GBE barriers: Highly cost-effective barriers thanks to simple installation

GBE barriers: Highly cost-effective barriers thanks to simple installation

Featuring high-tensile steel wire and an exceptionally straightforward installation method, this product is setting a new standard in the field of rockfall protection barriers. Our GBE barriers, designed for impact energy levels of up to 3,000 kJ, are delivered to construction sites preassembled for quick installation onto support posts. All barriers meet the requirements of the ETAG-027 category A – the highest category of this guideline.

Benefits

High-tensile steel wire mesh

High-tensile steel wire mesh

Protection against dynamic and point loads of up to 3,000 kJ. Some of the energy is dissipated by means of elastic/plastic net deformation while the majority is dissipated by the braking elements.

Low anchor forces

Low anchor forces

Short anchors are sufficient. This significantly lowers drilling time during installation and
therefore the overall costs of the project.

Pre assembled

Pre-assembled

The posts are delivered to the construction site as modules with pre-installed bundles of mesh. This significantly reduces the installation time as well as making the process easier.

High safety standards

High safety standards

Our barriers fulfill the ETAG-027 guidelines, most of them bear the CE mark, and are tested according to the most demanding method in vertical free fall.

Stainless steel u-brake

Stainless steel U-brake

This component enables linear energy dissipation and is easily accessible for inspection and maintenance. Stainless steel makes the brake extremely durable even when subjected to strain.

Light and unobtrusive

Light and unobtrusive

The low weight of the barrier means that it can be easily installed. With its high-tensile steel wire and innovative design, this solution conserves materials, protects the environment and is virtually invisible from a distance.

First class corrosion protection

First-class corrosion protection

The corrosion protection of our systems will last for generations. This means that our customers benefit from particularly low maintenance costs.
