Project type Refurbishment
Services provided Product / system manufacture

Year completed 2015
Project location Outside the UK
Client Ji Hotel Xiamen
Products used VersiWall® GM - 2368 sq/ft (ft²) green living wall
 
 

Context

Hy-Tex supplied its VersiWall® GM product for a 6m-high living wall installed on JI Hotel Xiamen, Fuijan, China.

Pilaster mounting rails were bolted directly to the wall to facilitate firm and secure anchorage of the VersiWall® GM modules to the wall. Anti-lift arms inserted between the modules provided added security by locking the modules to the mounted pilaster rails.

Outcome

The living wall improves ambient air quality and keeps the hotel building cooler in summer and warmer in winter. It can also withstand wind uplift from various directions up to 110 km/h.

The VersiWall® was able to withstand a super typhoon that hit the Chinese province of Fujian in 2016. With a wind speed of around 170 km/h, the typhoon 'Meranti' made landfall in Xiamen City, Fujian, bringing heavy showers and causing major disruptions to the electricity and water supplies. The typhoon affected more than 3.2 million homes located in the region. However, the VersiWall® GM green wall at the JI Hotel Xiamen passed the real test of nature with flying colours.
