Natural Hazard Protection
Buildings and Infrastructures at the side of a slope is highly likely to be affected during a landslide. Changes in the environment such as weather, loads, and water level may induce a slope failure. Failures that occur varies depending on the materials that form the slope. These failures may be in the form of rockfalls, erosion of the slope surface, or debris flow.
Natural Hazard Protection covers protections from natural hazards such as:
One of the methods used to protect the buildings and infrastructures at the side of slopes is to place a steel wire fence system. This system catches falling rocks, stabilizes the slope surface, or holds back debris flow.
More than just steel wire fences, a synergized system including galvanization, braking element, and elongation of the steel wire is used to make the Natural Hazard Protection.
