Rockfall Barriers & Rockfall Netting

High energy absorption mesh can be applied and securely fixed to the rock face by strong anchor points to prevent rocks and debris falling.

Rockfall netting prevents rocks from crumbling and falling from cliff faces and open cut mines.

Rockfall netting and barriers can be applied efficiently, safely and quickly by the experienced team from Ground Stabilisation Systems.

To secure the mesh in place, an experienced team is critical to correctly identify the exact points of the rock for anchors to be put in place. This ensures the process won’t cause further cracks or damage to the rock face.

We use the finest materials in rockfall stabilisation, MACCAFERRI™ and Geobrugg™, industry leaders in providing specialist engineering products for slope reinforcement and rockfall protection.

How We Work

The main aspects of rockfall meshing can be categorised into active and passive systems.

  • Active systems that limit the excessive movement once a rock detachment has occurred. The steel wire and steel cable meshes are anchored into a rock slope to provide stability and a solid foundation to prevent further damage.
  • Passive systems are systems that intercept falling debris to control and direct the falling rocks away from potential damage. These include; mesh drapery systems and reinforced rockfall embankments.

Areas and environments that may require the use of high energy absorption rockfall mesh include:

  • Road embankments
  • Cliff faces
  • Rail corridors
  • Unstable slopes and erosion control
  • Mines with high walls or are open-cut
  • Buildings being demolished in sections
  • Retaining walls

In a similar fashion to rockfall mesh, rock catch fences/barriers provide stability and safety to areas prone to falling rocks.
