Amphibian protection systems

Installation of the amphibian wall

Mounting the amphibian guidance wall, each single plate is overlapping about 80 mm at the joints. Thus there is no possibility for the amphibians to climb through.

The fixation of the guidance walls with each other and to the steel or plastic posts (if mounted on open field) is carried out by using cable ties (standard polypropylene, by request V2A steel) or screws.

The guidance walls have small openings through which the cable ties can be inserted and tightened from the rear. In addition the individual guidance walls are equipped with 3 drilling holes at the front overlapping joint, through which the individual plates can be screwed together if required.

All guidance walls come standard with horizontal slots for attaching the running surfaces. If the running surface is not in use, the plate must be entrenched 15 cm deep into the soil to prevent the amphibians from slipping through these slots. If it is not possible, due to the ground condition, to dig the plates 15 cm deep into the soil, the guidance wall can be adjusted by using standard tools or project-related it can be produced without any slots.

The running surface with a width of approx. 350 mm is just hung up into the wall elements and fixed with 2 screws. The running surface overlaps at the joints, too. The running surface drops under an angle of approx. 4° outwards and the outer end of the running surface is entrenched approx. 50 mm. By the application of the angle hinge the guidance walls can be bent in any angle between 20° and 340°.

For the installation of the system neither heavy-duty equipment nor road closures are necessary. With suitable ground conditions up to 400 m of guidance walls can be installed by 2 people per working day.
