MBS Fixed snow barriers





Fixed snow barriers

Snow barriers provide a solution to the following issues:

- providing snow cover on pistes and ski lifts
- snow cover at ski lift departure and arrival stations
- protecting pathways against drifts
- removing snow from building pathways
- moving avalanche snow build-up zones
- creating "snow quarries"


A properly installed snow barrier can accumulate snow over a distance 20 times its height. For maximum efficiency, barrier modules should be installed to create a total length at least 20 times the barrier height.


This snow barrier model remains in place permanently after installation. It can provide an excellent snow build-up, facilitating snow distribution onto the pistes, and the creation of "snow quarries".


The device consists of class 4 pre-drilled autoclaved pine components, for on-site assembly with zinc-plated bolts.
