Rockfall protection and rock slope protection on steep areas that are prone to falling rock and debris is an important part of the work carried out by GSS.
The safety of the public can be seriously threatened when local cliff faces and rock slopes are exposed or degraded. This can cause rocks to buckle, slide, fall, or topple down onto roads, paths, and railway tracks, causing serious access and transportation issues.
Dangerous rock slides can be avoided with rockfall and rock slope protection which is achieved through passive mitigation or active mitigation.
Passive mitigation utilises rockfall protection netting, rockfall catchment fences, diversion dams and other rockfall protection systems, to ensure that when a rockfall occurs, the fall is contained and/or diverted to protect lives and maintain infrastructure.
Active mitigation, on the other hand, 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:
The professional team from GSS has more than fifteen years of experience in designing and implementing rock slope and rockfall protection solutions.
Working throughout North America and the Asia Pacific, GSS has used the latest techniques, innovations and technologies to increase the safety of residents in rockfall prone areas, maintain transport access on railways, and contain sudden rockslides.
