Concrete Columns and Masts

This page refers to "Concrete walls", it's about massive columns made of concrete, with round or angular cross-sections. Growing systems can be often fastened to them. For poles or masts, it becomes difficult because they contain a lot of rebar. Alternatives include special tie-down straps, the adhering of plants by means of binding materials or the use of "self-climbing plants". In the area of "Ideas" under "Columns" and "Poles" to learn more.

Concrete Columns

Concrete pillars "support" or carry a "load". They consist mostly of very pressure-resistant concrete that provides resistance when drilling. It will be more difficult to work with if they are also covered with insulation, this is found out by tapping and listening for the distinctive or the corresponding sounds.

Concrete Poles

Concrete poles are self-supporting, supporting a light, a sign, decorations, or other things. Here the iron inside is not only in a loose "basket" style, but as relatively dense iron wreaths next to each other. Encountering reinforcement when drilling often cannot be avoided. Here, depending on the expected amount of reinforced steel , one should consider whether drilling a hole for the fitting of climbing aids would be useful, effective, and safe.

Appropriate construction methods

From the FassadenGrün assortment, all standard kits are suitable for supports. And in case of doubt, however, and especially for masts the best solution of all is middle ' Classic ' kits, however, divergently with cross holder WM 10081 are suited together with brass rawl plugs because drilling and connecting happen here beyond the armoured layer. Nevertheless, the sealing must be flawless, so that no humidity penetrates into the armouring iron.

With very thin round pillars there can be problems with the cover plates of the cross-holder who no longer adapt or fit to the small radius sufficiently and may need to be formed accordingly.
