Project Description

Terre Armée offers engineered solutions protect infrastructure, utilities, buildings, and lives from debris flows and debris floods.

The threat of climate change raising the global temperatures, potentially causes a change in weather patterns, thawing of permafrost areas, increasing wildfires, debris flows, and shallow landslide activity. The use of flexible-net barriers can be an efficient alternative to the other traditional and costly mitigation measures such as dams and other rigid barriers.

Debris flow barriers are designed on a site-to-site basis to protect infrastructure, utilities, buildings, and lives from debris flows and debris floods. Typical barriers are installed in run-out or deposition zones, close to the elements at risk that they protect or in series in the torrent channel. Each debris flow protection system is designed on a site-to-site basis, based on a thorough understanding of the debris flow characteristics and loading parameters
