Maccaferri Debris Flow Series of debris flow barriers have been developed to contain soil/water flows (debris flows) or shallow landslides on slopes, channels and chutes.
The Debris Flow Barriers are customised to suit the dimensions of the project, the anticipated debris material and the expected volume of the flow. Upon impact by the debris flow, the Debris Flow Barrier progressively deforms with the compression brakes and systems absorbing the energy.
The hydrostatic pressure within the flow rapidly dissipates once the debris flow has been arrested, leaving the volume of debris within the barrier.
Maccaferri Debris Flow Barriers offer strength and performance without the aesthetic intrusion of other debris flow systems.
