Pergola Trellises – We Don’t Only Green Walls

Noordhoek-Pergolas-7

Tensile Cables’ trellis solutions are easily customised to suit a wide variety of applications. With our custom made trellis clamp and L-shaped brackets, we are able to install trellises to fit almost any space, size and purpose. In this photo story, our trellis cables have been installed along a galvanised mild steel pergola pillar.

According to the client’s design, two vertical cables run along the length of the pillar. These have been secured 75 mm away from the pillar at each end with l-shaped brackets, and held together using our custom made trellis clamp. At the base of each pillar a creeper has been planted to grow along the discreet trellis.

Cables were also installed horizontally along the roof of the pergola as a decorative architectural feature. With the growth of the trellises in time, creeper will edge the pergola roof.

Cables are a perfect solution for trellises as their longevity is enhanced when the cables are cleaned along with watering of the plant matter. Even in coastal environments, Tensile Cables’ stainless steel cables and fittings can boast a surpassing lifespan.
