GEOBRUGG has been making systems for avalanche protection since 1951. These avalanche barriers also provide protection against falling rocks. This gave rise to the idea of making a dedicated wire net rockfall protection fence in southern Switzerland in 1958.

Safety solutions for all cases

The product range continued to develop further over the following decades: protection solutions for natural hazards such as landslides, debris flows and avalanche barriers were designed and the range of applications steadily increased. The nets are still in use today in motorsports, architecture, tunnel stabilisation and rockfall protection applications. As an independent corporation within the Brugg Group, Geobrugg has become established as the market leader in its field. Impact examples – find out more:
