Rockfall protection screens
Rockfall protection screens stop rocks ranging in size from a few dm3 to several m3 (100 to 5000 kJ).
These deformable screens are designed to intercept rocks and may be fitted with braking systems. To check their performance levels and increase their efficiency, they are continually tested in the presence of independent organisations.
A draft European standard is currently being validated with a view to defining and regulating the use of rockfall protection screens.
They are particularly fast to install and offer protection at a reasonable cost. While their particular geometry may vary, they all consist of:
Location: After an inventory of the unstable rocks, the energy absorption capacity (class), height and location of the rockfall protection screens are defined using a trajectography software. This is carried out by an independent design office approved by us.
