DRAPERY SYSTEMS: RENATURATION IN COMBINATION WITH DRAPERY SYSTEM

DRAPERY SYSTEMS: SICILY MOTORWAY

DRAPERY SYSTEMS: Miracle in Sicily: Catania-Siracusa motorway bank of about 35m high 300m long with slope of about 45°, consisting of alternating siltstones, slightly cemented sandy limestones and conglomerates.

 

DRAPERY SYSTEMS.  Rockfall protection netting may retain falling boulders, but are ineffective against the erosion of the finest materials whose continual removal by rain, wind, snow and freeze-thaw, degrades the supporting base of larger dimension stones that break away and fall downhill swelling out/expanding the net.

DRAPERY SYSTEMS.  The material accumulated in expanded nets must therefore be periodically removed and the net re-positioned, with high risks and maintenance costs

DRAPERY SYSTEMS.  Sometimes the drapery systems get damaged by the operation and must be replaced.

PRATI ARMATI® sown over drapery systems allows the blocking of the erosion of finest materials and thus the detachment of larger rocks, saving important maintenance costs.

DRAPERY SYSTEMS.  Thin and homogeneous roots avoid bulges in the underlying soil layers of whatever origin, even in fractured rocks.

DRAPERY SYSTEMS.  The thick aboveground green layer, not only visually masks the drapery systems, but also decreases the infiltration of water and protects the underlying soil from excessive thermal shock.

DRAPERY SYSTEMS.  PRATI ARMATI® grows without irrigation and maintenance, even on the most sterile lithotypes and in arid climates.

PRATI ARMATI may also work in combination with

All traditional or environmental engineering solutions (like gabions, fences, reinforced ground, rockfall protection netting) used to stabilize the slope, to improve the environmental impact.

Which pedoclimatic conditions PRATI ARMATI® can withstand 

  • adaptable to extreme soil and climatic conditions within a temperature range of –45°C to +60°C, resistant within a pH range between pH 4 and pH 11
  • climates from  very dry to very wet;
  • on practically any lithotype and climate, even on most barren ground types: clay, silt, sands, gravel, flysh, lime added soils, granular soil ridges without top soil, and so on;
    • on soils polluted by hydrocarbons and heavy metals;
    • on salty soil
