Optimal basic form for the guidance of T-shaped climbing systems, with good cable density over windows, doors, etc.. The short cable sections ('wire bridges') arranged on the two t-shaped triple lines offer the plants additional grip. In cramped conditions, 2 lines instead of 3 should be used, (basic form 3040) to ensure sufficient distance to the facade's structurally relevant lines. For support in choosing a suitable construction style, please also refer to the guidelines in the climbing plants section (see charts at the bottom of each plant profile).

Our pre-assembled kits are suitable for all wall types, with the exception of walls with outer insulation, cladding, and thin-walled concrete elements. Alternatives can be put together in all cases.
Height x Breadth: max. ~ 3.7 m x 6 m (4.7 m x 7.2 m for a Heavy / Massive Kit). Distance between the three ropes: ~ 20 -35 cm, see also "vine training" below. The rope bridge on the vertical ropes can be moved up from a centric position to be placed in the "golden ratio" of the vertical area (see diagram), thus emphasizing the striving character of the climbing plants. Base point: ~0.5, 1.2 m above the ground. With more rope, mounts and cross clamps, the basic form can be expand as desired, also up to 4 or 5 parallel ropes. Then, ~ every 1.5 m (1.8 m) inter-supports (mounts) or in each case, a short "rope bridge" made from two holders and a cross clamp. Please contact us if you have questions!
Installation: as indicated in the diagrams; see the mounting tips above (click on a kit for details). For Easy Kits, diagrams are not yet available. If you order climbing elements and ask specifically for this, you will receive installation instructions.
Vines Training: See diagrams. Vertical cordon in combination with horizontal cordon (R 01). Spur pruning, above also medium-length and long cut. Also a combination of two different vines in separate planting pits is possible(R 02); with off-centre guidance on the vertical ropes, the shoots/branches should point inwards. Central guidance and coming from a common planting pit is also possible (R 03); then halve the number of branches in the vertical area. The distance between the horizontal ropes should - depending on internode spacing typical of the variety - be rather long (so, about 30 -35 cm). 4 -5 horizontal ropes are often even more favourable than 3; then, the distance then can be less.
