In the specialist literature of the 18th and 19th centuries, this form is described in detail. A chamber system consisted of a low timber frame with 80 cm height and "chambers" of approx. 1.10 m column spacing and approx. 0.80 m line width. With longitudinal and transverse slats one spoke of closed, without transverse slats of open chamber construction. Several Rows of vines formed a "stool", between which grass-covered corridors for material transport remained. The fruit wood of the vines, which were planted in about 80 cm distance in the vine rows, was attached to the longitudinal beam with Bindeweiden. From 1860, the longitudinal beams were replaced by wires, and it created the first wire frame systems. The wire frame systems then replaced the chamber construction.
