Which support to use for an artificial plant wall ?

Adapt your installation methodology according to the chosen support (wooden wall, stone, wire mesh structure...). The structure of Exelgreen artificial walls has been designed to be installed indoors or outdoors. If you are planning to install your artificial wall on a fence or a grid, use clamps or cable clamps for a solid and quick installation. The accessories are usually sold with your green wall.

When installing on an interior wall, use appropriate screws to avoid damaging the surface as you would have done for example to hang a picture in your living room. The number of fasteners should be adapted according to the weight of the wall, the model can vary from 3 to 5 kg per square meter.

For surfaces requiring a more resistant fixing such as a stone wall, we recommend you use adapted nails and hammer the plates to the wall to fix them with a small hammer.

Artificial hedges can be used for many reasons such as :

- Decorate and create an authentictrendy and unique living space

How to attach my artificial plant wall to a wall ?

First, to hang your artificial foliage, start by clipping the plates together to form a square.

Then, staple the first square to the support. Repeat the operation as many times as necessary depending on the surface to cover.

Respect the direction of the installation for an optimized result.

To finish, you can put back in shape your artificial plant walls by passing your hand inside and replacing the artificial plants if needed.

If the surface of your ornamental project is important, you can create a plan beforehand and draw the diagram of your installation. This will allow you to order the exact number of plates needed, to have a global vision of your project and to order all the required accessories.
