Field conditions occasionally require modifications on site to planted green wall panels. The advantage of using the GLTi metal panel system is that it easily allows field modification. Sometimes unexpected these conditions don’t necessarily have to stop the progress of the job. Here are some of our methods for customization we have used in the field. For pipe and electrical fixture penetrations these aluminum boxes were fabricated in our shop from .090 aluminum sheet.
