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 rootguidance systemon 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.
