Scaling and reprofiling
The removal of loose rock and large blocks from cliff faces can be used as a short-term solution for stability problems. Regular rock scaling can be used as a cost-effective means of managing the risk of rockfall from your slope or cliff face. The Vector geotechnical team are highly accomplished and professional in this field of operations. It is important to realise, due to the unpredictable nature of a fallen rock mass, that it is crucial those working on the project have an advanced understanding of these works. That is why Vector is chosen time and time again.
We use a variety of methods to carry out re-profiling and rock removal. These include:
- Percussive breakers
- Plug and feather
- Expansive grouts
The methods used are chosen to suit your specific project. If there are large blocks threatening property, people or infrastructure, we may install a temporary restraint system ( see catch fence ) This will allow us to break up the rock in situ and lower the smaller debris in a controlled manner.
