Light Kits

FassadenGrün's trellises are made of high-grade stainless steel wire classified into 54 wire rope systems; each wire rope system is available in five different styles/kits. The 'light' construction style/kit described here is the second of five variations. It boasts a delicate look and only needs very small drill holes. You can buy cable systems assembled as 'light kits,' but you may also supplement or assemble all the items in the online shop shop yourself.

In this lightweight wire rope technique, all wall brackets are firmly connected with the (wire) rope and can be fixed to the wall. The rope is 'decoupled' into multiple sections; each load is divided equally amongst the final and intermediate supports. Shock loads are absorbed dynamically via the elastic deflection of the supports. If there is an overload, the ropes can slide inside the clamp head of the cross holder and be re-tensioned.

Installation of Light Wire Rope Technology

In the section "Wire Rope Systems: Installation," one can find instructions for mounting light kits. Please check to see if you need tools!

Wall Mount / Surface

Light Kits always contain the cross mount WM 06093 from Inox or stainless steel with a delicate 6 mm shaft, seal, and cross head. They are suitable for almost any type of wall-- especially for wall joints, thin-walled concrete garages, solid wood, and facades with special cladding and trim-- but not for insulation.

Area of Application

Wire technology in this Light Kit (lightweight construction) is suitable for annual climbing vines, hops, clematis, honeysuckle, as well as weak and vigorous roses. It is also suitable for almost all climbing plants when they are growing in pots and their growing power is thus limited. Light trellis systems are significantly more stable if the mounts are at a shorter distance to each other (all 50-75 cm). The area of application comes close to the Medium style (Kit) construction approach. Light Kits are designed for the private/home sector. Please consult the general instructions in the Planning section, if necessary.
