The green facade plant screen on two sides of the Fonterra head office building in the Wynyard Quarter of Auckland, New Zealand, not only looks great but also provides a natural airflow for cooling in the Summer and insulating properties through the Winter months. The visual created by the green screen rising up seven levels on the exterior, makes this building stand out in an area quickly getting developed with modern buildings and corporate offices.To get more news about Stainless steel green facade, you can visit mesh-fabrics official website.

This vision was made possible by Ronstan supplying custom cable and Carl-Stahl components, to our greening partner in New Zealand: Natural Habitats. The plants were specifically chosen by Natural Habitats to be able to withstand the harsh conditions and vigorous to cover the growth required on the two sides as designed. Planter boxes are situated in 2 places on every level with irrigation systems to ensure strong plant growth.
Our Lady of Mercy College is a Catholic school for senior girls in Parramatta. The eastern facade facing the school has a green wall providing natural shading and a cooling effect to windows with fixed aluminium louvres above giving horizontal shading.

The design of the building incorporates a high level of sustainability and the eastern facade green walls were used in conjunction with overhead aluminium louvres to provide shade and natural ventilation to the building interior. The 470 square metre green wall cable trellis has become a major feature of the campus and is enjoyed by the whole school community. The green wall cable trellis panels consist of AGS4c X-TEND mesh infill panels with a cable border.
