Lightweight drip tape 1Tape

The 1Tape® lightweight integral driptape represent the latest innovation in the field of drip irrigation systems: 1Tape® is the only drip tape in the world with super narrow spacing (5 cm) between the emitters.

It is a drip tape with a continuous turbulent flow labyrinth welded to the pipe wall. The 1Tape® dispensing openings are created mechanically and therefore without any removal of material, this allows for hermetic closure of the dispensing slot at the end of the irrigation cycle, preventing unwanted intrusions of particles inside the pipe

1Tape® is particularly suitable for draining soils thanks to the very close delivery points, and is also suitable for irrigating open-field crops as well as crops on covered soil.

Its use is ideal in flower crops such as roses or carnations, and in horticultural plantations such as: onion, garlic, celery, tomato, carrots, potato, cucumber, courgette, aubergine, pepper, strawberry, melon, watermelon and many others.

Advantages 1Tape Soaplast

  • Delivery openings created without removing material allow perfect closure of the slot at the end of the irrigation cycle, thus avoiding the intrusion of particles;
  • Increase in irrigated surface area and greater homogeneity thanks to the super narrow spacing between one delivery point and another
  • Less water dispersion in the presence of sandy soils
  • Excellent resistance to clogging thanks to well-designed inlet filters and good turbulent labyrinth flow that creates a self-cleaning effect even at low operating pressures
  • Excellent emission uniformity over the entire length of the line
  • Low pressure sensitivity
  • Low technological coefficient of variation.


  • Crops in open field
  • Greenhouse crops
  • Horticulture
  • Floriculture
