For durable and extremely heavy binding of branches or trunks of larger climbing plants to wire ropes and trellis slats or bars. Due to its wide binding surface, the velcro does not cut into the wood. Especially for heavy trunk spindles of vines and other creepers, for attaching to concrete pillars (photo), balcony supports, etc.. Of course, also for tying fruit trees to wooden posts, etc.. Please refer as needed to our general information on binding material.
As shown in the photos. For a long life, the two ends should overlap at least 40 - 70 mm, so that even with a later readjustment, enough velcro length is available.
Depending on the respective thickness and growth of the trunks/stems, the velcro band should be checked 2 times per year and be loosened as/if needed. The wear occurs mainly on the surfaces of the velour not covered by an overlapping velcro layer, where it is then exposed, without protection, to UV-rays. Once the guaranteed UV-stability has expired, further use of the velcro should be checked according to the particular situation. Alternatively, rubber strip/bands could also be used.
