Rockfallbarrier Corporation produces complete protection systems against rockfall, unstable rock and loose rock slopes, landslides, debris flow and avalanches. At the same time we support the ordering party, planner and building contractor with our know-how from related spheres of application - also with respect to combined protection measures. With production facilities on three continents as well as branch offices and representatives around the globe, Rockfallbarrier Corporation is always close to its customers. So "close to customer relations" are not limited to sales but covers the entire process chain.

Only field tests really ensure true protection
The performance of Rockfallbarrier Corporation protection systems are not only calculated. We test our systems according to the world's most rigorous directives in 1:1 field tests with impact and tearing tests. At the same time the performance parameters of all system components are regularly monitored by independent testing institutions.

Project and risk-related
There are no standard solutions for complex threat situations. That is why we analyze every hazard situation prior to developing individual and often totally new protection systems, based on highly specialized know-how from 50 years of steel wire processing.

Simulation software as a basis for dimensioning
Our FARO software is verified and calibrated through 1:1 tests. With this we can represent which parts of a structure are stressed with which forces in an event. The results of this simulation are incorporated in the dimensioning of the protection measures - for instance in the shape of special anchorages or reduced post intervals.
