Capillary mats

A capillary mat is a mat that distributes water evenly over the plants from below. The advantage of watering from below is that there’s good root development in the pot. At Royal Brinkman you can find a wide range of capillary mats.

Capillary matting for horticulture

Capillary mats are used in various crops for optimal irrigation. In addition, irrigation mats can be applied to various irrigation systems: irrigation, drip irrigation, ebb and flow systems and roll containers. For the best growing results, it is important that the irrigation mats are placed and used correctly. Before using the irrigation mat, make sure that the irrigation mat is completely wet with water. It is important that you do this with a low surface tension, because this ensures that the water is well absorbed. Capillry mats have a capillary effect so that the water is evenly distributed over the entire surface of the mat. The higher this capillary effect is, the better and faster the distribution of water through the mat. Royal Brinkman offers three types of capillary matting from supplier Henofa:
  • TG super: TG super capilarry mats consist of recycled fibres, which allows the mat to absorb a lot of water but makes it more difficult to pass it on to each other.
  • Klavertmat: Klavermat capillry mats contain new fibres, so all fibres have the same structure. This ensures good water absorption and distribution, resulting in homogeneous irrigation.
  • Klavermat HC: this capillary mat contains new fibres, but here the application is of great importance. 

Klaver capillary mat

The Klaver capillary mat is produced from 100% high-quality synthetic fibers. Each fiber has exactly the same properties and structure, resulting in a high capillary action. The capillary mat is distinguished by its chemical resistance and constant operation. The Klaver capillary mat lasts 8 to 10 years with normal use. With capillary matting there is a reproducible and constant capillary effect. Henofa has also developed the Klavertmat HC. This capillary mat is an extension of the existing mats. The advantage of the Klavermat HC is that it has a low water capacity with a high distribution speed. Excess water could therefore be drained away.
