Landslide/Rockslide Prevention Systems
Landslides are a geological phenomenon involving vast amounts of land movement that is sometimes subtle but can be triggered over time or due to one specific event, such as a storm or earthquake. Preparation rather than deflection is the key to lessening the harm of landslides and rockslides by installing a temporary or permanent barrier to protect people and property.
Barrier Force™ systems provide the protection you need with their pentagon shape and high-strength textile material. The individual bags are connected and chambered to form a continuous length of barrier, typically in 100-foot segments, which can be linked together to form a barrier of practically any length.
The bag segments unfold accordion style and are mounted on our Man Portable Deployment Unit (MPDU) before being filled with sand, dirt, gravel, soil, cement, or other recommended material, depending on the situation.
