Water permeable anti-root barrier

DuPont™ Plantex® RootProtector, the most effectively water permeable anti-root barrier. A unique structure of exceptionally thin fibres joined through thermal binding. Perfect for use in horizontal installations, such as construction of cycle tracks, forest lanes or green roofs.


  • High permeability: about 165 l/m2 /s,
  • It allows the earth to breathe,
  • Resistant to roots due to the welded structure,
  • Tear-resistant,
  • It retains its properties for over 20 years when covered with a layer of bark or gravel.
