Variant 01 - Installing directly into the wall coverings

The first of eight options to attach wire rope accessories to special Facades is the insertion of small holders into the outer shell. The solution is simple and very flexible, as attachments can be installed anywhere on a wall panel. Moreover, it is extremely inexpensive because only the simplest elements are used. Standard kits are unfortunately usually excluded, but special elements can be attached. Details can be found on this page.

Area of application

This variant is suitable for all coverings listed under special facades, with the exception of shingles and sheet metal. However, the wall thickness should be at least 18 - 22 mm; for thinner cross sections, variant 02 should be preferred. The achievable wall spacing’s are usually only 1 - 2 cm, also the load capacity is rather low. This solution is particularly suitable for intermediate supports, guides or deflection points for small cable systems. For the end fixtures, other of the six variants are recommended, unless only a thin wire rope (2 mm) is used anyway. An exception is metal quadrangle - see below.

Anchor for wall claddings

For direct attachment in a cladding, very small elements of simple construction are used. In the case of eyelets with wood threads, it may be useful to install the recommended anchors, which is then a fastening according to variant 02 because of the knotting in the cavity. What is also important is the fact that the respective wall covering must be more rigidly fastened than the load which is to be absorbed by the cable system, which is often under-protected! If necessary, the corresponding area must be reinforced and stiffened with additional screws or nails.

Easy construction

Most simple wire rope accessories such as staples, staple nails and eyelet nails are used, which corresponds to the construction 'mini'. For cross-sections from 22 to 24 mm, the 'Basic-S' design is also suitable. More powerful eyelets such as 'Basic' can be used if the wall thickness is 40 mm, e.g. for block house (see photo). WM 06030 can also be used for four-sided support pipes (tubes, bars).

Light construction

Standard kits with WM 06093 incl. Anchors (dowel) can be used with cross sections from 30 - 35 mm. Rivet nuts M6 are used in thick, profiled sheet metal (trapezoidal sheets).

Medium construction

Medium block kits 'Eco' can be used for block boards from approx. 35 mm, from approx. 40 mm also 'Premium', both without anchors directly screwed into the wood. For the metal quadrant the cross holder WM 10081 (without brass dowel) can be used, an internal thread M10 is cut into the pipe or a blind rivet nut is used. In each case, the parameters for wall spacing, loadability, etc., which are customary for medium kits, are then used. Is achieved. In very strong trapezoidal cores, cross brackets WM 08133 can be used without plastic dowels, but blind rivet nuts M8 are used. However, the load-bearing capacity may then be slightly reduced. The cross-holders may be pre-stressed with a thinner cable (1.8 mm instead of 3 mm).

Due to the additional loads, the wooden formwork must be re-nailed / screwed before the ropes are installed. With such a load on 'pull-out' of the screw also cavity fastening with dowel (variant 02) is advised.
