Binding elements are an indispensable part of a facade greening! Several situations require a special binder: very sensitive, young climbing plants will need a different binding than the thick stems in viticulture or other espalier fruit plants. FassadenGrün offers the necessary binders made of plastic, because currently no comparable products from renewable raw materials are available. In the past, elaborate binding techniques were used-- special slip knots made of halved, freshly-cut or damp willow rods could 'give'/yield with the growth of the attached stem and prevent constrictions. >>> Price list
An important note in advance: please do not use binding materials made of paper, plastic (or the like) which may contain iron wire! The nearly unavoidable contact between iron and stainless steel cable or holders leads to discolouration and possibly even to rust on the high grade stainless steel.
This elastic hollow cord HS 04005 and HS 04100 are suitable in the universal thickness of 4 mm for tying green or woody shoots/stems to wire rope, wire, and wood. The very strong 8 mm tubing cord HS 08005, in turn, is especially suitable for firm yet flexible/elastic ties with thicker, woody shoots of vine, climbing roses, espalier fruit, and wisteria.
The binder material GC 00110 was developed for professional fruit production and meets the highest standards and demands. It is characterised by low contact pressure with a large contact surface due to the wide, flat rubber profile. The soft but firm binding is resilient for many years, thus reducing the need for maintenance work on trellis plants.
With these strong rubber elements-- BD 20020 -- serious climbers, such as espalier trees, can be tied and knotted to trellis slats. In the field, the bandage is used as a tree tie.
This high-strength, non-stretchable binder KB 25025 is used for extremely heavy binding of branches and trunks of large climbing plants on cable and trellis battens and can be adjusted anytime. It is a professional heavy duty product from the green/tree nursery sector, not comparable with standard hobby-quality velcro ties.
