The BWM irrigation mat is a standard irrigation mat that is produced with 100% recycled synthetic fibres. The product is free of natural fibres, that could easily rot or cause fungi.

The BWM irrigation mat offers a high water capacity in combination with the low capillary action. The BWM irrigation mat is an excellent choice for farms that renew their crop system every year, given the relatively low investment costs and the optimal result. The BWM irrigation mat is also very suitable for use in gutter systems and on presentation tables

The BWM irrigation mat can be equipped with ground cover and/or anti algae foil. Besides the convenience this leads to a saving of construction costs.
