CLIFF CONSOLIDATION

PROTECTION FOR ROCKY SLOPES

Cliff consolidation may be necessary following episodes of natural rock erosion, to prevent the unexpected detachment of rock from mountain ridges, landslides and stones falling onto roadways and settled areas.

The safety containment of cliff faces occurs following human interventions which may have provoked hydrogeological instability. These include the creation of steep slopes following excavations and fractures on cliff faces for extraction or construction purposes, cases of low soil consistency where construction has occurred, or in the event of logging and withdrawal of inert materials from mountainous areas.

MESH, GABIONS AND PROTECTIVE ROCKFALL STRUCTURES

Arrigo Gabbioni Italia S.R.L., based in Lecco, manufactures rockfall protection structures, developing the most suitable types of gabions and anti-rockfall mesh depending on their use:

  • containment works for falling rocks
  • containment structures for waterways
  • underpinning
  • avalanche protection

 

PROTECTION AGAINST SMALL AND LARGE ROCKFALLS

The width and flexibility of wire mesh varies depending on the type of application. For example, for the consolidation of large unstable rock masses, or to protect roads from the precipitation of small rubble.

Our Lecco-based company supplies galvanised and plasticised fencing, providing protection against corrosive effects and increasing the durability of fabricated structures. For information relating to foundation and soil consolidations, call us on +39 0341 634 776.
