Boulder netting is a rock fall protective measure and an engineering solution This is used at:
- Where the rock strata is fairly strong but jointed and blocky in nature, with not definite pattern / orientation of joints.
- Where rock mass is shattered, with wide / deep cracks which cannot be removed by loose scaling.
- Where big size sub-rounded boulders are seen in top rock slopes, partially embedded in laterite soil
High Strength Steel Boulder net is made up of galvanized steel ropes. This helps in preventing big sized boulders or rock chunks detached / loosened from the rock mass from rolling down, and helps in guiding them towards bottom of the rock slope
and prevent the falling of rock mass on to the track.
