I'm glad to share with you the recording of our 1st webinar, where we introduce our partners' GSky Versa Walls. Our webinars will be short and will not exceed 15 minutes each, to make sure you can squeeze it in your tight schedule!
Here is a summary of the main points highlighted in this webinar;
Bloom's Green Solutions is the MENA distributors of GSKY Green Wall Systems. BLOOMS was founded this year, with a focus on Greening as an engineered environmental solution. By greening, I mean using living plants to help enhance air quality, reduce energy consumption and restore our lost biodiversity.
As you all know, our region already lacks green coverage. Many studies raise the alarm, that around 50 to 70% of our local plants' species are facing the threat of Extinction and this is very dangerous. The risks our local biodiversity is facing now is one of the main reasons I started this company in the first place.
The huge urban development we have seen in the past 70 years, is associated with new environmental and economic challenges. Urban Heat Island effect, for example, is associated with the huge cooling demand in our region which is already hot and dry! Many studies have proven the significant impact of installing exterior green walls on cooling the exterior surfaces of buildings, hence reducing cooling demands inside buildings.
Air pollution and the overall air quality is reaching higher peaks than ever, inside and outside our buildings. We’re not only talking about Carbon Dioxide (CO2)! Secondhand smoke, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Ground level-ozone, and of course Particulate Matter (PM10 and PM2.5) are causing critical risks on both long and short terms. Air pollutants can cause respiratory problems, heart diseases, infections, and can even be fatal in the long term exposure. Many studies have discussed the positive impact of internal and external green walls in the reduction of air pollutants and enhancing air quality.
One of the most innovative greening solutions is GSky Green Walls. GSky Team is very supportive and their Innovative system is amazing! Within 15 years GSKY successfully installed more than 800 beautiful living walls in 19 countries. No failures, defects or complaints have been recorded so far.
GSky offers interior and exterior VERSA systems. Both are identical in terms of design, installation, and maintenance. the only difference is the tray size; interior Versa system is designed to adopt 4-inch pots while the exterior system is designed to adopt 1-gallon pots. This is because external green walls require more growing media to protect the roots of the plants.
As you can see in the webinar, all plants remain inside their standard containers. We don't move them or re-plant them inside the trays which are very amazing and very cost-effective. There will be another webinar about GSky installation, in our 1st webinar we briefly describe system components, then we highlight GSky Versa Walls features.
By the end of the webinar, you will learn why GSky Green Walls can guarantee up to 27 points on LEED. GSky Green walls can also be considered for certificates like BREEAM and GSAS. We will have a special webinar about Green Walls and LEED by October or, I’ll keep you all informed about that.
In the next webinars, we will talk about the design and plant selection of GSky Versa Walls and the installation and maintenance of these systems.
