The innovative and sustainable water storage for your plants!

athletic fields, soccer fields

Athletic fields in particular are extremely stressed and require optimal, sustainable and easy-care greenery. Therefore, both the BLUELITE-NET, the LITE-STRIPS – mainly as water storage – and LITE-NET – mainly for water distribution – are used here, as irrigation for athletic fields.

The BLUELITE-NET is an ideal solution if the athletic field is also to be played on or mowed during irrigation and a permanent irrigation solution is desired.

Conventional underground drip irrigation has disadvantages such as root ingrowth or blockage due to soil fines, damage to the pipe or uneven irrigation in complex soil structures. It is precisely to eliminate these disadvantages that the BLUELITE-NET system offers a sophisticated solution for water-saving subsurface irrigation for athletic fields.

The cost-effective combination consists of 2 elements: A voluminous nonwoven net (LITE-NET) with a high pore content and a fleece-protected irrigation hose (BLUELITE-TUBE) laid directly on top. Substrate is applied root-deep on top of this.

The water from the flexible drip irrigation tube is distributed longitudinally in the nonwoven covering evenly delivered to the LITE-NET nonwoven net underneath, where it is distributed capillary over a large area in the root zone. The contact surface between water and soil is multiplied by a factor of a thousand. The robust nonwoven cover protects the drippers against root ingrowth and against blockage by soil fines.

Due to the open and flexible net shape, roots can easily grow through the approx. 13 cm large openings and dock all around the thick nonwoven net This means that 100 % of the capillary water stored in the net is available to the plants when needed. Liquid fertiliser can also be applied very effectively to the roots. Since the system can be laid at any depth, plants can also be optimally supplied in the vegetation phase or in mixed crops. The nonwoven nets are very flexible, easy to cut, over 5 m wide and therefore easy and quick to lay. The 16 mm drip tubes have pressure-compensated drippers at a distance of 33 or 50 cm with a flow rate of approx. 2l/h. The pipes are laid at a distance of approx. 60 cm.

With the LITE-NET, effective underground irrigation for atheltic fields can be implemented very easily at root level.

It can be raised to the surface in places, where it absorbs rainwater and then distributes or stores it underground in the root zone. The LITE-NET not only stores water, but also distributes air and water over a large area and evenly at root level.

It acts like a network of veins for the soil, whereby plants can easily grow through the network openings. This is why the LITE-NET can be inserted at any depth or, if necessary, in waves

The LITE-STRIPS,on the other hand, can be mixed into the soil in addition to or independently of the other products.

Either they are mixed into the soil above the LITE-NET or the BLUELITE-NET system (but also alone).

They increase the permeability, stability and water storage capacity of the base layer. They serve as a substrate enhancement for the lawn, transporting water quickly from the surface to the roots, distributing and storing it on site. This creates a kind of permanent aeration with reduced soil compaction and surface matting.

Installation

LITE-NET

Lay the spread LITE-NET watering net PP over the entire surface on a layer of soil and apply soil over it down to the depth of the roots. Depending on the biodegradability or for a permanent solution, choose between the following products:

 

LITE-NET Bio1 10 ,4 m2 + LITE-NET Bio1 28 m2

LITE-NET BIo5 10,4 m2 + LITE-NET Bio5 28 m2

LITE-NET PP 10,4 m2 + LITE-NET PP 28 m2

LITE-STRIPS

LITE-STRIPS Bio5 orLITE-STRIPS PP function as an additional water storage at root depth and loosen the soil. Mix an additional approx. 0.5 – 1 l/m² of LITE-STRIPS into the substrate per m².

Depending on the biodegradability or for a permanent solution, choose between the following products:

LITE-STRIPS Bio1 2,5 l + LITE-STRIPS Bio1 10 l + LITE-STRIPS Bio1 25

LITE-STRIPS Bio5 2,5 l + LITE-STRIPS Bio5 10 l + LITE-STRIPS Bio5 25 l

LITE-STRIPS PP 2,5 l + LITE-STRIPS PP 10 l + LITE-STRIPS PP 25 l

The 2.5 l bag is sufficient for up to 50 l of soil, the 10 l box for up to 200 l of soil, the 25 l bag for up to 500 l of soil.
