Avalanche protection barriers: advanced protection against snow avalanches

Avalanche protection barriers, also known as anti-avalanche barriers or snow containment systems, are solutions for attenuating and controlling snow slides.

These barriers are especially crucial in mountainous regions, where avalanches and snow slides pose a significant and constant risk to people’s safety and infrastructure integrity.

The importance of avalanche protection barriers

Avalanche protection barriers are a key system for the protection of lives and infrastructure, acting as a protective shield against the devastating effects of snow avalanches.

They are protection systems against the action of large snow masses that, due to the energy of the movement generated by an initial slide, reach great speeds. These systems act by intercepting the slide’s trajectory, absorbing the accumulated energy, and attenuating the devastating effects of the avalanches.

At the same time, they play an important role in environmental protection. By preventing landscape alteration and the destruction of natural habitats, these barriers significantly contribute to biodiversity conservation and the maintenance of mountain ecosystems.

The barriers are placed at the formation site of the snow slab, according to the slope, inclination several barriers or alignments are installed separately from each other. They act as anchoring the snow mass to the ground.

In barriers against avalanches or snow slides, the situation of installation is one of the determining variables, as they must be placed in the starting zone of the avalanches to stop them before they gain dimension.

They are placed following the contour lines, since this is the most effective location to contain the snow mantle, as this arrangement is perpendicular to the line of maximum inclination, direction which the displacement begins.

Each avalanche protection barrier project is unique. Therefore, we offer customized solutions that adapt to the specific needs of the slope, climate, and client needs. This flexibility is fundamental to providing effective and lasting protection.

The installation of avalanche protection barriers is a complex process that requires experience and precision, involving a detailed analysis of the slope and the specific climate conditions of each location. At Solutioma, we take care of the entire process, from initial design to final execution, ensuring that each stage is carried out with the highest standards of quality and safety. Our commitment is to provide comprehensive solutions that meet technical expectations.

Safety and maintenance

Safety is our priority. Therefore, at Solutioma, we always recommend carrying out the proper inspections and maintenance of rockfall protection systems. Specifically, for avalanche protection barriers before the season of numerous snowstorms to ensure their continuous protection and proper functioning.
