Construction Styles in Comparison

All wire rope trellis systems from FassadenGrün are available in various versions-- "construction styles." View the chart below to get a profile for each construction style, each of which can be ordered as a pre-assembled kit (to which you can add or adjust as needed). Click on one of these kits/styles for further information). You can also put together your own personal kit via our section on individual parts (for example, with mounts of your choosing, etc..) Read on in the following subpages, and if you need help at any time, please feel free to contact us.

Criteria for choosing a construction style:

For smaller and larger heights, heavier loads, greening in public areas (where children play sports or where vandalism may be an issue), and when indicated with specific climbing plants, our heavy and massive climbing elements/systems are highly recommended and sometimes required. Otherwise, medium or easy elements/systems almost always suffice; easy and light systems can only tolerate minor loads. Cable diameters of 2 or 3 mm (found in easy, light, and medium kits) are less expensive, more flexible, and don't require holders big enough to fit 4 mm cable (as with our massive and heavy versions).
