Rockfall netting and barriers can be applied efficiently, safely and quickly by the experienced team from Ground Stabilisation Systems.
To secure the mesh in place, an experienced team is critical to correctly identify the exact points of the rock for anchors to be put in place. This ensures the process won’t cause further cracks or damage to the rock face.
The main aspects of rockfall meshing can be categorised into active and passive systems.
Areas and environments that may require the use of high energy absorption rockfall mesh include:
In a similar fashion to rockfall mesh, rock catch fences/barriers provide stability and safety to areas prone to falling rocks.
Rock catch fences provide stand-alone protection whilst rockfall mesh needs to be molded to the rock. This requires an experienced team in often very steep and dangerous terrains to install correctly and guarantee durability.
Rock catch fences are used when fall conditions are unpredictable but still require security and safety measures.
It is most often used in:
Rockfall barriers are tested and designed through stringent rockfall analysis, assessed to withstand extreme impact in all weather conditions
