At Landquart, Switzerland, the Rhaetian Railway (RhB) operates a wood loading station.
Parallel to this loading station runs one of the central north-south traffic axes of the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB). This SBB line had to be protected from falling logs or small parts.
Today, a fence prevents logs from falling onto the SBB line.
Geobrugg supplied and installed the complete system: the net, ropes, and all fastening components.
Our client, TOLDO AG, constructed the steel supports including the foundations. Geobrugg then fastened the ropes and mounted the high-strength Geobrugg braid on these ropes with a mobile lifting platform.
A second layer with a conventional wire mesh fence prevents smaller pieces of wood from falling onto the SBB line.
