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.
Rockfall mitigation netting is ideally suited for difficult solutions to rock face problems, since the double-twist, hexagonal-woven mesh do 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.
Rockfall mitigation netting is available galvanized or galvanized with PVC coated. For custom orders only, the PVC may be available in different colors, such as gray, black, and brown and tan.
