Naturally, there are different providers of tensioning rope/cable systems. Perhaps you have seen a particular system on a house and are now wondering, "who sells it?...possibly FassadenGrün?" We are happy when we can meet all your needs and be of any extra assistance, but no one can offer everything. As we cannot fulfill every wish, we gladly refer you to our competitors when they can help. In the following overview you can see how FassadenGrün positions itself in the field of providers. An even longer list -- especially for planners of large construction projects -- is available from the Ulmer Press. When comparing products, please note the guidelines we provide about possible damages to tensioning cables or when working with stainless steel.
You will find stainless steel wire, clamps, and rope/cable tensioners in any hardware store; with these, you can arrange tensioning rope systems similar to the so called "Easy Kits" at FassadenGrün. Though mostly designed for curtains, you can even find entire tensioning systems at furniture stores.
Such companies mostly make offers for a climbing system from catalogues of specialist wholesalers of metalworking/locksmithing supplies; for example-- the ASS-system by "Hubert Waltermann GmbH & Co KG," the system by "Philipp GmbH," the "Triebenbacher GmbH," as well as "Abel Metallwaren"-- to name but a few. The "Seilerei Voigt GmbH" produces climbing ropes with compression ability for larger projects.
In addition to the basic product line of hardware stores, you can find eye bolts and other special greening-related supplies at boat/water/sports stores, or on the internet.
Here you will find tension rope systems with thin ropes for lighter loads, similar to the light structures offered by FassadenGrün. Noteworthy are: the smallest system-- the "Peddy Shield" and the most inexpensive system -- the "Windhager," (zinc-coated/galvanized, not made of stainless steel).
Some companies, like "FassadenGrün," specialise almost exclusively and passionately in the field of "facade greening." These companies include, for instance, "Thomas Brandmeier Ranksysteme", or "Thorwald Brandwein Fassadenbegrünung" (bar systems only). They sell their products via cataloque, internet, or the commercial GaLaBau. The latter two companies also offer climbing aids for surfaces, such as trapezoidal sheet metal and sandwich panels on industrial facades.
Even large wire rope factories or supplies manufacturers have discovered wall greening and provide catalogues with a high-grade assortment (especially of tensile structures/rope nets) under the keyword "architectural ropes/cables." This kind of information is sought after by big greening projects, where services are advertised. Some companies worthy of mention are: "Carl-Stahl GmbH," the "Brugg Drahtseil AG," the "Jakob Drahtseil AG," as well as the "Lothar Huck GmbH." The special system by "Dr. Jürges" (textile-covered ropes) especially belongs on this list.
Manufacturers of WDVS also offer integrated tensioning rope systems for insulating layers; eg. the company Alsecco with "Alsifix Plant."
