This area includes stainless steel staples, eyelets, eye bolts and other screw eyes. Ground or earth anchors complete this part of the assortment. Here you will find the respective product sheets of the "Eyelet screws" article range. FassadenGrün recommends and sells eyelet screws especially for Easy kits and for some other special cases.
Eyelets certainly are the oldest form of the fastening of growing wires. FassadenGrün uses eyelet bolts primarily with the so-called "Easy kits". If you put fastening systems together yourself, you can find information here on this page about all the different articles of this sortiment group therefore about staples, eyebolts, and ground anchors. You can learn below what distinguishes standard eyelet bolts of FassadenGrün as compared with others. >>> Price list.
High-grade steel staples or loops EK 02550 and EK 03510 are used for the guidance of wire and wire-cable on wood posts, pergolas, at free standing growing trestles and at lattices. They serve primarily as an intermediate bracket, because there smaller loads arise as to the end supports, where growth wires are attached. The stronger nail staples KN 04055 are also for intermediate supports, if necessary, also suitable for end supports, with dowel even on stonewalls and regular walls. If wall distance is required, -the wires must not touch the wall-, protruding eyelets are required. The circular hook nail NA 04060 produces a bridge to these elements, it allows wall distance as opposed to staples and staple nails already mentioned.
Eyebolts have a shaft with a 'wood thread' and are thus suitable for plastic plugs or direct mounting in wood. First, there is a delicate variant WH 06060 - it is suitable for very low loads, as intermediate holder with longer ropes and if small holes are desired. In particular the standard eyelets for easy kits "Basic" WH 07080 is then taken. The eye-bolt WH 08080 again is a representative variant of WH 07080. Also WH 06061 is a 'decorative'-eyelet, but rather best for small loads.
Ring bolts have metric threads ('machine thread'), a collar and a back plate for through-hole mounting, for example to balcony panels and fences. You can also screw into metal square pipe (poles). FassadenGrün sells a small version WM 06030 and a larger WM 08080. The latter is also used at walls for connections loaded in axial direction (cable system 0040) and then bonded.
Ring eye screws are particularly strong eyelet bolts with of M10 threads and permit more wall distance than the other elements (6 -8 cm instead of only 1 -3 cm). The standard version WH 10150 is in some medium-sized 'classic' - kits used to complement cross holders, if deflection points are required. As a long version the wall eye WH 10180 is available. For special cases there are WM 10080 (thin walled concrete) and WM 10100.
Earth anchors EA 12800 are virtually eyelet bolts which are screwed into the soil. Cables can be led without touching the wall up and fastened to rafters and the like. The small earth anchor EA 10300 (also via link above) is conceived for low loads and special situations.
Compared to clotheslines, see graphic, the strengths of wire ropes ("F") don't work in axis direction, but crossways to this. The eyelets are exposed not to tensile loads but to buckling loads. The critical range with a so-called clothesline hook is the screw connection/dowelling (yellow), if it gives way, the eyelet is pulled out. With an eye-bolt, as a growing aid support the critical area is the entry point to the wall, here the eyebolt can fold over and then in some cases also pull out due to 'mis-alignment'.
Depending on fastening system and the strain resulting from it, different requirements arise: An axially loaded eyebolt ('clothesline hook' - see above) must be anchored particularly in a strong way. Therefore, with FassadenGrün, such loops are cemented or bonded as in wire rope system 0040. A transversely loaded eyelet in turn must not bend under load. The shaft must be as thick as possible, and used with suitable collar dowels, as a guide sleeve, at the same time it may have only a limited distance of the wall (lever arm). In this regard, please observe details the maximum wire rope diameter on the product sheet on individual eyelets.
Standard eyelets of FassadenGrün like WH 07080 (for simple kits) have a thick shaft. They are manufactured from very thick single strand wire/cable (more weight) and the thread is intricately milled. Both entail a higher price. For aesthetic reasons, all eyelets of FassadenGrün also have a small eye hole in relation to the entire screw.
