Questo servizio della Rai, una delle maggiori emittenti televisive italiane, mostra dal minuto 2:30 come Geobrugg testa le barriere paramassi. Il servizio spiega in modo esemplare perché le nostre reti ad alta resistenza sono così importanti per la mitigazione dei rischi naturali e come viene effettuata l'installazione di barriere paramassi (per lo più sistemi di stabilizzazione Tecco®) in Italia. Per chi non parla italiano - le immagini non richiedono spiegazioni: video.

Flexible debris flow nets were developed within a three-year Ph.D. thesis by Wendeler in 2008. Since then, they have been used all over the world for debris flow protection or slope/riverbed stabilization. Some have already been filled a couple of times. Today, we present the first research on a serviceability method for scour and erosion issues on flexible debris flow nets. Design and calculation will be more economically and safely, maintenance costs will be minimized and a longer lifetime of the entire barrier system, including anchors as the most cost-intensive parts, can be provided. Impressions of the small field tests.
