Fire safety of the Cloud Garden plant walls and facades
Fire safety of green plant walls and green facades is important within the Building Decree. Cloud Garden has fire-safe and fire-retardant vertical gardens.

Fire safety is one of the themes that is taken into account to a greater or lesser extent when designing a building. Fire safety requirements have long been a topic in the legislation and regulations for designing a building, including the Building Decree 2021.
Reducing smoke development, ensuring that people get outside quickly in the event of a fire and the use of materials that are fire-retardant are aspects that can be used to score points.
Fire retardant effect of
Our metal products, manufactured in the Netherlands, are strong examples when it comes to fire-retardant properties. The metal falls under Fire Class A and is therefore not flammable. Only at +- 450 °C does the metal slowly start to weaken. Only at 600 °C does the steel construction deform and lose its strength.
Fire safety metal specifications:
Fire class A, non-flammable
From ± 450°C material becomes weaker
Material becomes softer from 550°C
From 10 minutes at 600°C the construction deforms (no more strength)
A green wall made of plastic therefore has a much higher flammability than a green plant wall made of metal.
EFIX system for walls and facades tested by Efectis.
Cloud Garden's green plant wall and facade system, which is especially suitable for large-scale green projects, has been tested by Efectis for fire safety. This made it clear that Cloud Garden's vertical gardens have very high fire safety.
Our complete green plant wall & facade system, including plants, complies with fire safety certificate B-s1, d0. All materials in the system have been selected for their fire-resistant properties. In addition, the green facade stores approximately 35 liters of water, which serves as an extra protective buffer.
