RockGuard HD Pipeline Protection Mesh is an 11 mm, three dimensional bi-planar extruded diamond structured mesh rock shield manufactured from polyethylene.


Rock shield for steel and plastic pipelines


  • Does not interfere with cathodic protection
  • Excellent impact and compressive strenghts
  • Initial protection during handling and backfill operations
  • Long term protection from geologic movement, pipeline vibration and future excavation
  • Consistent 11 mm thickness throughout the roll or pad to provide full protection
  • Uniform open mesh with channels designed to resist wicking and prevent water storage next to the pipe
  • Chemically inert and will not rot
  • Effective in all climates
  • Flexible for easy handling even in extremely low temperatures
  • Ergonomically correct light weight minimizes risk of injury and allows for quick, efficient installation
  • Custom sized rolls and pads for every pipeline diameter


  • Rockguard HD is available in rolls and pads
  • Rolls are utilized for pipeline diameters up to 26" with a width equal to the pipeline circumference plus a minimum 6" overlap
  • Standard rolls are 50' in length and do not exceed 115 pounds in weight. This ergonomically correct lightweight is a safety benefit and minimizes the risk of injury at the jobsite.
  • Pads are utilized for pipelines with diameters greater than 26" with a width to the pipeline circumference plus a minimum 6" overlap
  • Standard pad lengths are 84"
