Rock catch fencing and barriers

Rock catch fencing and barriers are passive systems, designed to arrest and contain falling debris and rocks from steep slopes and rock faces.

These systems are most often seen in Europe where they are often deployed in alpine regions. However the theory and practice is the same — be it Europe or Australia.

These innovative safety systems are gaining popularity because they significantly reduce the risk of damage to people and property by capturing and containing mobile rocks and debris.

Typical applications include the protection of roads, buildings, and public areas below natural cliffs, embankments, or man-made cuttings.

The advantages of Concrib rock catch fencing and barriers include:

  1. Custom-built designs
  2. Our design/construct system is a proprietary product of the reputable Maccaferri Pty.Ltd. Each barrier system is custom-designed to meet the unique requirements of a particular application.

  3. Exceptional deformation and energy absorption capabilities
  4. Rock catch fencing and barriers are usually rated according to their energy absorption capabilities. For example, a barrier rated at 500 kJ (kilojoules), has ability to arrest a one tonne boulder travelling at 100kph.  Concrib supplies barriers with ratings up to 5000kJ (as much as ten times this strength).

    Each barrier consists of a complex arrangement of steel cables, anchoring points, and energy absorbing devices, and offers a high degree of deformation and energy absorption.
