Stainless steel applications are ideal for applications in the garden.

Green walls in stainless steel

When designing a green facade, due consideration has to be given to wind, snow and ice loads, as well as to the weight of the plants themselves. In tensile cable systems the top-most fixing points take up all the vertical loading, wind load is distributed between both upper and lower fixing points. Because of the high stress involved, molybdenum-alloyed stainless steel is generally used in these applications, as it has both high-strength and good corrosion resistance. Euro Inox published a brochure on tensile cable systems, frame systems and planted walls.

Vertical landscaping: ecologically sustainable stainless design

With the population boom leaving less open space available for traditional garden beds, stainless steel is helping to introduce Mother Nature to an increasingly unnatural environment. Ecologically sustainable design (ESD) promotes the use of existing resources to maintain biological balance.
