Medium Kits „Eco“

FassadenGruen has 54 Wire Rope Systems each classified into five construction styles. The “Medium construction styles” offer a medium to high standard in all parameters and are also divided into 3 versions (Eco, Classic and Premium). On this page we have the “Eco” version, which is especially “eco”nomical. Please use the comparison page. You can buy wire rope systems assembled as kits, but also you may supplement, or assemble all the items in the online shop to kits yourself.

  • Standard cross mount WH 08111

  • No special mount for insulation or similarly difficult surfaces.

Area of application

The medium style “Eco” is suitable for private and part.-public areas. They kits are fitting for grapevines and many other climbing plants. Sometimes even for vigorously growing Roses. Eco kits are an inexpensive alternative were medium wall distances and lighter plants such as Clematis and annuals but also hops, honeysuckle and pot plants are in question. If you reduce the span between the cross mounts from say 1.5 m to 1.0 m, the Eco kits can boast the similar stability as the medium “classic” version. Also the wish for reduced drilling diameter and less drilling depth can be decisive.

When assembling in higher areas with heavier loads, or in public areas (due to vandalism) one should definitely use a Heavy or Massive construction style. Please also view the page Planning for more general information on planning a system.

Wall mount / Surfaces

Eco kits are suitable for almost any surface, especially for arbors, pergolas and wooden structures (then without plug). Eco kits solely include the cross mount WH 08111 with plug.


Instructions on how to install medium kits can be found in the section "Wire rope systems -->Installation". Please clarify if you need any tools!

Growth aid Clematis
Wire rope system 5020 modified. Wooden shack with cladding and lateral laths. The growing aid for slow climbing clematis needs to provide sufficient wall distance and sturdiness, which is why the medium style was chosen and not the light construction.
Wire support for Grapes
2 x system 1030 “Eco” on concrete supports for grapevines. In this case drill diameter and drill depth needed to be kept small.
Holder for climbing support
Climbing support made of stainless steel
Wire rope holder WH 08111 with grapevine
Grapevine with growing aid
Wire rope system 3050 modified, grape vine. In this case, the Eco kit is sufficient, due to the spacing between the mounts (approx. 1 m)
Steel cable climbing aid for Peaches
Growing aid 4060 modified. Eco kit are even suitable for espalier fruit, in this case peach. Again the span between the cross mounts needs to be reduced to about 1 m to make it sturdy enough.
