  • Green-tech launches tree irrigator bag

    Green-tech launches tree irrigator bag

    Green-tech has launched an innovative product for the landscaping industry - the Tree Irrigator. The slow-release watering bag works by delivering water to the root system, which then reduces the effects of dehydration or transplant shock.

    The Treegator® bag is a simple, yet clever concept. For trees with a diameter of between 3cm and 10cm, the bag easily zips around the tree trunk and is just filled with water. For trees with a wider girth diameter (10-20cm) users can zip two bags together. A single Treegator bag holds approximately 60 litres of water which is gradually released over 5 to 9 hours.

    Green-tech’s Sales Director Richard Gill comments: “This product is easy to install and inexpensive. What is different to other irrigation systems is that this can be installed after the tree has been planted. It can also be removed and then reused on other trees.”

    The Treegator is ideal for new trees planted in either shade or in an urban environment. Installation and fill take just minutes with no tools required.

  • CED Stone adds WPC decking to its range

    CED Stone adds WPC decking to its range

    CED Stone has added to its range of natural stone and hard landscaping products and is now an official supplier of Oakio Composite Wood Decking.

    Oakio durable composite wood decking is an innovative blend of 95% reclaimed oak wood fibre and plastic film. The company uses some of the most earth-friendly manufacturing processes in the UK, reclaiming factory waste, and eliminating the use of harmful chemicals. The use of a closed-loop water cooling system results in negligible water discharge during the manufacturing process.

    Giles Heap, MD of CED, explained the decision to add WPC decking alongside natural products: “It soon became clear that Oakio’s focus on environmental and sustainability issues is as central to their values, as integrity and honesty are to ours.”

    The deep embossing process of Oakio Iniwood decking causes the colour to variegate, producing a long-lasting wood grain effect. Fade-resistant, the decking is easy to install, is CE and FSC certified and comes with a 15-year warranty. There are six classic wood shades to choose from.

    Commercial Blinds UK has introduced two screening products that provide extra protection to help control the Covid-19 virus and provide additional reassurance for customers and staff.

    Hangerscreen requires no drilling and can be easily fixed to false or lowered ceilings. It attaches by magnets or sticky pads and will naturally hang from the wire guiding with the bottom bar keeping the screen taut. It makes a neat safety feature for offices and shops.

    Rollerscreen is a low-cost solution that fixes to the ceiling and can be in place in 10 minutes. It is easy to clean and sanitise and is available or set sizes or made to measure. Control options include chain or crank and there is an option of side guide wiring.
