Mobilane® Green Screens used in London primary school to combat air pollution

Mobilane were chosen by the London Borough of Lambeth to look at options to combat air pollution at a Lambeth school. With their Mobilane® Green Screen ready made option as the perfect solution, Paul Garlick, Mobilane UK National Business Manager put them in touch with one of their network of installers, The Plantman Limited, to talk them through their plans.

Children and staff from the school celebrated the completion of the green screen in June 2017 as part of Lambeth’s Clean Air Week.

Assessing the site, the school’s air quality aims and the best green solution for the client, the project took shape. The installation – 31 screens at 2.2 metres high, each section 1.2 metres wide – was delivered and brought to life at the end of May 2017.

Taking just one day to install, it was a straightforward execution and resulted in a finished living wall of 41 metres in total length.

Hedera Helix Woerner provides the density and foliage needed, giving an instant burst of leaf colour and volume. Darren Stobbart of The Plantman Limited said he “was impressed with the ivy quality of the Mobilane Green Screen” adding that its “visual impact and density were the key components in the stunning end result.”

Knowing that the play area is flanked by a secure, natural screen gives not only the air pollution reduction the school and community were seeking, but a private, robust and beautiful backdrop to the children’s school time.

Councillor Jennifer Brathwaite, Lambeth Cabinet Member for Environment and Housing, also praised the impact the green screen was having, not only on air quality and aesthetics, but in reducing the traffic noise and ensuring total privacy – thoughts echoed by the school management, children and parents.
