GRC Planter Range from Satu Bumi
Fytogreens range of Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC), supplied by Satu Bumi, provide clients with a superior quality GRC planter ideal for high quality precast concrete planters projects.
Thinner & Lighter - GRC is essentially concrete but differs through the addition of alkaline resistant glass fibres that provide significant additional flexural and tensile strength. Planters can be made significantly thinner than traditional cast concrete planters with the same or greater strength.
Durable & Versatile - Resistance to weather, water permeability, chemicals and fire. Glassfibre reinforced concrete does not readily burn or emit smoke when exposed to fire which makes GRC particularly suitable for high-rise buildings where fire performance requirements are critical. GRC Offers an unrivalled versatility;
it can reproduce almost any small or large product design and can be finished in a wide variety of textures and colours.
• Fire Compliant to AS1530.1
• Lifting Lugs Certificated to 500kg
• Innovative H-Shape Design Featuring Hidden Drainage Voids
• Standard & Bespoke Sizes Available
Wicking Planter Boxes
Consistent moisture is key, and in hot, windy, elevated locations, it can be a challenge. Fytogreen have created simple solution, self-watering or ‘wicking’ planter boxes, where a reservoir of water is contained in the base. The soil acts as a ‘wick’ drawing the water up into the root zone of the plants ensuring moisture is available, whenever they need it.
Wicking planter boxes are a unique and increasingly popular way to have commercial trees and plants without the hassle of daily watering. Our self-contained planter boxes with built-in reservoirs supply water from the bottom up.
The wick works through capillary action – When one end of the wick is saturated and the other end is dry, it creates a moisture gradient. As the plants use the moisture in the soil,the moisture gradient drives moisture through the wick into the soil.
• Self Watering and Water efficient
• No drainage outlet required
• Large Species Range
Pot in Pot
Fytogreen’s pot-in-pot technique is a great way to make caring for the office plant as easy as pot in, pot out! This technique allows Fytogreen to develop easy greening, by allowing the maintenance team to change out plants throughout the year and provide the availability of different plants from one year to the next as it only requires lifting out a pot and putting in a new one.
• Have better control over temperature, fertilizer, and water.
• Keep blooms going all year by changing plants.
• Can switch out plants instead of installing grow lights.
