Rockfall netting is made from triple twisted hexagonal woven mesh. It is normally supplied in rolls 2m wide and 25m or 30m long. Choice of coatings are either PVC coated or galvanised. It is normally used in conjunction anchors or rock bolts, anchored to rock face to contain rockfalls. Alternatively, use in conjunction with our range of erosion control mats to help stabilise steep rock faces. One common combination is our Rock netting and Secumat combination which was used behind Fitzgerald’s Pub in Avoca.
Unlike chainlink mesh, the strong ‘triple twisted’ mesh rock netting will not unravel if one of the mesh wires should break.
Rock netting is manufactured from the same mesh that is used for the manufacture of Woven Mesh Gabions. PVC coated Rockfall Netting have a design life of up to 120 years. Please check out our Woven Mesh Gabion page for more technical information.
