FilterSleeve™ - Circular Knitted Filter

Filter Sleeve™ is a tested and proven solution for protecting subsoil drains from sedimentation.

Filter Sleeve is a readily available, cost-effective and proven filter making it an ideal choice for protection of perforated pipe.

Manufactured as a three-dimensional knitted fabric, Filter Sleeve is supplied in a seamless length to fit the broad range of pipe sizes available.

Filter Sleeve works by trapping the soil particles and assisting the formation of a soil filter around the pipe.

Produced in New Zealand, Cirtex® uses strict ISO 9001 quality controlled certified procedures as the performance of the product is dependent on the accurate formation of the knit structure and pore sizes. Choose Cirtex Filter Sleeve for dependable results.
