Benefits of plants

You don't need to be an environmental psychologist to see how attractive plants are. You just need to dig a little bit deeper underneath their beauty to discover that the aesthetic advantages for you indoor spaces are only one of their benefits. Recent studies showed how indoor plants are good to buildings as well as to people in so many, delicate ways. Interior architecture plays a fundamental role in providing a pleasant and peaceful environment in which to move, work or relax.

Plants create a feeling of wellness

Plants help reducing stress

Instinctively, many of us know that being close to vegetation makes us feel more comfortable with our surroundings. When we have plants around us, we feel less stressful. Buildings are more silent and relaxed but, at the same time, they become more stimulating and interesting.
A substantial part of academic research has shown conclusively that the internal landscape has dramatic effects on the well-being of the building's occupants.
People in offices are more productive, take fewer sick days, make fewer mistakes and are happier when the internal landscape improves their environment. Patients in hospitals greatly benefit from being more in touch with nature.
There is also evidence that students get better results in improved learning environments. Make your work environment happier and more productive. Call us at 800-581-9946 or contact us online. To know more about the Ambius services, download now our eCapabilities brochure.

Plants help

Reducing background noise

For years, plants have been used to reduce the noise in busy roads. More recently, research has shown another advantage: indoor plants can help reduce background noise levels within buildings.
Our studies indicate that plants and their leaves absorb, diffuse or reflect background noise, making the environment more comfortable for occupants.
With our support, Peter Costa, a postgraduate student at South Bank University in London, has discovered that some plants are particularly suitable for absorbing high frequencies.
Plants absorb sound better in acoustically alive spaces, such as those with hard surfaces. Find out more about the advantages of the internal landscape.

Plants help

Improving air quality

Scientists agree on the fact that plants improve the internal environment and they are useful to fight the modern phenomenon of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS).
No specific cause of SBS has been yet identified - but poor air quality, excessive background noise and inadequate control of light and humidity are considered important factors.
Since plants have large surfaces and exchange gas and water with their surroundings, plants can help to mitigate some of these problems.
The specific benefits of indoor plants include:
1. Reducing carbon dioxide levels
2. Humidity increase
3. Reducing the levels of some polluting agents, such as benzene and nitrogen dioxide
4. Reducing the dust levels in the air 5. Keeping the air temperature lower

Our mission has always been clean air

we add green health to your office

During a whole day, from breakfast to dinner, we add ingest 3-4 kg of solid and liquid foods - but what we don’t realize is that this is nothing compared to the 9-14,000 liters of air we ingest, and it is the most important thing. Every breath is about 500 milliliter but we never think about the quality of this element.
Also, we don’t realize that we live indoors at least 85% of the time. However, the Green Habitat vertical gardens, the mobile planters, the decorative planters and the green dividers allow us, while stay inside a building, to obtain a more natural air quality, eliminating the fine dust, regulating the humidity, improving the acoustics. The optimal humidity rate would be around 45 to 60%.
Care must be taken to regulate the excessive moisture with the use of mosses and stabilized natural meadows, also using them as signaling devices, as well as for acoustic and sound-absorbing improvement. Thus, the respiratory tract will benefit and so will the sight, the psyche and the productivity and comfort for the employees and the customers.

HEALTH for our lungs

with humidity optimization

Inside indoors spaces, the air is almost always too dry, generally due to the conditioning of cold or hot air. Dust also increases germs and formaldehyde, and allergies become uncontrollable.
All Green Habitat products, with the help of nature, are designed and produced with the aim of improving work spaces, increasing comfort and giving a positive effect to the body and mind, regenerating the body.
We must defend ourselves from electronic equipment for electrostatic charges, especially from photocopiers that emit ozone, and electrosmog.
The oxygen is filtered and the volatile organic compounds are caught. With Green Habitat products, electricity and heating costs are also reduced by putting and maintaining the air in balance. The regularized humidity.

IMPROVEMENT OF ACOUSTICS in the environment

The acoustics of the whole environment improves the surfaces, making them harmonious and natural; it also reduces the annoying echo and improves the softness of the sound - especially the mosses and the natural lawn, in addition to the living green.

efficiency and REDUCTION OF heating and cooling COSTS

Energy efficiency and Green Habitat green walls - they can reach an average around 6 to 12% with the help of the external and internal systems patented by Green Habitat.

Against particulate

rimozione-polveri-sottili
Results obtained from university research at the Department of Agricultural Sciences and Engineering Faculty of Bologna. In rooms with Green Habitat green walls installed, the polluting dusts have decreased by 30% after four days from the installation. Fine particles are highly harmful to human health, as they penetrate the lungs and accumulate over time. Plants in green walls have shown their ability to reduce the particulate concentration and. therefore, their excellent air detoxifying properties. In this project, the Green Habitat walls have shown (as can be seen in the graphs), by comparing the concentration of particulate matter in rooms with and without green walls, that it is possible to appreciate the positive effect brought by the Green Habitat walls in just four days after planting. PM10 has decreased by 26% in rooms with green walls, while PM2.5 and PM1 have fallen by 69% and 65% respectively. In contrast, where there were no green walls, the particulate level remained unchanged for PM10 and PM1, while it is even increased by 14% for PM2.5.
The term particulate refers to all aero-suspended particles with dimensions smaller than 10μm (micrometers). Generally the most dangerous fine particles are of human origin such as tobacco smoke, car traffic, combustion processes, etc. Depending on the size, they can penetrate to different depths in the lungs. For this reason, PM2.5 and PM1 are generally the most dangerous compounds as they settle deep in the lungs, accumulating over time.

Against acoustic pollution and noise

The sound absorption analyzes showed an excellent propensity of the stabilized lawn (and, to a lesser extent of the green walls raised with Spathiphyllum with sphagnum substrate) to reduce the propagation of noise in closed environments. These frequencies are those caused by the buzz and the typical noises of crowded places. Sound insulation, on the other hand, has proven to be particularly effective at low frequencies 50-1000 Hz, generated for example by car traffic from outside homes or offices. For this reason, the structures tested may have a noteworthy benefit for the reduction of the sick building syndrome, improving the general health conditions of the human being.

Moreover, it regulates humidity

Plants in the internal environment regulate air humidity between 50-60%: ideal for human health. Conditions below 50% or above 70% could favor the onset of bacterial and viral diseases, as well as possible allergic reactions or respiratory infections.

REDUCES FORMALDEHYDE

Formaldehyde is a chemical used to treat wood, furniture, paper and it is found in paints and household products. Formaldehyde has been included in the list of potentially carcinogenic substances for several years. People exposed to high levels of formaldehyde have developed respiratory conditions such as asthma, cough and bronchitis, as well as the possible onset of tumors. The analyzes clearly showed how, having been bred with Spathiphyllum, the Green Habitat walls have removed the formaldehyde from the environment after only 10-15 days. The different types of lights have partly influenced the ability to open and close the stomata and thus absorb the dangerous pollutant.
