As alternatives to the classic wooden trellis, there are a variety of other shapes. The most common is the square grid-- the 'chequer-board or 'chess board.' For this classification, the fields only have to be roughly, not perfectly, square. The following examples are here to help you plan and build your own trellis. We have all the trellis fittings/mounts needed for assembly.
These trellises can be designed as closed frames or with extended/protruding laths. They appear lighter and less dense than the classic wooden trellis. The greater distance between elements also means that climbing plants have less "grip", making them harder to train. Take this into account when planning.
The classic differentiation between vertical laths and horizontal beams ('crossbeams') is not really relevant here, and all wooden parts will be of the same thickness. Either vertical or horizontal wood elements can be attached to the facade. Whichever you choose (vertical or horizontal)- is then closer to the wall. Other details become decisive for these trellises. Please also note the information on the respective product sheets as well as the information under the "Attachment" section.
