FassadenGruen has 54 Wire Rope Systems each classified into five construction styles/kits. The “Medium construction style/kit” offers a medium to high standard in all parameters and is 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 into kits yourself.
>>> Price list
a new and economical, slender alternative, ecological due to less material and energy usage
significantly lower price level
for 3 mm wire rope, light and occasionally medium loads
wall distance 5 cm
sufficient stability. Reducing the distance between the cross mounts results in higher load capacity (approx. 1 meter apart)
stainless steel AISI 304, wire rope AISI 316
metric threaded M8 and wood thread W7
standard cross mount WH 08111
no special mount for insulation or similarly difficult surfaces
only cross mounts, no combination with eyelet screws possible
only 2 wire ropes can be fixed in the cross head, making some system (5060) unsuitable
The Medium Kit/style “Eco” is suitable for private and semi-public areas. The kits are compatible with grapevines and many other climbing plants, sometimes even for vigorously growing roses. Eco Kits are an inexpensive alternative where medium wall distances and lighter plants such as clematis and annuals-- but also hops, honeysuckle and potted 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 similar stability to the Medium “classic” Kits. Also, the desire for reduced drilling diameter and lower drilling depth can be a decisive factor in choosing this Kit.
When assembling in higher areas with heavier loads, or in public areas (due to vandalism), one should definitely use a Heavy or Massive Kit/construction style. Please also view the section on Planning for more general information on planning a system.
