Wire Rope Cross Mounts for Cable Systems

for cable systems, so-called 'cross holders/mounts,' are put together by our company - FassadenGrün! Here you can see how these fasteners are grouped, at the same time you get the first tips for selection, even selections for difficult types of walls. All components of the mounts are carefully thought out and coordinated, as you can see below. Thus, damage and failure cases are prevented in the fastening system.  >>> Price list

Standard Cross Mounts

Wire cable systems of FassadenGrün form groups in styles which use the following standard cross holders:

The ready made kits with these cross mounts are suitable for almost all surfaces, but not for outer insulation, framework, decoration and thin-walled concrete elements, for this, special holders are required.

Special Cross Mounts

Cross mounts are available also for problematic surfaces. Determine your wall type and choose a suitable holder from the notes there. Independently of it, the individual types are named briefly here. the biggest choice offers are in the medium "Classic" style:

  • WM 10081 for thin concrete walls for pre-fab garages etc.

  • WM 10083 for frameworks, board materials and the like.

  • WM 10101 for special cases also with counter pressure set.

  • WM 10121 for adhesive assembly also with counter pressure set (link WM 10101).

  • WM 10151 as a long version of WM 10121 for special cases (link WM 10101)

  • WH 10181 as a long version of WH 10151 for special cases.


The heavy style also offers further special supports:

  • WM 12161 for massive wood (then without composite mortar etc.)

  • WM 12227 for increased wall distances up to 13 cm

  • WM 12XX2 / WM 12XX4 (coming soon in english) for many Exterior Insulation Systems at low to middle loads

  • WM 12XX8 for many Exterior Insulation Systems at higher loads and wall distance

  • WM 12XX9 for particularly thick Insulation

  • WM 12XX6 for insulation (with hard foam segments and the like)


  • WH 08555 for direct mounting into ETICS


Cross heads

As KK 00000 you can also buy the heads separately and thus individual cross mounts for special cable systems (railings, curtains, etc.)for the do-it-yourself construction of cross mounts. These parts are usually not identical with cross clamps that have a closed bottom.

Pressure Fittings

For through-hole mounting FassadenGrün offers GG 00000 sets, suitable for different thread sizes. For brackets with wood thread the fittings however cannot be used. The counter-sets are designed so that they match the parts 1:1 when the respective cross holder on the shaft plug and screw against the wall, including seal, etc..Therefore the sets are also suitable - together with the further crossheads mentioned on top - for the do-it-yourself construction of fixtures.

Measured Wall Distance

The distance of a cable from the wall acts as a lever arm and thus determines the burden of the anchor. A high wall produces a high flexural buckling that can bend the holder or even uproot it. FassadenGrün specifies exactly which wall clearances with which holders are at maximum allowed and best used. Many cross holders are so constructed that exceeding the recommended wall distance is not possible.


Because of distortions of the wall  the bending point are moved as forward and far as possible (see graphics 01 and 02), the collar length (lever) is reduced, thereby reducing the loads. With cross mounts M 6-10 arched discs with unusual hole diameter are used like 5.9 mms, 7.8 mms and 9.8 mms which are punched especially for FassadenGrün. Thus a steady guidance and support of the shaft is given in the hole of the supporting disc.

High-Strength Mounting

Distortion is caused by very high tensile stresses in the shaft of the cross mounts. These have to be absorbed by the anchor system, otherwise during installation it can loosen or pull out the mount. Therefore, extra long and reliable anchors are used or alternative anchors with very high retention levels (DM 10030) or even heavy duty anchors (WM 12153) are needed. An optimal attachment is also glue for heavy kits, here then no bracing is required.

Shaft Diameter and Length

The shank strengths of the individual designs are adapted to specific cable diameter. For 1.8 mms, cable cross mount with shank thickness 6 mm (M6 - light construction) are used. For 3 mm cable those with 8 or 10 mm (average construction) and 4 mm cable for those with 12 mm. Problems and damage occurs when shafts of wall mounts ,due to being too short, can not be anchored deeply enough or if they are not through-drilled for sturdiness. FassadenGrün doesn’t have such mount and cable systems in stock.

Resilient Construction

Thanks to their slender shank, cross mounts by FassadenGrün are not rigid, but designed for flexibility. You can intercept shock loads, as a result ,without permanent deformation.

Borehole and Seals

10 to 16 mm are required for dowelling with the Cross mount. Under 'comparison' you can select the desired cross mount borehole diameter. Sufficiently large holes are essential for the mentioned high-strength mounting. All holders have powerful seals. If one fastens in joints, you can receive additional seals on request.

Safety slip in the Cable System

All cross mounts have an safety slip protection, but not completely.  Only a partial strain in the wire rope system is transmitted to the mount. In case of overload, the rope can give, slip out of the clamping head and later be readjusted, without incurring damage to the holder or the dowels. Depending on the specific design special set screws are used with flat point or ring edge to produce any appropriate clamping forces.
