GABIONS

Gabion baskets are manufactured using double twist hexagonal wire mesh formed into mesh panels which are then laced to form baskets. Each gabion is constructed of rugged high tensile wire which is coated with a thick corrosion-resistant layer of zinc. The wire is also available with a tough, durable PVC coating. The use of high quality materials results in a longer, more reliable gabion life. Welded Wire Gabions are supplied from stock in a complete range of sizes. Non-typical sizes to meet unique site conditions are also available.

Field installation is quick and easy and the gabions are shipped to the job site flat. Assembly is simple with no power equipment or skilled personnel required. The sides are raised and lashed using lacing wire. With diaphragms and stiffeners installed, the gabion baskets are filled with rock at the project site to form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures for retaining earthworks, forming small breakwaters, diverting water courses or for emergency works where local conditions require fast installation, where access is of concern and where underwater installation is necessary.
