Our protective nets for pipelines and underground structures consist of a CONTINUOUS HIGH MECHANICAL RESISTANCE (HMR) and ELASTIC RESISTANCE (HER) WARNING GRID with integrated signage (warning device and marking strip according to AFNOR NF EN 12613 standard) designed to protect your underground pipelines: water, gas, oil, electricity, etc.
When working on sensitive sites, the buried network must be protected, because in the event of an accident, the repair costs are very high. Beyond the costs, it is a guarantee of safety for the workers on these sites.
Today, France is covered by more than 2.5 million kilometres of underground structures. There are 80,000 incidents a year on these networks (despite the implementation of the Notice of Commencement [DT-DICT] reform), in the absence of offsetting safety measures aimed at reducing the risk of third-party work. The high mechanical resistance (HMR) and elastic resistance (HER) warning grid – GACTT designed by EnergyTex – is a compensatory measure that meets the requirements of the French Oil and Chemical Industry Safety Group (GESIP).
