ABOUT greenewall

what is greenewall? 

greenewall privacy sound wall is composed of materials derived from nature and formed into a post and wall panel system.

The primary materials of a greenewall panel wall are composed of natural minerals from the earth. The primary ingredient is Magnesium Oxide, a naturally occurring mineral. It is waterproof, rodent, and insect resistant.

The core is bonded to the outer surface of the wall panels with a 100% water-based latex adhesive, which meets Greenguard standards. The outer surfaces of the wall panels are covered with an impact-resistant, fireproof, waterproof layer composed of a green-certified material, which can contribute to LEED points for green buildings. In the manufacturing process of this material, carbon dioxide is actually absorbed. This extremely durable and strong product is 100% recyclable.

Distinctive design elements

The final surface layer of the wall panel assembly may be coated in a layer of DPR Acrylic stucco, stone veneer or brick veneer guaranteed to protect the wall for the lifetime of the product. It too can contribute to LEED points for green building. Choose from a variety of stucco colors and textures to complement each unique project. Powder-coated steel posts set 2 feet into the ground and secured by concrete footings support the entire wall panel assembly. Steel is one of the most commonly recycled materials and is 100% recyclable.

greenewall wall panels are manufactured 10 feet long by 4 feet high, are stackable and interlocking. All components interlock, allowing custom solutions to each landscape project.

Variations and accessories might include large custom pillars, end columns, gates, top caps, along with planters, water features, feeders, seating, etc; all to add a personalized touch to your greenewall.

Greenewall 1-hour Torch Test

Greenewall can provide a fire-resistant barrier around your property. In grass, brush or chaparral fires, leafy material piled up against the outer surface of a fence can ignite a horizontal fire ladder which can reach the primary building. Greenewall inhibits this type of ignition. This test shows the minimal effect produced on a finish-ready panel of a torch flame located 3” from the panel surface over a 1- hour period. As demonstrated at the end of the hour, no flame has penetrated or ignited the wall panel. The common customer finish choices for greenewall are stucco, brick or stone facing, most commercial versions of which are fireproof or highly fire resistant.

Greenewall system is composed of 3 elements: steel posts, SIP-type panels hardened with fireproof mineral-composition faces, and fire-resistant architectural foam trim. The components are locked together so only fire-resistant surfaces are exposed. PANELS (shown in video) are composed of an EPS core faced with magnesium oxide mineral board ¼” thick. There are no flammable or digestible ingredients in the facing board. TRIM is standard architectural grade EPS with a bonded Fiberglas and concrete outer Layer. EPS will melt, but in greenewall is always protected by fire-resistant outer layers.
