Wire Rope Cross Mounts for Cable Systems

For wire rope systems, Fassadengrün uses 'cross holders/mounts,' from our own production. Here you can see how these attachments are grouped; at the same time, you'll get the first tips for selection, including selections for difficult types of walls. All components of the mounts are carefully thought out and coordinated (as you can see below), so any possible damage or mishap in your attachment system can be avoided!  >>> Price list

Standard Cross Mounts

FassadenGrün wire rope systems are grouped in construction styles using the following standard cross mounts: 

The ready-made kits with these cross mounts are suitable for almost all surfaces with the exception of: outer insulation, framework, panelling, and thin-walled concrete elements; for these, special mounts are required.

Special Cross Mounts

Cross mounts for problematic surfaces are also available. Determine your wall type and choose a suitable mount from the tips below. The individual types are named briefly here, but you can find the greatest selection under the Medium "Classic" Style (Kit)

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

  • WM 10083 for frameworks, panelling, panel building materials, etc.

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

  • WM 10121 for adhesive (glue) 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 (Kit) also offers further special supports:

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

  • WM 12227 for increased wall clearance up to 13 cm

  • WM 12XX2 / WM 12XX4 (coming soon in English) for many exterior insulation systems (EIFS) up to 6 cm with low/middle loads

  • WM 12XX8 for many exterior insulation systems (ETICS) up to 12 cm with higher loads and increased wall distance

  • WM 12XX9 for extra thick insulation (ETICS)

  • WM 12XX6 for (pre-installed) hard insulation (EIFS) (hard foam segments, etc.)

  • WH 08555 for direct mounting into ETICS


Cross heads

With a 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, which have a closed bottom.

Pressure Fittings

For through-hole mounting FassadenGrün offers GG 00000 sets, suitable for different thread sizes. For mounts/brackets with wood thread, however, the sets cannot be used. The counter-sets are designed so that they correspond 1:1 to the parts when the respective cross holder on the shaft plug and screw against the wall, including gasket, etc.. Thus, the sets are also suitable -- together with the above-mentioned crossheads -- 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 weight of the anchor. A high wall clearance creates a high flexural buckling that can bend the holder or even uproot it. FassadenGrün specifies exactly which wall clearances are permitted and best suited with which holders. Many cross holders are constructed such that exceeding the recommended wall distance is not possible.


Due to the bracing on the wall, the bending point is moved forward as far as possible (see graphics 01 and 02), the canting length (lever) is shortened, thereby reducing the deflection. With cross mounts M 6-10, curved discs with unusual hole diameters (such as 5.9 mm, 7.8 mm, 9.8 mm), made especially for FassedenGrün, are used. Thus, a steady control and support of the shaft is provided in the hole of the support disc.

High-Strength Mounting

Due to bracing/distortion, very high tensile stresses occur in the shaft of the cross mounts. These must be absorbed by the dowel system; otherwise, the mount can be loosened or pulled out during installation. That is why extra long and reliable dowels or alternative dowels (anchors) with very hight retention levels (DM 10030) are used... or even heavy duty dowels (WM 12153) are needed. An optimal attachment is glue in heavy kits; here then, no bracing/distortion is necessary.

Shaft Diameter and Length

The shank strengths of the individual designs are adapted to specific cable diameter. For 1.8 mms, cable cross mounts with shank thickness of 6 mm (M6 - light construction) are used. For 3 mm cable, those with 8 or 10 mm (average construction), and for 4 mm cable, those with 12 mm. Problems and damage occur when shafts of wall mounts, due to being too short, cannot 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 a safety slip protection. That means that overloads and strain in the wire rope system are only partially transferred 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 a conical point or a ring edge to produce any appropriate clamping forces.
