From Civil Sector
Prevention of rockfalls is often extremely difficult owing to site access and the extent of the instability. The concept behind a protection system is the combination of risk analysis and the right choice of systems. To respond to the different problems associated with instability of rock faces, Maccaferri has developed a range of Rockfall mitigation systems to meet these specific requirements and to assist the designer in the selection of products to be used. A key distinction must be made between 'active' and 'passive' protection systems.
