Wire Rope Trellis System 5050

Assembly sketch for wire rope system no. 5050

The 5050 describes 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 coloured diagram below). In this way, an increased density can be achieved without many wall mounts, 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 cable, 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).

Our pre-assembled kits are suitable for all wall types with the exception of walls with external 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 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. Trellis base: ~0.5 - 1.2 m above the ground. With more material the basic form can be extended as desired.


Installation: as shown in the diagrams; please also refer to the mounting tips in chart above. The installation 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 whose cross sections are fixed with wall mounts. The assisting/auxiliary grid (grey) consists of additionally inserted slack cable strands that are secured via cross clamps.
The coordination of basic and auxiliary nets requires considerably more dexterity than with other cable systems: massive construction style--modified, clematis
