RB Pedestrian is a tree root bridge system suitable for landscaped urban areas subject to pedestrian traffic. It is part of the RootBridge range of tree root bridges from Green Grid.

RB Pedestrian can accommodate a wide range of soil conditions and has a low overall depth. A heel-safe mesh grid can also be incorporated as an option, or the installation can be overlaid with paving or asphalt.

Key features

  • For use on pedestrian walkways near existing trees
  • Suitable for a variety of soil conditions
  • 3.5kN load capacity
  • 65mm low overall depth
  • Overlaid with paving or GRP
  • Optional heel-safe mesh grid
  • Laid in 1m x 1m sections

Root bridge system

RootBridge is designed to prevent soil compaction and root damage to existing trees within the root protection zone. It consists of a steel framework that provides a stable sub-construction that bridges the root zone and allows heavy loads to be supported across pedestrian and vehicular areas. The steel framework houses mesh grids that ensure natural water drainage, and the finished installation can also be overlaid with asphalt or paving.

Other key benefits of RootBridge include its high load-bearing capacity and low structure height, which enable minimum impact during construction.
