Wire Rope System 5050

The basic form 5050: small to medium-sized cable systems with a particularly high rope density... climbing grids for slow-growing plants (such as clematis). It contrasts with the large mesh size of the 8030, which is designed for large wall areas. Rope system 5050 consists of a primary and an auxiliary grid (see graphic below). In this way, an increased density without many wall mounts is achieved, but the assembly requires correspondingly more effort. The "meshes" can be square or rectangular. The basic grid covers all tensioned rope sections up to 5020 whose cross points are fixed with wall mounts. The auxiliary grid consists of additional strands of rope/cable, which are fastened by means of cross clamps. Climbing rods also offer their services for the auxiliary grid at breadths less than 2 m. To select a suitable construction style, please refer to the guidelines in the section on climbing plants (charts at the bottom of each plant profile).

The pre-assembled kits are suitable for all wall types with the exception of insulation, cladding, and thin-walled concrete elements. Alternatives can be put together in all cases.


Height x Width: standard up to max. 1.5 m x 1.5 m; with a heavy/massive kit up to 2.4 m x 2.4 m. The meshes (stitches) in the basic grid (blue) are 0.4 to 0.8 m; in the heavy/massive kit up to 1.2 m; those in the secondary grid (grey) are 15 - 25 (40) cm. The base of these climbing rope systems is 0.5 - 1.2 m above the ground. With more material the basic form can be extended as desired.


Installation: carried out as shown in the diagrams; please also refer to the installation tips in chart above). The assembly effort is considerably higher than with other cable systems! The ropes of the secondary grid remain slack; otherwise, they distort the structures of the main grid. The horizontal ropes require special care: they are best installed with a slight wave movement ("oscillating"). Or they can be set roughly straight in several steps, which requires more installation effort.

The basic grid (blue) analogous to 5020 includes all the tensioned cable strands/sections whose cross sections are fixed with cross mounts. The assisting/auxiliary grid (grey) consists of additionally added loose rope strands that are attached with cross clamps.
