The perfect solution for a 90° angle in a tree pit!
We've been using the root guide panels since 1976, and at GreenMax we are very proud of this product. It has allowed us to achieve fantastic results with hundreds of projects, both in the Netherlands and abroad.
It is an ideal resource for trees in the city if you want to prevent the roots from coming up. The roots are guided a little deeper into the ground, which strongly reduces the risk of the roots coming up.
The panels are 2 mm thick and have guide ribs and root anchors, but also include a double top edge, which helps prevent root overgrowth. The panel always protrudes slightly above ground level to prevent the roots growing over the panel. The strong double edge allows for a visually pleasing and neat installation. This edge prevents it from being damaged, broken or cut when the screens are accessed. A broken screen provides instant escape for the roots, reducing the screen's functionality.
This strong double top edge makes the panels very rigid and also less flexible. Naturally, that contributes to the long-term goal. The only drawback of these non-flexible screens is that they're more difficult to place in a 90° angle.
GreenMax has come up with a solution! A TRG panel in the shape of a 90° angle. The angle is connected to a retractable TRG panel on both sides so that it can be used for any size of tree pit at any time. This allows you to make neat 90° angles in any tree pit. These new angle profiles will be available at GreenMax as of the end of January.
