Small wall grids

FassadenGrün sells training aids for climbing plants - you can order stainless-steel trellises and fixings here. The rigid trellises can also be used for externally insulated walls! There is an inexhaustible diversity of shapes and materials available - you will find examples of all kinds of trellises on this page. On the next page you will see examples of larger grids, so-called "fence panels".

Praise the rectangle

Metal trellises usually have the shape of a "standing rectangle", the upright position helps the growth of the plants. The irregular lines of the plants contradict the severe lines of the trellis and the façade. The image of the "green wall" that emerges between the strict lines is very harmonious ... The rectangular shape is a very strong design element for wall trellises!

Frame - with or without?

Most of our trellises are designed with an exterior frame. Some forme have protruding wires however, as seen on some photos on this page - the trellises look very delicate, but the risk of injury is real...

Grid shapes

Inside the frame, the grid mesh can be made of squares or rectangles; those can be arranged evenly or as is the case with our trellises, be a little more dense in the middle.

The grid should not be too compact. For most plants, a lot of dried vines must be removed every year, especially with vines and leaved vines.

Diamond shaped trellises

Diamond or rhomboid shapes add an interesting structure to the wall, especially when they are enclosed in a strong frame.

Complex trellises

There is a plethora of complex floral forms available for training aids, for standing trellises as well as facade trellises.

Wich metal: stainless-steel, electroplated or rust?

Our trellises are made of stainlesssteel and are mostly rust free. The grids are galvanically cleaned and are therefore free of impurities that might appear during the spot-welding process. Most grids that are generally sold are not cleaned galvanically, those are not rust resistant enough to be used in facade greening.

Galvanized grids can last for several decades outdoors, depending on the situation on site. Steel trellises with a plastic coating rarely last more than 5 years... Some trellises are deliberately produced with rust to emphasize an "antique" flair!

Fan-shaped trellises

Fan-shaped trellises add new diagonal lines on the facade. When they are placed next to a window, they disrupt the harmony between the shape of the plant and the vertical and horizontal lines of the building. The eye of the observers are irritated... fan-shaped trellises shouldn't be used only on walls without doors or windows.
