Perservation of Glaciers
The injection bars offer us the ability to fuse natural snow homogeneously with the existing snow pack or glacier.
The surface layer of snow is brought to the desired volumetric weight by using the injection bars and then covered by a special cover foil developed by Steinbach Alpin. Cardinal qualities of all three variations are the extreme white UV reflective colour and water impermeablity.
The injection bars exclusively bring in water and air; and this mass increases the density of the snowpack. Up to 400 kg of water is injected per m³ of snow.
In this fashion, a glacier or snow storage is groomed and then covered with the special cover foil that limits the loss of mass to only approx. 15 to 30% in summer.
