The Fatra ballasted planter box system incorporates the Fatrafol 810v PVC membrane waterproofing system with the Fatra Armour protection layer, Fatra drainage cell, filter fabric and vegetation layer to create the perfect planter box system.
The specifications for the different layers will depend on the clients objectives, requirements and project-specific specifications.
Fatra provide all components for planter box projects making it simple and convenient for our approved contractors.
The Fatrafol PVC membranes are tested to FLL standards and are proven to withstand root penetration from the most aggressive roots such as birch and oak trees. No additional protection layers or root resistant coatings are required unlike traditional bitumen and liquid membranes.
Fatrafol membranes are 100% recyclable and can be made using up to 30% recycled materials making Fatra waterproofing membranes the most sustainable and environmentally friendly waterproofing membranes on the market today.
Fatra Armour protection mat is loose laid over the Fatrafol PVC Membrane to protect the membrane from the drainage cell. Installation of Fatra Drainage cell is then installed with a filter fabric applied above the drainage cell prior to the installation of the planter box build up.
The Fatrafol 810v reinforced membrane is installed over the substrate to protect the structure from water ingress and is ballasted into place by the planter box system.
