Fence panels used as growing aids

FassadenGrün sells small and medium-sized growing aids made of stainless steel. For larger wall surfaces, fence panels and mesh grids are a better option. They can be used as an inexpensive climbing aid for protection walls, noise barriers, car parkings and other buildings. For more examples, read the page about parking garages. The next chapter will deal with "modular trellises"

Fence panels

Fence panels are well suited to build growing aids for climbing plants on facades. They are otherwise used for fences and are made of galvanized steel. Concrete reinforcement mats can also be used, they are very cost effective. Side grids of gabion lattices can be purchased individually and used as trellis. They're mostly made of galvanized steel but can sometimes be found in stainless steel - because of the narrow mesh they are a little more expensive. Architects must decide for each case if a certain type of grid or mesh is suitable as a trellis! Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator

Please consider the following:

Fence panels mounted on facades should not be climbable for safety reasons. This can also be achieved by planting thorny plants at their base. The trellises should not have any protruding ends if possible, to prevent injuries.

Supply sources

FassadenGrün does not sell fence panels or mesh grids, but you'll easily find vendor by browsing with your favorite search engine. If the wires are smaller than 8 mm, you can use our wall mounts to install them on the façade.

Double bar fence panels are very stiff and can be used as trellises for climbing plants.
