The Rootball Fixing Kit - Wired

The Rootball Wired Fixing Kit is the ideal solution for underground securing of newly planted rootballed and containerised trees without the need for any over ground support. The kit has been assembled to provide the best possible start for the new planting, delivering security, safety and peace of mind for the installer as well as being aesthetically pleasing. The kits are available in five sizes to suit tree sizes from light standard to semi mature. They are simple to install offering precise positioning for the anchor points, with high strength tensile wires that incorporate rootball protectors spreading the load and preventing damage to the tree’s root structure.

Kit Components

  • High tensile wire
  • Galvanised anchors
  • Rubber rootball protectors
  • Ratchet tensioner

 

The Rootball Fixing Kit - Strap

The Rootball Strap Fixing Kit incorporates webbed strapping to provide the necessary positioning and anchoring for newly planted rootballed and containerised trees. A more superior alternative to traditional staking and belting, the strap kit will prevent leaning trees offering peace of mind for the installer. Simple to install, the webbed strapping includes a ratchet tensioner that provides the ideal level of fastening whilst also preventing damage to the tree’s root structure.

Kit Components

  • Webbed strapping
  • Galvanised anchors
  • Ratchet tensioner

Dead Man Kit - Wired

Where trees are being installed in urban environments, care must be taken to avoid utilities and services and it is therefore not always possible to drive anchors into the ground. The Wired Dead Man Kit uses high tensile wires over rubber rootball protectors to spread the load and prevent damage. These are then attached to heavy objects such as sleepers and kerbstones that may already be in place to weigh down the tree. Well compacted subsoil is then placed over the sleepers and kerbstones to provide added weight and security for the tree.

Wire Kit Components

  • High tensile wire
  • Rubber rootball protectors
  • Ratchet tensioner

Dead Man Kit - Strap

This tried and tested system has been incorporated into many rail, utilities and urban projects across the UK. By utilising sleepers or kerbstones this provides the perfect solution for situations where you cannot drive traditional anchors into the ground due to underground utilities or in non-displaceable ground. Like the Rootball Strap Kit, the Dead Man Strap Kit will prevent leaning trees, offering peace of mind for the installer. Simple to install, the webbed strapping includes a ratchet tensioner that provides the ideal level of fastening whilst also preventing damage to the tree’s root structure.

Strapping Kit Components

  • Webbed strapping
  • High tensile wire
  • Ratchet Tensioner

Drop – Man Kit – Wired

The Drop-Man Kit is our newest system to join our tree kit range. As part of our ongoing commitment to innovation and providing solutions for our clients we designed a new tree kit system that works in a similar way to our Dead Man Kit. The Drop-Man plates are used to weigh down the tree when traditional anchors cannot be used and there are no heavy objects already available on site to use with a Dead Man Kit. Having all components in one kit makes it easier and more cost effective than having to source kerbstones or sleepers separately.

Wire Kit Components

  • 3 x Drop-Man plates
  • High tensile wire slings
  • Rubber rootball protectors
  • Ratchet Tensioner

Drop – Man Kit – Strap

The Drop-Man plates are attached to high tensile wire which is then looped onto the tensioning strap which is placed over the rootball. The Drop-Man plates are lightweight but provide enough surface area in their concaved shape to hold down trees of up to 7.5m tall. The webbed strapping has a built-in ratchet and includes a ratchet tensioner to provide the ideal level of fastening in a fast and easy to use method.

Strapping Kit Components

  • 3 x Drop-Man plates
  • Webbed strapping
  • High tensile wire slings
  • Ratchet Tensioner

Containerised Rootball Kit - Wired

The Containerised Rootball Fixing Kit is the preferred method of securing saplings and rootball trees in planters and containers. Ideal for roof garden planting projects, the kit provides the flexibility and security of being able to plant trees above ground. The kit replaces traditional anchors with 3 eye-bolts that can be secured into the solid base of a container, planter or even roof top, this offers a discreet securing system that will not impact on the over- all design.

Kit Components

  • High tensile wire
  • Eyebolts
  • Rubber rootball protectors
  • Ratchet tensioner
  • Fastlink wire joiners
  • Steel thimbles

Overhead Guying Kit - Wired
