the fight for a healthier city life

Air pollution and urban heat islands are a major cause of stress, discomfort, and numerous diseases. This leads to permanent damage to your physical health and reduced mental well-being.
The urge to fight these issues is becoming more and more pressing every year, and decision-makers around the globe are in the race to try to find the perfect solution. For this reason, six highly ambitious entrepreneurs have decided to come together and create a modular green wall solution that can be easily implemented on existing and new walls with minimal maintenance needs.

reduce air pollution
& urban heat

Plants absorb harmful carbon emissions and the green wall modules reduce the heat. This improves the environment in your city and your home.

increase livability
instantly

Improved air quality leads to fewer health complaints, and cooled-down cities make your surroundings more pleasant. This occurs immediately after installing the Epiclay green wall.

improve health
& well-being

Numerous studies have shown that spending time in a green environment helps to reduce stress and anxiety, ultimately calming your mind and allowing you to work more effectively.

greening in a
space-efficent way

Other solutions often go at the expense of pedestrians, parking spaces, or cycling lanes. Therefore, green walls are a more efficient way to bring nature closer to you.

modular

The modularity of Epiclay's green wall solution allows as much flexibility as possible. Thus, the modules can be easily placed onto most existing and new walls.

low maintenance

The special mixtures of plants do not require frequent watering, and each module can be replaced easily, resulting in lower maintenance costs and time.

cooling effect

Epiclay’s green walls provide cooling to the building and the environment in two ways: by the plants and the modules themselves.

nature-based

The design of the green wall modules is inspired by nature, and each one is carefully crafted with natural materials.

bio-receptive

The use of natural materials makes the modules bio-receptive, which means that they can be disposed of without further harming the environment.

soil-free

The plants on the green wall modules do not require soil to grow and thrive. This makes Epiclay’s solution more light-weight, and it minimizes the risk of contamination.

the more green modules, the greater the impact
