- Stops water from pooling, which can lead to root spiralling or concentrations of fibrous roots near the barrier.
- Allows the flow of nutrients through the soil but still completely effective at controlling root growth.
- As it is permeable, and can be laid horizontally and vertically, CuTex is perfect to use for the cell burial of soil with contaminated knotweed material.
We can provide pre-cut, bespoke sizes and full rolls of CuTex.
A geocomposite root barrier system consisting of a copper sheet mechanically encapsulated between a woven polypropylene geotextile and a high strength non-woven polypropylene geotextile.
Installed correctly, CuTex acts as a physical & chemical root barrier for Japanese knotweed and other invasive species, allowing the segregation of contaminated soils.
With our CuTex Root Barrier, the copper acts as a signal layer that all plants avert their growth from. CuTex only releases minute quantities of the copper ion and is a safe, yet effective root growth blocking material.
