Concrete Facades

In this first subsection of the concrete walls umbrella, you will find information about different concrete facades and their suitable wire rope accessories. FassadenGruen kits are almost always compatible with concrete, the few exceptions primarily being due to insufficient wall thickness, which is not relevant to this section. Problems can also occur during drilling, so please note the information on drilling provided in the link.

Wall Thickness (Concrete)

Concrete facades are sufficiently thick for every fixture in unheated buildings such as park houses and garages. It is different in heated buildings as they often have some kind of external insulation shell, also made of concrete, behind which lies an insulating layer over the second, inner concrete wall. If this is the case then, prior to the selection of wire rope accessories, the thickness of the external, concrete shell should be determined.

Very thin concrete walls; anything under 8cm, should be considered separately. And as a side note, concrete facades are often seen un-favorably as ugly or crude, however, they can be greatly improved by painting or plastering.



Appropriate construction methods

Essentially all 5 construction styles are compatible with our standard fixtures. With Middle 'Classic' kits, as with Heavy and Massive, problems can occur with any wall density that only slightly surpasses 8cm. With heavy kits, shorter holder WM 12161 can be stuck together, alternatively sieve shells are not necessary. If in doubt, know that these buildings are treated like "thin walled concrete".
