Gabions are rectangular woven wire mesh baskets filled with rock to form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures such as retaining walls for commercial, industrial and road projects. They are also used for erosion control, bank stabilization, architectural and urban design features, noise attenuation structures and weirs.

The gabion strength comes from a double twisted hexagonal mesh of steel wire which is reinforced by selvedge’s of heavier gauge wire running along the edges and by transverse internal diaphragms at 1m centers. In the event of accidental breakage of one or more of the wires, the double twisted wire configuration will ensure that the mesh will not unravel.

Material: low carbon steel wire, galvanized wire

Surface Treatment: hot dip galvanizing, PVC Coated, galvanized aluminum alloy and so on

Technical Specifications:
Gabions sizes: 2m x 1m x 1m, 3m x 1m x 1m, 4m x 1m x 1m, 2m x 1m x 0.5m, 4m x 1m x 0.5m. Custom orders available.

Features:

Flexible – Unlike welded mesh, mass concrete blocks, concrete mats or reinforced concrete, double twist woven mesh Gabions are able to accommodate significant differential settlement

Monolithic – the fastening (lacing) procedure ensure the units act as one homogeneous structure

Permeable – pore water pressures are easily dissipated through the structure

Durable – Double twisted mesh with heavily Galmac + PVC coated wire and 40 year old Australian installations, disprove the fallacy that Gabion type structures are temporary solutions

Adaptable – Gabions can be stepped, vertical or battered to suit specific project requirements. They can be filled in-situ or prefilled and placed in position depending on site conditions. They can also be cut and laced on site into non-standard shapes and sizes

Economical – Generally, Gabion installation does not require any special equipment (only pliers, wooden formwork, fence tensioner, crowbars etc.). Against other systems, Gabions compare favorably in terms of supply and installation costs

Environmentally friendly – Vegetation can easily establish, eventually re-creating the pre-existing environment.

Applications:
Gabions are mainly used in the following fields:
* Building blocks of gravity walls
* Forming of gravity walls
* Reinforced structure (a combination of reinforcing wire mesh containers)
* Control and guide of water or flood
* Flood bank or guiding bank
* Preventing of rock breaking
* Water and soil protection
* Bridge protection
* Strengthening structure of soil
* Protection engineering of seaside area
