Los Angeles, CA, June 03, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- As a leader in green wall design, greenscreen® manufactures a unique three-dimensional, welded wire trellising system that functions as a non-intrusive, natural building element, creating a captive growing space for plants to flourish and intertwine.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, greenscreen® was founded on the environmental principals to “design with nature” and to integrate plant material in the built environment. In line with a commitment to superior environmental principles, the greenscreen® system is made from recycled steel and offers an innovative three-dimensional wire space frame configuration that creates a three-inch deep growing space, allowing plants to intertwine and grow within the panel.
With the easily adaptable attachment clip system, the panel can attach to a building façade and span openings between floors or horizontally between posts. The one-of-a-kind wire space frame configuration is able to span between structure members, thus fences, free-standing screens and gazebos are just some of the many applications perfect for supporting plants and promoting healthy growth.
“With the greenscreen® system, users are able to naturally add aesthetic diversity to their space by using plant materials,” says James Sable of greenscreen®. “Our product can act as a wall, change a façade or create an environment.”
Introduced in 1993, greenscreen® was founded by architect John Souza and textile designer Ruth Katzenstein when it became apparent that the landscape architecture and architecture communities were interested in a unique green wall that was sustainable and non-intrusive to the building envelope. The greenscreen® founders turned to an existing space frame panel already being manufactured in southern California for the past 25 years. The panel was originally designed for use in a panelized building system for low-cost housing projects, as well as visual display and merchandising applications.
greenscreen® further adapted the panel and added accessory items while upgrading the finishes for landscape use. Since then, thousands of greenscreen® projects have been installed both nationally and internationally where vertical landscape elements are required.
Since its inception, greenscreen® has made efforts to refine manufacturing while employing the best environmental solutions to produce product components.
These solutions include increased energy efficiencies, reduction of waste, creation of an improved manufacturing environment for expanding staff, use of recycled content for product, packaging and marketing materials, and refinement of finishing processes.
“At greenscreen®, we’re committed to high environmental standards and a superior quality product,” said Sable. “And since greenscreen® is so versatile, it can enhance almost any type of project or location.”
The company’s current product line includes the trellis panel, attachment hardware, support posts, columns, custom shapes and curved panels. The greenscreen® system can benefit virtually every segment of the built environment including: educational facilities, parking structures, corporate campus environments, retail, bus and light rail transit shelters, parks and recreations, government buildings, signage, interiors, hospitals, entertainment venues and more.
