Visitors to the ARB Show in June flocked to the stand of Wrekin Products, manufacturer of intelligent products for civil engineering, confirming widespread interest in its geosynthetics range and especially its new Tree Root Protection System.
There is ever-increasing demand by local authorities for maintaining tree health, against the backdrop of urgently needed development that requires the construction of access roads, cycle tracks and footpaths in close proximity to existing trees.
Roy Partington, Divisional Director – Geosynthetics
The Wrekin Tree Root Protection System is a simple, no-dig system that enables development without damaging existing trees, using ProtectaWeb geo-cell and Root-Tex 30™ and Root-Tex 10™ geotextiles. Positive feedback at ARB Show from landscape architects, arboricultural consultants and contractors supports Wrekin’s intention for the system to become the standard specification product for tree root protection.
Wrekin welcomed large numbers of visitors to its stand who were eager not only to find the right products for their projects but also a high degree of technical support.
The Wrekin geosynthetics team, led by Divisional Director Roy Partington, was on hand to offer site-specific design advice to visitors on the use of ProtectaWeb and associated grass paving products.
