Steel wire rope net is the most common type of rockfall barrier, including galvanized wire rope net and PVC coated wire rope net. The wire ropes are intersected and fixed by clips and they have higher tensile strength than the steel wires. The steel wire rope can be used individually to block large stones. However, it's often used with chain link fence or hexagonal wire mesh together to block both large and small rocks. In addition, steel wire rope net can also decorate the dull mountains or surrounding environments and give people a beautiful view.
Steel wire rope net can be used as active rockfall barrier or passive rockfall barrier. With excellent adaptability, it can be installed on the soil, stone slopes to block landslide, debris flow, snow avalanche and other natural hazard. Besides, it can also be used for boulder stones and collapse rocks reinforcing to protect people's safety.
