Drawing of a CATEX on Avalanche Intervention and Triggering Plan

The CATEX cable route layout is the basis for the system design.

We call on local stakeholders who know their problem as well as professionals and official organizations and our own experience to draw the route which will stick as close as possible to the zones to be triggered, while installing the pylons in the most sheltered places of the natural risks and keeping in mind to minimize the visual impact of CATEX.

Contrary to what one might believe, the route is not fixed. It is very simple and inexpensive to “move” a pylon, or add an extension to an existing CATEX in order to improve its efficiency.

Indeed, during regular use of the CATEX, we may realize that certain avalanche zones could be better treated by moving the shooting point.
