Still at the same price as 11 years ago, this represents the best value for money of any product out there. 100 grams per square metre represents a heavy duty product that can be used even under the construction or driveways where traffic can be extreme.

Sliding Track for Warehouse Curtains

allplas.co.uk have now introduced galvanised steel track and fittings, this is as a result of the many requests we have had for a sensible system to hang curtains from.

The day the system was delivered, a customer was told what we could supply and added track and fittings to his order. The result is excellent, the track is galvanised and can eithe be fixed by screwing straight through the pre drilled track into the ceiling above, or with the wall brackets available on the site. The sliders are all twin wheeled with ball bearings for smooth effortless movement and the result is really good.

Polyester Reinforced Clear PVC Sheeting

Return to allplas main site

 

Following a quite serious fire at Chester Zoo, a client contacted us at allplas.co.uk as they had a large exposed area where the roof was missing and the Crocodile enclosure was exposed to very low temperatures and the rain. The client fitted cables across to walls and we supplied 2 large clear reinforced PVC sheets and several rolls of large bubble greenhouse insulation. The first sheet went over the cables, then the bubble was rolled out over that with the second sheet creating a sandwich to keep the bubble in place. The temperature went from 2 degrees to 27.5 degrees withing a few hours. The great news was that the ideal temperature for the Crocs is 28 degrees.

 

A happy Croc at Chester Zoo.

 

Do You Want a Better Landscape For your Garden? Try Using a Weed Control Fabric

The growing concern over the haphazard and inconsiderate use of herbicides has caused professionals and domestic gardeners to find alternative ways for weed control. One such way is the use of a weed control fabric. Being of a woven finish, these fabrics allow water and gas exchange, while at the same time significantly reducing light penetration. This effectively reduces weed seed germination.

In choosing a fabric for weed control, you should go for the widest fabric available in the shop. The wider the fabric, the less overlaps there will be. In addition, if you want your sheet to last for years, get the one that is UV stabilised. That way, the fabric’s longevity is increased because it is protected from direct sunlight.

Installation Guidelines

Before installing the weed control fabric, shear off the grass in the area and then use a rake to flatten the bumps and dips on the ground. Aside from flattening the ground, also remove any sharp and pointed objects to avoid puncturing and damaging the fabric.

A weed control, fixing peg (also known as ground staple), is also needed for the installation to serve as an anchor for the fabric. For very soft to medium grounds a plastic peg should be used, while the metal pegs are used for hard or stony surfaces.

The ground staples available at allplas.co.uk are made of galvanised steel to ensure the stability of the item.

How to Plant Trees and other Ornaments

Once the weed control fabric has been laid and anchored in position, simply cut a small ‘x’ on the fabric at a the point where you want to plant the trees. Start by cutting small portions to prevent the fabric from damage. However, you can still cut it according to the size of the tree or plant that you wish to place in the garden. After cutting the fabric, peel back the fabric, plant the seedling, push the fabric back and its done.

The Final Touch

Once you are done with planting, you may cover the weed control sheet with mulch or stones. In the instance that you are using a non-woven fabric, stones, bark and mulch are necessary to provide added protection from the sunlight. However, if you are using a woven, heavy-duty fabric there is no need to take these measures unless you prefer to do so for creative purposes. The heavy-duty, weed control fabric is also available in different sizes from allplas.co.uk
