FassadenGrün's wire rope technology of high-grade stainless steel is classified into 54 cable trellis systems, each of which is available in five versions- "construction styles/kits." Our Heavy Style is the fourth variant and is characterised mainly by the gentle, expansion pressure-free mounting (attaches via adhesive bonding rather than with anchors/plugs), which makes it ideal for brittle masonry / highly porous brick and for sensitive edge areas of walls. You can order pre-assembled heavy kits or assemble your own in our online shop.
affordable due to threaded shaft
wire guided with "wire holders"
for medium to heavy loads
for wall distances of 7-8 cm (also 13 cm)
for 4 mm wire-cable
stainless steel A2 304 (V2A), wire rope A4 316 (V4A)
easy to install and assemble, most drilling diameters 16 mm
In our heavy style, all wall mounts are firmly connected to the wire rope and attached to the facade. The rope is 'decoupled' into several sections; each load is evenly distributed between the end and intermediate supports/mounts. Shock loads are absorbed dynamically via the elastic deflection of the supports. If an overload does occur, the wire rope can slide in the clamp head of the cross mount and be re-tensioned.
Instructions for assembling Heavy Kits can be followed with the diagrams on the page of each respective cable system. Also, please make sure that you are equipped with all the necessary tools for assembly.
The standard anchor for our heavy system is the WM 12191 stainless steel trellis fitting with a strong M12 threaded shank, gasket, and crosshead, sieve sleeves and composite mortar (anchor then not detachable from wall, 7 cm wall distance). This technique (the use of adhesive mortar instead of expansion anchors) is particularly suitable for sensitive walls, like hollow masonry (perforated brick- 'Poroton,' etc..), and generally where a bonding of the holder is desired. Other mounts/anchors are possible if you put together a kit yourself; the choice depends then on the wall type.
WM 12227 for increased wall distances up to 13 cm
WM 12XX8 for many Exterior Insulation Systems with higher loads and greater wall distance
Wire rope technology in a "heavy construction"/Heavy Kit is versatile in its application, especially in the professional area, at higher altitudes, with heavier loads, with increased wall distance, in public spaces, and with such climbing plants where the heavy version is recommended. Please use the general tips, when required, for planning.
