Watch these three short videos from Cool Towns partners GreenBlue Urban and SIOEN Industries which feature innovative solutions to counter the effects of heatstress.
GreenBlue’s sustainable urban drainage system – ArborFlow – has been developed as an effective and environmentally robust means of managing surface water run-off. Ideal for use in urban areas where space is at a premium, ArborFlow markedly reduces the velocity and flow rate of surface water run-off in urban areas. Designed for a given catchment area it can contribute towards meeting the discharge rates allowed and set by regulatory authorities.
SIOEN’S GreenTecStyle® green walls combine nature and technology in a smart way. An engineered composite made out of fleeces, grids and tarpauline provides a habitat for plants an insects where normally no greenery would survive. The light weight structure ensures an ergonomic solution and allows fast installation.
SIOEN’s Architectural Membranes: Shade and cooling on sunny and hot days, shelter on a rainy day, protection on windy days. Protecting people and their possessions from the elements is probably the first application you think of when you hear “Tensile Architecture”.
