Binding material for high demands. For almost all binding needs, but especially for completely constriction-free tying of sensitive, young green shoots, which is crucial for the later building of the stem and branch structure of climbing plants which thus need special protection. Especially for young and older shoots of clematis (see photo). Low contact pressure at the same time large contact surface due to the wide, flat rubber profile. For climbing aids made of cable and wire as well as trellis/espalier slats and rods. The very soft but relatively tight rubber ties (bands) will remain completely maintenance-free for many years, thus saving a considerable part of the maintenance work of trellis plants. Please refer as needed to our general information on binding material.
As can be seen in the photos: with simple lattices/espalier battens, a single wrap or loop suffices; with wire rope and iron rods, make a double wrap.
If the tie is too short, two pieces can be 'chained' together. For bindings which may be removed after a season or after two years, an inexpensive elastic cord is also suitable. For trunk/stem diameters > 5 cm, velcro or rubber strip/bandage is recommended.
We offer this product in plastic because no comparable products from renewable raw materials are yet available.
