The horizontally tensioned stainless steel strands ø 12 mm constitute the primary climber training support
structure; the vertical stainless steel trainer ropes ø 5 mm are attached to the support structure with special
clamps. Tension relief devices at the rope end connectors prevent excessive loads on the steelwork.
The 600 m2 climber trainer (25 x 24 m) is a successful example of façade greening with Jakob® Rope Systems.
Since the planting year, the climber plants have flourished and reached the top of this car park façade
(also see report G6.1).
