Rockfall protection systems need an approach that encompasses the overall analysis of the structure system, and not just the individual components. The world “system” is the best description, as it embraces the different structural components which interact with one another.
A key distinction must be made between
active and passive protection systems.
The planning, construction and maintenance of these structures must take into account their durability. In accordance with these concepts — Ocean Caraibes experience in this field is coupled with Maccaferri, the world’s leading manufacture of material and Maccaferri ‘s corporate orientation toward research and innovation.
Types of Rockfall Systems
Passive systems are those which do not affect the process of the rock detaching, but rather focus
on containing falling debris, thereby averting danger for the infrastructure and its users.
