Efficient root barrier

DuPont™ Plantex® RootBarrier is a coated non-woven structure based on Plantex® Liner , ideal for preventing invasive growth and damage by aggressive plant roots, e.g. bamboo.

It protects underground drainage, sewage, piping and cable systems from root invasion and damage.
By controlling the growth of aggressive rooting plants and trees, Plantex® RootBarrier also protects patios, paved areas, asphalted surfaces as well as buildings and utility channels.
