Concrete Facades

Bellow the overview of Concrete Walls, is our guide to the various concrete surfaces and what wire trellises correspond best to each. Kits from FassadenGrün are almost always suitable, the few exceptions primarily being due to insufficient wall thickness (troubleshooting information is provided through the link; thin concrete walls.) Read through our descriptions of each surface to find out what will work best for you. Problems can occur when drilling so please take the time to read through our guidance provided in the link.


Wall Thickness (Concrete)

Concrete facades of unheated buildings such as carparks and garages, are sufficiently thick for all of our trellis fixtures however, heated buildings are often built with external wall insulation, which means the surface to which you will attach your trellis will be considerably thinner. If this is the case then, prior to the selection of wire rope accessories, the thickness of the external wall 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".
