This sub-topic in 'exposed masonry' is about espalier techniques on bonded, flat stones like tiles, clinker-closers etc.. Especially modern clinker walls are often made of a completely different building materials and only show the outside glued clinker plates. On this page you can see examples of facades along with tips for mounting.
Mostly there are glazed or unglazed tiles for clinker-closers or natural stone plates. All these facing bricks are very flat and are attached by adhesive or mortar. The substrate is usually a less valuable masonry or even a thermal insulation. Because the outer, higher quality panels are flat, and not far into the depth of the wall, in this way they can be created at reasonable cost for a high-quality facades.
Decisive for the attachment of cable systems or trellises here is always the presence of the facade layer underneath, please check back if necessary, under plaster masonry. If it is sound, except for the “Massive” kits, all kits from FassadenGrün can be used, in principle. In contrast, if insulation is under the surface, installing trellis ssystems is sometimes not possible.
It is important that it is carefully drilled (no impact hammer drilling) and secured only in the joints. The hole in the facade panels should possibly be slightly larger than the dowel diameter, so that the shaft of the holder is not suppressed even when there is subsequent deflection under greening loads against the sensitive borehole of tiles or clinker-closers. The wire ropes should be tensioned less than taut. Thus, cracks are prevented. Also the pressure of cover disks should be slightly less, that is, the holders are not tensioned extremely hard against the wall.
For drilling, we recommend universal drill UB 77777.
