Cellweb® Tree Root Protection
Cellweb Tree Root Protection System provides a flexible and permeable solution for protecting tree roots while creating a robust and stable platform when creating vehicular access paths.
Cellweb Cellular Confinement System with its unique cellular structure and perforated cell walls reduces the vertical load pressure on sub soils above tree roots and prevents compaction. With clean granular materials as infill, air and moisture can reach the roots to encourage healthy prolonged growth.
With no-dig solutions being the preferred option Cellweb is ideal as only the surface vegetation need be removed. As well as avoiding disruption to the roots this reduces construction times and costs.
Sub base depths can be reduced significantly, by using the Cellweb in most cases this can be as much as 50%, providing further cost savings. This use of Cellweb also prevents surface rutting, increasing the long-term performance and aesthetics of the final surface.
Recent research on the Cellweb System has proven the systems performance, and Cellweb is the only system on the market to have undertaken these trials.
Cellweb has been designed and tested under the most rigorous conditions; part of the reliability is the use of associated products and installation following the manufacturer’s instructions. Please see the installation guide in the "TECHNICAL INFO" tab. For fully compliant system where vehicular access is planned Treetex membrane must be used as part of the build up. Pins to hold the matrix open are also required at 10 pins per metre (these are left in situ) additionally adjacent cells will need to be staples together.
When enquiring about Cellweb we will always suggest following the manufacturers guidelines, all products required to install Cellweb are available from Ecomerchant.
