Sheds and galleries
We build avalanche protection sheds and galleries using our TechSpan® precast arches, which have proven to be efficient for avalanche protection applications. For adjoining retaining walls to be built within narrow excavation limits, we often design using T-Wall™ precast modular retaining walls because of the narrow footprint of this solution.
Rockfall protection barriers
Our passive rockfall protection barriers are made of MSE walls for rockfall protection that can be metallic, non-metallic and/or composite materials. The main purpose of these barriers is to catch rocks, boulders, shooting stones or other debris that can be flowing or falling due to natural causes and subsequently avoid damage to infrastructure and prevent disruptions such as traffic blockages. Our MSE walls for rockfall protection have an ability to withstand energy impacts typically up to 5000kJ.
RECo’s passive rockfall protection barriers can be used as an efficient alternative to more traditional and costly mitigation measures while offering many benefits:
- Cost efficient compared to similar rigid barriers
- Effective for confined and open channels
- Easy to clean out and maintain
- Does not affect sediment flow under non-event conditions
- Low aesthetic impact on the landscape
