Rockfall impact attenuators - intercept and guide rockfall safely

Rockfall impact attenuators - intercept and guide rockfall safely

Rockfall Impact Attenuator Systems are a rockfall protection solution combining rockfall drapes and flexible rockfall barriers. The hybrid system is used as a passive protection measure: The cable net barrier breaks the fall and the drape steers the rocks into the runout zone - it works as a deflector. The Attenuator System combines the proven strengths of both the barrier and drape to provide low maintenance protection. See also the Hybrid Drapery section from Rockfall Characterization And Control, TRB (Transportation Research Board), 2012.
