This report by Rai, one major Italian TV station, shows from minute 2:30 how Geobrugg tests rockfall barriers. It explains in a exemplary way why our high-tensile nets are so important for natural hazards mitigation and how the installation of rockfall barriers (mostly Tecco® slope stabilization) in Italy is being carried out. For those who don't speak Italian - the pictures are self-explanatory: 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.

Kto chce się dowiedzieć, jaką rolę w kopalniach odgrywają zabezpieczenia przed naturalnymi zagrożeniami, może wirtualnie przenieść się do australijskiej kopalni Kanmantoo, oglądając ten film wideo lub czytając raport z realizacji projektu. Liczne strome ściany wymagają intensywnego zarządzania zagrożeniami związanymi z odłamkami skalnymi, w ramach którego oprócz klasycznych barier stosuje się także środki aktywnej stabilizacji skarp, systemy hybrydowe (ATTENUATOR) lub kurtyny skalne.
