Whereas once the greening of buildings was left largely to nature, modern construction materials and methods make the practice more scientific, sustainable and long lasting – ensuring that the Green Wall benefits derived are not at the expense of the integrity of the building structure.
Our proven system uses a combination of high-quality stainless steel ropes, rods and mesh to create an elegant, sustainable and cost effective green wall solution.
Unlike modular systems the Jakob green wall system is lightweight, easy and fast to install. Our Green wall systems support new plants which are planted on site. Typically for a square meter of coverage, the system weighs only 20-30kg when planted.
Plants can either be grown up green wall systems or cascaded down. In either case maintenance is simple and straightforward and is carried out at the planter level. Our systems not only offer a sustainable solution but are also energy efficient in production. Our range accounts for very little embodied energy per square meter of building. The system is completely recyclable at the end of its useful life.
Green wall structures create unique designs even before schemes are fully planted. The combination of steel rod, rope and Webnet provide elegant design options, giving additional texture to facades and providing strong shadow definition.
The Jakob product range is backed by a full technical support package. Assisting architects, developers and contractors in selecting the best system to meet their aesthetic and performance needs. We also supply a complete design, supply , fit and maintenance service.

When it comes to designing green walls, no two are ever the same, with each one needing to be designed to suit the individual characteristics of its location. We’ve identified 5 key green wall considerations that will impact on its climbing plants, all of which must be taken into account: light, shade wind, temperature and rainfall. By researching and analysing each of these, in the environment where the green wall is to be located, precise planning can be carried out, and a green wall that wi...

In 2019 National governments and local authorities are increasingly taking measures to improve air quality in towns and cities, with air pollution widely recognised as the most significant environmental risk to human health in the UK, and the fourth biggest threat overall - after cancer, heart disease and obesity. DEFRA published its ‘Clean Air Strategy’ that laid out a series of goals and actions required to achieve them, including the reduction of toxic pollutants like nitrogen oxides, pa...
