VersiWall® FR

What is VersiWall® FR

VersiWall® FR is a fire-resistant modular composite green wall system which gives architects and builders a cost-effective solution for urban greenery. It uses a combination of materials that mitigates the issue of fire safety and allows the elegant articulation of attractive living walls anywhere.

VersiWall® FR consists of a backing plate and fire-resistant planting media and skin. Space for the integration of a neatly concealed automated irrigation and drainage system is provided for according to the requirements of your project.

VersiWall® FR provides a good amount of flexibility as the system is able to conform to curves on walls and be easily modified to any shape or size required for the design of the green wall. This is regardless of whether if it is pre-planted at the nursery or planted directly on-site.

VersiWall® FR offers unlimited possibilities for different combinations of plant arrangements on-site to create exquisite vertical gardens. The variations available for plant arrangements on-site also means that last minute changes are easily made without costly and time-consuming delays and material wastage.

VGP FR is a fire-resistant green wall system, and is the result of extensive research and development by Elmich to meet fire safety regulations for use of plastics in building construction. The SCDF* fire safety requirements stipulate that only certified plastics can be used for building interiors. VGP FR is made from a special blend of fire-resistant materials that will not burn, release toxic emissions or smoke when a fire is present. In a series of rigorous fire tests by an independent laboratory, VGP FR met the stringent fire safety requirements. *Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF)
