Rockfall Protection

TAG: Green Terramesh, Gabion Box, Gabion Mats

In times past, the danger represented by falling rocks and by rocky debris from slopes overhanging the road side was not given the requisite consideration. Land was not at the premium it is today since traffic volume and patterns have changed drastically. In recent years, however, the widening of existing roads and the opening of new roads and highways must accommodate modern transportation demands. For this reason we are faced with the problems of protecting the road side from rock slides in a safe and efficient manner.

Our high resistance gabion products, especially rockfall mitigation nettings, are ideally suited for difficult solutions to rock face problems, since the double-twist, hexagonal-woven mesh does not unravel when wires abrade. Fractured stones are trapped and confined against the slope should isolated wires fatigue from prolonged stress. Additionally, this double-twisted hexagonal type of netting has the high mechanical resistance required to prevent the danger of sudden rock shock loads and dissipate rock fall energy created from loose fractured rock. The main advantages over other types of mesh are the features of flexibility, non-raveling design, superior corrosion resistance and unique mechanical characteristics.
