Our Eco wire rope system is one of 3 sub-variants of our Medium construction style. It is particularly 'eco'nomical. You can order pre-assembled medium eco kits or assemble your own in our online shop.
streamlined and attractive
significantly lower price mark
for 3 mm wire rope and light to medium loads
wall distance: 5 cm
sufficient stability; reducing the distance between cross mounts increases the load capacity (at least 1 metre apart)
stainless steel AISI 304, wire rope AISI 316
metric thread M8, rear wood thread W7
standard mount WH 08111
no special mounts for insulation or other difficult surfaces
only cross mounts, no combination with eyelet screws possible
up to 2 wire ropes can be fixed in the cross head, making some systems (5060) unsuitable
Our Medium Eco variant is recommended for use in private and semi-public areas, for trellising grapevines and many other climbing plants, sometimes even for vigorously growing roses. Eco systems are an inexpensive alternative when a medium-range wall distance is desired but with only weaker climbing plants like clematis and annuals, hops, honeysuckle and potted plants. If you reduce the span between the cross mounts from, say 1.5 m to 1.0 m, then the Eco guarantees comparable stability to the Classic Medium variant. Also, the desire for reduced drilling diameter and depth can be a decisive factor in choosing this style/kit.
When assembling at greater heights with heavier loads, or in public areas (due to vandalism), one should definitely go with a Heavy or Massive system. Please also refer to the general Planning guidelines.
