Rootball Fixing System
£42.00 – £64.00 + VAT
The Platipus rootball fixing system, including Platimat, remains the preferred method of securing rootballs or containerised semi-mature trees.
The ease of installation & lack of unsightly guy wires makes it the first choice of customers. The Platimat allows faster installation & creates a greater contact surface area & the top of the rootball and prevents the wires from causing lasting damage.
Basic tools required are the Drive Rod & Tension Lever. We are happy to discuss & recommend kits for particular applications & soil conditions. Please contacts us if you have any questions or need further information this product.
