RXE barriers: Maximum energy absorption combined with minimum deflection

RXE barriers: Maximum energy absorption combined with minimum deflection

Our RXE-500 to RXE-8000 rockfall protection barriers come into their own in applications that present the risk of large blocks breaking loose and travelling with significant force and energy. The permitted energy absorption capacity is as high as 8,000 kJ, equating to a weight of 20 tons traveling at over 100 km/h – a world record in this sector. Because of its capacity for maximum energy absorption, the RXE has set the standard for low deflection levels.

Benefits

High-tensile steel wire net

High-tensile steel wire net

Protection against dynamic loads of up to 8000 kJ. Some of the energy is dissipated by means of elastic/plastic net deformation while the majority is dissipated by the braking elements.

Low deformation

Low deformation

Testing that replicates field conditions has confirmed that this solution offers the lowest deflection on the market. This makes it ideal for installing in close proximity to at-risk objects.

Pre-assembled

Pre-assembled

The posts are delivered to the construction site as modules with pre-installed bundles of netting for easy installation (RXE-500 to RXE-3000 systems). This significantly reduces the installation time.

Highest standards worldwide

Highest standards worldwide

The only barriers to have been tested and approved according to ETAG 027 and in vertical free fall according to FOEN, the strictest regulation in the world.

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.
