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.
