Rigid avalanche fencing protection installed in avalanche starting zones to preventively hold the snowpack in place.

→ Particularly suitable for loose ground, this solution for permanent active protection comprises pillars supporting a set of horizontal bars (snow bridges) or bars nearly perpendicular to the ground (snow rakes) made of wood or steel.

Functional ADVANTAGES :


  • Offered in a variety of materials (wood, hot dipped galvanized steel, mild steel incorporating corrosion protection, coloration possible) to reduce the environmental impact and help it blend into the landscape.
  • Minimum service life: 40 years for steel / 20 years for wood.
  • Very reduced maintenance: particularly suitable for isolated or inaccessible sites.

  • Simplified installation due to the use of separate modules (heliportable in a maximum of 1 or 2 rotations).
  • Different types of anchors and sole plates can be used, depending on the ground and models to facilitate implementation.

  • Proven over many years for snow from 2 to 7 meters high and different snow types.
  • Developed to comply with French standard NF P 95-303 (for all heights of snow) and sized in line with the requirements of the Swiss Directive (for different thicknesses of snow).
