Debris flow barrier VX By GEOBRUGG
Protective mesh against debris flows
Debris flow barrier VX: A cost-effective solution for narrow V-shaped torrents
Our flexible ring net barriers are able to withstand significant dynamic and static loads caused by debris flows or mudflows. They have undergone testing and proven their abilities as a complete system in debris flow tests replicating real-life conditions. We offer two different types of debris flow barrier systems, depending on the channel properties. VX barriers are used in narrow torrents and are anchored in the channel flanks using wire rope anchors or flexible anchor heads. This type of structure is suitable for spans of up to 15 m and construction heights of up to 6 m.
RING NET MADE FROM HIGH-TENSILE STEEL WIRE
Optimum combination of stability and flexibility. The barrier absorbs high dynamic and static loads, allowing the net to retain its protective effect even when full of debris.
COMPLETE SYSTEMS TESTED
Our barriers are the only debris flow protection solutions to have been tested in large-scale field tests under an extremely wide range of conditions.
SIMPLE TO INSTALL
Lightweight components reduce the amount of work required during transport and construction. Difficult earthwork is not required and the barriers are easy to adapt to any terrain, offering extra time and cost savings.
DEBFLOW DIMENSIONING TOOL
Thanks to the quickand efficient dimensioning provided by our special tool, reliable functioning is guaranteed, even with multilevel barriers.
CORROSION AND ABRASION PROTECTION
Our corrosion protection concept ensures a long lifetime and low system maintenance costs. At exposed points, the ropes are fitted with abrasion protection, which can easily be replaced as necessary.
