Extension of EBA approval (German railways) for spiral rope anchors and flex heads

31 Julho 2023

In June 2023, we received an extension of the approval from the German Federal Railway Authority (EBA) for our Geobrugg spiral rope anchors and flex heads for micropiles as construction products for use on federal railways. More information can be found in our download center.

Flexible safety structures protect against rockfall, avalanches, debris flows and hillslope debris flows and also find a wide range of applications in the stabilization of rock and loose rock slopes.

The flexibility of the systems slows down the deceleration process and reduces the forces that have to be introduced into the subsoil. In order to be able to transfer the forces into the ground without reducing the load-bearing capacity, it is advantageous if the anchoring system is also flexible.
