    Meet us

Welcome to an expert talk on debris flow and open hillslope debris flow protection nets.

The Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL published a new practical guide in 2021 on these particular net types.
For the first time ever, this document groups more than 15 years of expert knowledge on for example areas of use, design principles, and maintenance of net technology protecting from a mixture of solids and water.

Co-author of the publication Matthias Denk (Msc. Env. Eng.) will give you an overview of the content of this practical guide and how you can use it best for your projects. There will be case studies and time for discussion. We recommend downloading and/or printing the document prior to the webinar.
