LivePanel is a panel that is alive, or in more descriptive words: it is a living wall. LivePanel is a system that is developed (and patented) by Mobilane a company that has several ways of turning your workspace or livingspace in something more green and healthy. Because a green environment is not only good for the environment and your status as a company but it is actually good for the well-being of your employees: when employees are happier, in a more comfortable space they automaticly become more productive which is good for the company they work for.
The LivePanel is a wall system that has various gutters and plant cassettes that are attached to the wall (if desired or needed there can also be a frame). The (unique) plant cassettes can be simply attached to the gutters and the cloth in the cassettes will come in contact with the water. The roots of the plants intertwine with the cloth and so a nice living wall is formed. And with the attachment of a water pump the water level can be kept constant
The LivePanel is suitable for use indoor and outdoor so there is always a way to make your building more green. When you have a certain type of plant you want, or one that is already heavily present you can ofcourse use those plants. But Mobilane is also able to make a plant selection or advise on a suitable plant mix for your use: there is a big difference for outdoor and indoor plants of course, but location of the wall can also be of influence, or the type of work that gets done in the surroundings. The people of Mobilane are ready to advise on the best plants for the situation.
Depending on the season and the plants that are used, the growing process takes at least twelve weeks, so do not expect an instant grown living wall.
