We rocked!

30 April 2015

In an old stone pit high above Lake Walen in Eastern Switzerland, one of our RXE rockfall protection barriers underwent an endurance test. The barrier was supposed to withstand a block of 6.4 tons. To demonstrate the danger of rockfall, two rocks of different weights were dropped on two cars – with devastating results. The good news: Our barrier passed the test with flying colors, the rocks precisely hit the net. TVO, the Eastern Swiss TV station, was at the scene and allows us to review the impact of the crash in slow motion (report in Swiss German) – you will be surprised and struck with awe.
