This page belongs to the 'insulation' section and is a standard solution for attaching greening systems. Insulation materials usually have low pressure resistance, a supporting wall holders putting pressure on the external plaster is therefore not possible. Instead, this standard solution in wall insulation is to build a distancing system in to 12 (14) cm thickness, which then absorbs flexural and compressive forces. The support body can be made of metal pipe, foam-plastic tube or solid plastic. FassadenGrün uses a special, non-rotting hardwood. A steel plate covers the outer side and seals the drilled holes off.
Only this solution can at FassadenGrün the parameters of a 'heavy' construction '- ie high load capacity, etc. - be approached in facade insulation, but also for insulation thicknesses up to 8 cm. With insulating strengths up to 12 or 14 cms, the fixtures are conditionally suitable - see at the bottom. Strong climbing plants like Wisteria, Knotweed and tree Shrikes are partly usable - see below. An other restriction lies with the wall distance: It can be realized with 4 mms of rope only 6 - 7 cms. A raised distance to 9 cms is possible with insulating strengths to 8 cms and by use of 3 mms of rope, then, however, only with middle loading capacity. The price is based on an adequate 'Heavy Kit', circa 15 euro , but calculate also for each individual wall mount, mainly due to the price differences of the cross holders.
Installation is carried out retrospectively with still present scaffolding when the insulation of facades of final plaster is completely finished and scaffolding removal is effected. The professional installation may be performed by DIY enthusiasts; for details see assembly. Alternatively, a mounting is possible in advance. The plants are cut so that not too dense a foliage rolls occur and that no branches grow back to the wall and possibly scratch the plaster. If necessary, strong climbers used need special care and are sure to run parallel to the cable as described for Wisteria.
