Gallery: Can completes catch fence extension in Gibraltar

Can Geotechnical has said it has successfully extended a rock fall catch fence it first installed last year in Gibraltar.

The contractor worked with the government’s engineer and Golder Associates to value engineer the design of the 5000KJ Eastside catch fence.

Can used an A-Frame slope rig to install the post base anchors, backstay anchors and lateral anchors to ensure each anchor was installed in the direction that the load was applied. According to Can, the orientation of these was often not perpendicular to the slope and required precise manoeuvring and setting up of the slope rig.

In total 40 linear metres of catch fencing from Geobrugg was installed during the six week project.
