Mapal offer a range of Trough/Gutter systems that can be custom made to suit application requirements.  The process of scoring the Polyethylene sheets during the manufacturing process, allows the proposed end product to be made up in a number of ways determined by the score lines.  Wall heights, and base widths can be manipulated and scored to customer requirements beforehand.  These finished products arrive flat-packed, for assembly on site.  This flat-packed method allows for ease and economy of bulk shipments, as well as future storage.

The pre-scored Trough systems offered by Mapal has proved to be very popular with growers around the world.  It offers an easy means of laying out a simple Trough based system for short to medium term cropping requirements, which can later be removed and stored.  The use of a Coir based substrate is commonly used to fill the troughs, which are usually supplied in block form and wetted to expand and fit into the Trough.

This concept of simplicity and flexibility mixed in with proven results has seen markets all around the world adopt the Mapal Trough systems in many different growing arenas.

The application of Roses in terms of Cut Flower Production is one of these markets.  As can be seen, the Kenyan Rose Market have taken this concept on board in production of flowers, with exceptional results.  The Mapal Trough system is cost effective, and easy to install, where the Kenyan's have taken the initiative a step further and developed, along with Mapal's guidance, a means of supporting the system off the ground.
