Cultivation and tunnel mats

Our cultivation mats for tunnels are produced with the very greatest care due to the extreme forces exerting on them. The mats have reinforced sides and are produced using state-of-the-art techniques, ensuring that any stretching or shrinkage is kept to a minimum, while at the same time not reducing elasticity in any way.


  • high resistance to stretching
  • excellent breathability
  • energy-efficient
  • high quality
  • attractive price

We also offer anti-friction mats for placing underneath tunnel mats.

Cultivation mats
Cultivation mats are made from single-yarn polyethylene fabric.
You can select the appropriate quality to the length and width of the frame and weight. Mertens offers four types all tailored to the length of the frame. Other widths not mentioned here are available on request.

Tunnel and Friction-reduction mats
Our tunnel mats allow tunnels to be emptied quickly and efficiently for substrate production. The mats are made from high-quality polyethylene fabric and are not subject to shrinkage. The length of each roll of fabric varies. Weight: 850 grams per m2.

Friction-reduction mats under tunnel mats, thus not only increasing the life-span of the tunnel mat but also significantly reducing resistance: the friction co-efficient is reduced from 0.8 to 0.25. Mats are available in a width of 500cm and in every length you may require.
