Wire rope grips i.a.

Cable clamps including rope clamps etc. On this page you will find information about fasteners for wire ropes. It involves rope clamps, grommets, clamps, rings, and other accessories. FassadenGrün helps you to plan mounting systems with a healthy minimalism. Thus, in the ready made kits are dispensed tension and joint elements and instead favors a tightening by hand. Here you get to know, when, however, the application of certain accessories is sensible. You find info about the single articles on the product sheets.>>> Price list

Grips and Thimbles

Rope clamps are robust, but very simple components - they are not usually used in fine architectural cables. FassadenGrün uses cable clamps in the so-called 'easy design'. Simple, low-cost Simplex terminals are recommended for 2 mm steel cable. At 3 (and 4 mm) rope come more classic 'steel rope clamps' used, which generate high clamping forces with minimal installation effort and cost. In pre-assembled kits, they are already included. The decorative egg formed clamps are interesting for their playground use, because of the rounded form, there is no injury danger here. They require, however, additionally still another a rope tensioning device or turnbuckle because with them the two rope strands cannot be tightened against each other. The additional use of thimbles at 3 and 4 mm of rope is function-relatedly and aesthetically profitable but not mandatorily required. Before the installation the small grommets must be opened on eyelet bolts, and for an extra charge, however, you can purchase open grommets at FassadenGrün.

Press Sleeves

From remaining stocks or on inquiry (at larger quantities) you can also receive as an alternative to grips cheap press sleeves (similar to Nicopress)  for 3 and 4 mm. These fastening systems, however, require special pliers to press them closed and aren't soluble.

Turnbuckles and Tensioners

Tension and joint elements are almost always omitted by FassadenGrün, instead we favour a tightening of the cables by hand. In exceptional cases, such as when cable systems like 0040 and 0010 (sometimes also 0050) or generally very long cables are spanned a tensioner is useful. They are screwed far apart before assembly, installed then with the assistance of the cable clamps and are tightened afterwards. 

The assortment has 2 different types. These both are similarly usable for 3 mm and 4 mm ropes. SP 05160 is a cheap cable tensioner, the turnbuckle SP 05190 is then more representative, moreover, the tightened state can here be fixed permanently by a lock nut and loosening the rope movements by wind etc. is impossible. SP 08280 is suitable for particularly heavy applications. The GS wire tensioner SP 03000 is used rather for re-tensioning already mounted wires or ropes up to 3 mm in diameter.


Springs SF 02530 are recommended only in exceptions e.g. if it is already foreseeable at a dowelling in the front-end that it doesn't produce the required hold values regarding the cross forces (approx. 250 kg at 3 mm of cable). This can be the case with a very loose, soft masonry and clay building-materials. Additional grips can be provided for the mounting.

Clamp Rings

Clamping rings KL 00034 are used primarily for detached growing systems, e.g. at cable system 0050.

Rings and Quick Links

Special parts such as RI 05050 and SG 05050 be used if, for example, several ropes depart from a ground anchor .
