Gabions, or gabion box, gabion baskets, whether Double-twisted Woven Gabion, or Welded Gabion, are a steel wire mesh box of variable sizes, usually in 1/2 or 1 meter high, 1m wide, and 2, 3, or 4 meters long, uniformly partitioned into several cells with internal diaphragms. By inter- connected with other similar units, and ﬁlled with stones at the project site, it can form a ﬂexible, permeable, monolithic structure, such as retaining wall, sea wall, channel lining, revetment, and weirs for erosion control and slope protection projects.
Flexibilty - Tough and Durable
The gabion baskets are constructed of high tensile steel wire and filled with rocks, the flexibility of a gabion structure allows it to withstand pressure without deforming or cracking as in the case of concrete and other materials.
Permeability - Free-draining
The stone fill allows the water to seep through the gabion structure while retaining the soil, therefore no additional drainage is required to relieve the hydrostatic pressures.
Gabion construction does not require skilled labor because they are very easy to build. Standard construction equipment can be used. Besides, the rockfill is very easy to find and cheap in price. In many occasions, there are plenty of local resource of rocks and stones just in the project area.
The blending of Gabion structures into the environment is rapid and pleasing. The voids in the rockfill become progressively filled with dirt and silt, promoting vegetation growth which is essential to the preservation and maintenance of the ecological balance of the surrounding environment.
Gabion Wire Mesh is Hangxuan's main products. We have been produce gabion and mattress for more than 10 years, and these gabion mesh has been supply to many river protection and retaining wall construction projects at home and abroad.
