RootBarrier B.V. has developed a new modular root guidance system, based on the Rootbarrier® Connector and separate Rootbarrier® RootPanels® Rib. These RootPanels® Rib are made of HDPE 2mm. The system guides the roots downwards, allowing them to spread below the Rootbarrier® RootPanels® Rib. RootBarrier® RootPanels® Rib are installed vertically and are able to be placed straight, square and around the tree thanks to the guiding ribs every 18 cm.
The RootBarrier® Connector itself may be folded at a 90 degree angle. The RootBarrier® Connector also has guiding ribs that guide the roots downwards. A soil anchor may be attached to the RootBarrier® Connector to prevent the screen from being pushed up. Covers for the top Connectors are also optional.
