Rockfall Protection

Slope ground stabilisation is crucial to prevent rockfall and slopes slipping, similarly to rockfall services and control.

Rockfall protection services are often required in steep areas where rock and soil slips pose a threat to the environment.

Rockfall protection is an important part of the work carried out by Ground Stabilisation Systems. Public safety can be seriously threatened when cliff faces are exposed and degraded, often causing rocks to buckle, slide, fall, or topple down the exposed area onto roads, paths and railway tracks.

Rockfall protection can be achieved by passive mitigation or active mitigation. Passive mitigation utilises drape nets, rockfall/debris catchment fences, diversion dams, to ensure that when a rockfall occurs, the fall is contained and/or diverted to protect lives and infrastructure.

Mitigation

Passive mitigation utilises drape nets, rockfall/debris catchment fences, and diversion dams to ensure that when a rockfall occurs, the fall is contained and/or diverted to protect lives and infrastructure.

Active mitigation can involve various techniques designed to stabilise and retain rockfall prone areas.

Complex geotechnical solutions are often employed to stabilise these areas, including but not limited to:

Using the latest innovations and technology including the most advanced equipment and specialised products, GSS has successfully undertaken numerous rockfall protection projects on behalf of our vast diverse clients.
