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.
>>> 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 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.
