Geobrugg AG claims its GBE-500A is the first rock-fall protection barrier to achieve an official European Technical Approval. The product was developed and tested in compliance with the new ETAG 27 guidelines. The Switzerland-based company says GBE-500A has an energy absorption capacity of more than 500 kJ, and also is significantly lighter and easier to install than more traditional ring-net based designs. www.geobrugg.com
