Create natural shading with trellis components from 3D Warehouse

SketchUp’s geo-location and shadow tools make it easy to investigate sun control options that affect building energy consumption, daylighting and overall environmental impact. Building designers increasingly consider green building facades comprised of trellis systems with appropriate plants as a natural shading option. Well designed trellis systems can reduce cooling loads, create privacy screens that also look great and create lush environments that add to building aesthetics.

Modular trellis system

For over 20 years, greenscreen® has been providing an innovative modular trellis system for adding vertical landscape elements to any design. The basic building block for greenscreen® is a modular panel that can be used for endless variations of shapes and applications, including green walls, freestanding fences, horizontal shade structures, unique column forms and planter adaptations. With over 7,000 project examples, these combinations for building and landscape design are now common elements all over the world.
