Why would you opt for a Total Value Wall?

Green facades are increasingly becoming a necessity. Especially in urban environments where green and dark surfaces entail concerns relating to heat. However, the presence of vegetation can be very effective when it comes to cooling the environment and absorbing fine particulates. Additionally, green walls can be used as sewage plants.

Our company, MUURTUIN BVBA, is a Flemish SME known for its high-end systems supply for non-land-related green facades (i.e. living wall systems). We pursue the goal to enhance our lives by ameliorating the quality of urban environments.

Total Value Wall enables us to deploy nature as high-value sustainable construction solutions. Simultaneously, our walls equally comply with the esthetic requirements as with the mental and physical health of our customers.

Objective of our demo-setups: count yourself green!

There is growing scientific evidence relating to the benefits of green facades. These general results, however, provide insufficient input for individual construction projects. A building contractor has to be able to calculate the effects in his construction and budget plans for his costumers.

Thanks to our Total Value Wall test locations in Belgium we can accumulate needed real-time data concerning temperature, particulate matter, co2, and water treatment. You can closely follow our tests, which are accessible on this website, by checking our locations here.

This way we validate the set of existing scientific proof in reality about our environment and our climate. Hence, you will be able to count with green and to change your perception on the construction industry and a eco-friendly lifestyle.

Some scientifically proven examples for both the building and its residents and the direct environment:

  • increase in the durability of building materials by offering protection against sunlight and precipitation (‘shell’ for the building against rainfall, UV radiation, heath, and corrosion…)
  • improvement of thermal and acoustic isolation
  • cooling of the outside air (prevention of heath island effect)
  • decrease in energy consumption of buildings (less need for air conditioning and heating)
  • improved emotional well-being (thanks to a green environment)
  • improved air quality because of the absorption of fine particulates, co2, and sub-products of incineration processes
  • increase in urban biodiversity (species of flora and fauna)
  • improved airflow through the streets
