Double Glazing and Aluminum

As a high-end green home developer, Viridior aims to use only the best quality supplies for every area of our homes. We feel that two important aspects are the glass and aluminium components which form part of both internal and external areas of the home. These components must meet very high standards and also contribute to our insulation strategy in order to ensure eco-friendly benefits throughout.

Photo-voltaic Electricity

An important part of green living and eco-friendly homes is the ability to run your home on as little grid electricity as possible. Viridior makes use of an optional Photo-voltaic solar system to generate and store large amounts of electricity for off-grid home usage. Ideally, the home should run on solar electricity most of the time; but an automatic switchover to conventional grid power is initiated if this natural source of electricity is depleted.

But Viridior has gone one step further and increased the thickness of the floor’s concrete layer so as to maximise the effectiveness of the Hydronics radiant heating and cooling system. Let’s see why we think this will be one of the most sought after green homes in Gauteng.
