The systems are designed, sized and tested on real-life scale to optimize costs and effectiveness in relation to scales. 

In our plant at Villa di Tirano, Sondrio, Italy we manufacture the full range of products and systems; our specialist engineers, our latest technology and special-purpose machine tools in a 2000 sq. metre plant of indoor area are our guarantee of a quality manufacture wholly meeting the present reliability and safety levels demanded by today’s standards.

 Our designers, who are skilled professionals in the field of civil engineering and geotechnics, are able to assist local administrators, the professionals and the companies operating in the domain of ground defence in the design and planning of the interventions necessary to stabilize civil works, mountain slopes etc.
