Sand-lime Bricks for Vertical Green Areas

As a project partner it played a decisive role in the development of the patented Biolit Vertical Green planting system and supplied specially-designed sand-lime bricks. The flexibly scalable system is supplemented with the necessary components for planting and irrigation. The result is a green wall in which plants are integrated in a natural way. The stone modules can be planned both as separate wall elements and as facing shells for facades. Special angular stones enable continuation over corners. The sand-lime brick material meets the sound-insulation and necessary fire-protection requirements. Pilot projects in Castrop-Rauxel, Oberhausen and Spain have proven the advantages in terms of biodiversity and climate protection.
