Rockfall Protection Mesh
Rockfall protection fence is a key element in the security and safety of infrastructure, mine works, buildings, or people. Even minor rockfalls flows can restrict the infrastructure and can have major economic effects. This also applies to buildings or other installations that are at risk of damage.
Rockfall protection embankments are structured in such a manner that it proves to be an ideal solution when surface stabilization systems cannot be uploaded or where falling rocks can’t be interpreted. Rockfall nettings are commonly used as protection from natural hazards, landslides, rockfalls, avalanches, hydro-geologic problems, and more.
How do they work?
They are designed to stabilize the layer of snow at the potential avalanche zone, thereby provides safety from the avalanche.
The snow-pack exerts a force which is absorbed by the prevention nets and transmitted to the ground through a system of fence posts and anchors. The flexibility of our fence system results in reducing the load exerted upon the structure, enabling an efficient installation.
The inhabitants of mountain areas have always been affected by the risk of avalanche. The need to live alongside this threat has led to the construction of avalanche protection barriers.
The increasing risk of avalanche:
Deforestation and the increase of tourists in these regions have resulted in the reduction of the natural barriers and consequently, the triggering of avalanches.
You will find yourself working in a true partnership that results in an incredible experience, and an end product that is the best.
