SPIDER® Avalanche: Flexible avalanche prevention structure made from high-tensile spiral rope nets

SPIDER® Avalanche: Flexible avalanche prevention structure made from high-tensile spiral rope nets

The flexible avalanche prevention structure made from high-tensile spiral rope nets (SPIDER® Avalanche) is based on the globally recognized guidelines for defense structures in avalanche starting zones, issued by the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (BAFU) and the Swiss Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research (SLF).

Benefits

Dual purpose, high-tensile steel wire

Suitable for rockfall protection

SPIDER® Avalanche safeguards against multiple hazards: Tests have proven that during
snow-free periods, our avalanche prevention structures also offer protection against rockfall
with energies up to 500 kJ.

Low weight, easy installation

Light and easy to install

The low weight is extremely advantageous for installing avalanche protection systems
and makes cost-effective logistics operations possible. If being installed by helicopter,
up to three posts and three main nets can be transported in each rotation.

Gapless structure

Gap-free structure

Uncompromising safety: SPIDER® Avalanche forms a uniform protective surface without
gaps or openings which reaches to the ground and retains both, rockfalls and large
quantities of snow.

No baseplate anchoring

Pressure plates without anchoring

Ultra simple installation and low anchoring costs are what makes SPIDER® Avalanche
so unique. The pressure plates approved in accordance with the SLF (Swiss Institute for
Snow and Avalanche Research) are suitable particulary for soft soil and creeping slopes.

Cutting edge corrosion protection

Corrosion protection for the future

Long service life and low maintenance costs: The Geobrugg corrosion protection concept
ensures systems that are built to last for generations.

Non-flammable

Unlike protection solutions made of wood, SPIDER® Avalanche is entirely made out of steel
and can easily withstand smaller grass fires and brush fires.
