Debris flow barrier UX: A cost-effective solution for wider, U-shaped torrents

Debris flow barrier UX: A cost-effective solution for wider, U-shaped torrents

Our flexible ring net barriers are able to withstand demanding dynamic and static loads caused by debris flows or mudflows. They have undergone testing and proven their abilities as a complete system in debris flow tests replicating real-life conditions. We offer two types of debris flow barrier systems, depending on the channel properties and the project requirements. The UX series systems are debris flow barriers designed for larger torrents. Two posts in the channel bed spread the high-tensile ROCCO® net, while wire rope anchors or flexible anchor heads ensure load transmission to the ground at the sides. This type of structure is suitable for widths of up to 25 m and construction heights of up to 6 m.

Benefits
