The RootBarrier® RollRib® is an innovative root guidance system on a roll, made of 1.5 mm high density polyethylene (HDPE) and is 100% recyclable. The RollRib® has integrated vertical guidance ribs that function as a ground anchor, which prevent the (tree) roots from pushing the RollRib® up. In addition, the guidance ribs ensure that roots are guided downwards in a controlled manner.
This system is easy and faster to install than alternative products due to the different lengths of 21 and 75 meters. Moreover, the RollRib® is easy to cut to the desired length thanks to the cutting line that is on every meter of the roll. The RollRib® can easily and quickly be connected with the enclosed screws. Because it has guidance ribs every 18 cm, it can be placed either in a line, in a square or in a circle surrounding the tree.
