FassadenGrün sells small and medium-sized climbing aids made of stainless steel. But for larger areas and longer wall surfaces, wire mesh panels (often used in making metal fences) and metal mesh grids are a better option. They can be used as an inexpensive climbing aid for retaining walls, noise barriers, parking garages, and other buildings. Further examples can be found in the section on parking garages. The next chapter will deal with "modular trellises."
Metal 'mesh panels' (or mesh grids) are well suited to build climbing aids for plants on facades. They are otherwise used for fences and partitions and are made of hot-dipped galvanized steel. Concrete reinforcement mats can also be used; these are very cost effective. Side grids of gabion lattices can be purchased individually and used as a 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 on a case-by-case basis which type of grid or wire mesh is best suited as a trellis!
FassadenGrün itself does not sell wire mesh panels or mesh grids, but you'll easily find suppliers by browsing with your favorite search engine (fence system suppliers, such as Betafence, Wire Driller, Gawron, or Legi). If the wire diameters are 8 mm or smaller, you can use our wall mounts to install them on the façade.
