Initial situation

After the severe 2018 Eagle Creek fire, a T35 rockfall barrier was utilized for temporary rockfall protection for the I-84 interstate during a larger scaling operation and TECCO® drape installation. Triptych Construction in conjunction with the Oregon Department of Transportation utilized Geobrugg North America's novel modification attaching the standard low energy T35 rockfall barrier to common concrete guardrail. 

Description

The T35 system is independently tested in 1:1 full-scale test for rockfall up to 35 kJ providing easy to install, cost-effective rockfall protection. The standard post has been redesigned to attach to standard concrete guardrail and available for quick supply and installation by qualified contractors.
