FRP fencing system by Fibre Net and the boundary of the Archaeological Park in Caucana


Kaukana, or Caucana, is a site in the province of Ragusa on the southern coast of Sicily founded near an ancient seaport during the Greek colonization of the Island. Archaeological excavations have brought to light a great number of remarkable buildings, including a churchyard ground. The whole excavated area, now plunged in a charming natural landscape, was turned into the Archaeological Park of Caucana.

 

In autumn 2009, an old metallic fence, which had been badly damaged by time and sea salts, was replaced with the FRP fence manufactured by FibreNet. The works were entrusted to constructors Edil2000 based in Villafranca Sicula (AG) and supervised by Mr. Di Stefano and Architect Buzzone from the Archaeological Heritage Office of the province of Ragusa. Fibre Net was charged to supply a fencing system adapted to an extremely corrosive environment (part of the site is located along the shore), but with the least environmental impact as possible.

 

The new fencing system was mounted on-site all along the boundary and consisted in mesh, posts and accessories offering ultimate resistance to brackish air and water, UV rays, wind and sand corrosion and sudden changes in temperature, while at the same time guaranteeing a nice cosmetic result integrated with the surrounding environment. From a practical point of view, the system also offers extremely fast and user-friendly installation. The versatility of the fencing system offered by Fibre Net is evident. These materials specially conceived for industrial uses can express their value also in protected environments and easily integrate in a unique site like the Archaeological Park of Caucana.

 

We wish to thank Mr. Di Stefano and Architect Buzzone for their remarkable contribution to the works.
