Nature + Science + Innovation
The Junglefy Breathing Wall* is an active, modular green wall system,
scientifically proven to accelerate the removal of air pollutants faster than any
other plant-based system on the market. It also acts as a sound barrier, improving
acoustics while cooling the surrounding air temperature, resulting in energy
efficiency and reduced air conditioning costs.

How does it work?
The Junglefy Breathing Wall is an advanced green wall system using active ventilation to pull air through the module and over the leaves and growing medium. This active ventilation provides a ‘super charged’ process of reducing CO2 levels, eliminating air pollutants, and cooling and humidifying indoor air.
One Junglefy Breathing Wall module can clean a vastly greater volume of air than one traditional green wall module, or one pot plant. The research results of the Junglefy Breathing Wall demonstrated that “to achieve the same results, one would need hundreds and hundreds of pot plants, or a much larger traditional green wall” as Dr Torpy says.
