Rockfall Protection Netting
In the field of slope stabilization, the use of double
twist hexagonal mesh allows the engineer to choose from
a wide range of structural solutions adapted to suit
the specific situation. Moreover, installations of this
type are highly efficient and economic.
The classical distinction made in works of this type
is that between "active" and "passive"
measures. Active measures are those that act on the
causes of a phenomenon and inhibit its initiation. Passive
measures, on the other hand, are those that hinder or
control rock-falls or avalanches to protect the infrastructure
below the slopes, such as roads, railways, buildings.
Slope protections consisting of netting can be subdivided
into two main categories:
Protection against rock-falls
• single layer of netting
• reinforced netting
• impermeable netting
• netting with vegetation cover
• vertical flexible catch fences
Protection against avalanches
• elastic snow fences
