RootBarrier® RollRib® in Etten-Leur (NL)

Anita Molenaar

Commissioned by the municipality of Etten-Leur, the entire Van Bergenplein, the core shopping area in Etten-Leur, will be renovated this year. To prevent root damage to the new street work, the municipality has opted to install a root guidance system in all plant / tree sections. In the past, these screens consisted of separate parts that had to be put together one by one.

The latest innovation in this area is the root guidance system on a roll: the RootBarrier® RollRib®! Due to the long length of no less than 21 meters (or even 75 meters) per roll, the work is considerably simpler and many times faster.
