Tyrol/Austria, July 10th: Geobrugg carries out the final acceptance at 9 a.m. Five hours later: A 7.5-ton rock comes down towards a hiking trail and a country road. And is easily stopped by the RXE-500-LA barrier. This system provides easy installation, low anchor forces; and absolute reliability.
***Update*** The system is mainly intact, essential elements such as posts and brakes are undamaged. Only half a field of the ring net, individual rings and a field of the secondary (fine) mesh have to be replaced. The system will, therefore, very quickly provide unlimited safety again.
