant species.
There is also a gutter at the bottom of the structure to fully drain the output water of the living walls having an “open” irrigation & nutrition system, or to keep the output water to be pumped, and accordingly reused by the living walls having a “closed” irrigation & nutrition system.
Our Products Smart System
As described in the following video, our smart living wall system uses Higreenwall Smart Controller through which it is possible for the user to send his/her orders, regarding the amounts of irrigation, nutrition, and lighting, from Higreenwall App to the living wall; while Higreenwall Smart Controller+ of our full-smart living wall system has also an extra feature using which it is possible to receive data, collected by various sensors, from the living wall, and send them as several regular reports to the user through SMS and/or push notification on Higreenwall App+. Furthermore, in the full-smart system, the orders, set by the user on his/her Higreenwall App+, as well as the data, collected by the sensors, are both saved on memory of Higreenwall Smart Controller+, and are analyzed by its program which reads and learns all the above information using Machine Learning (ML), as a branch of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology. In fact, Higreenwall Smart Controller+ in our full-smart system continuously monitors the latest condition of the living wall based on the data collected by the sensors, self-learns the user’s habits based on his/her previous orders, automatically resets the orders, and sends them to the living wall. Moreover, Higreenwall App+ receives the signals of any probable problems related to electricity outage and/or water leakage from Higreenwall Smart Controller+, and alerts them to the user through SMS and/or push notification on Higreenwall App+.
Our Products Irrigation & Nutrition System
Based on the availability of the main perquisites of irrigation & nutrition system, e.g. water supply, drainage point, etc., there will be two solutions for the irrigation & nutrition system: “open” or “closed”. In the “open” irrigation & nutrition system, the pipeline is directly connected to the main water supply as well as the nutrient solution tank to provide the system input, and the output water and nutrient solution are fully drained at the bottom of the living wall; while in the “closed” irrigation & nutrition system, having no drainage point at the bottom, the pipeline is not directly connected to the main water supply, and the system input is supplied by pumping and reusing the output water and nutrient solution.
Furthermore, the irrigation & nutrition system of our smart and full-smart living walls comprises of: (1) Electric valve(s), controlling by the smart controller, which transfers water from the main water supply to the living wall ; (2) Nutrient solution tank containing pure water plus N-P-K fertilizer, adding manually; (3) Dosing pump, controlling by the smart controller, which transfers nutrient solution from the tank to the living wall; (4) Smart controller, controlling both the electric valve(s) and dosing pump, through the user’s manual orders on the Higreenwall App for the smart system, or through automatic resetting of the orders by the help of Machine Learning (ML) for the full-smart system; (5) Pipeline which starts from a point right after the electric valve(s) and dosing pump, and ends at the top of the living wall; (6) Drippers which are mounted on the pipeline to have a uniform irrigation and nutrition; and (7) Gutter which is used for drainage of output water (in open irrigation & nutrition system), or keeping the output water to be pumped, and reused (in closed irrigation & nutrition system).
Our Products Benefits & Advantages
All our living wall systems have many benefits such as purifying air, reducing water consumption, acting as a soundproof barrier, increasing real estate value, and also acting as an interior and/or exterior decoration.
Furthermore, these three systems have lots of advantages, comparing to the other living wall systems, among which are: (1) The possibility of using any desirable plant species, even trees and shrubs; (2) The possibility of replacing any plant species by some other ones at any time; (3) The possibility of easy installation on any existing wall or surface having any shapes, and even with a low bearing capacity, since they are light-weight living wall systems applying a maximum load of only 40 kg per sq.m under the saturation condition; (4) Being always fresh due to the uniform irrigation and nutrition of plants’ roots; (5) The ability of the plants’ roots to extend throughout the living wall without any limitations, because of planting within the hydroponic skin, which is an open canvas; and (6) The fact that we offer the newest and the most modern method of design, installation, and maintenance of living wall systems all around the world.
