Welded Mesh Gabion Boxes

Weld mesh gabion are manufactured from cold drawn steel wire and strictly conform to BS1052:1986 for tensile strength. It is then electrically welded together and Hot Dip Galvanised or Alu-Zinc coated to BS443/EN10244-2, ensuring a longer life. The meshes can then be organic polymer coated to safeguard against corrosion and other weather- ing effects, especially when the gabions are to be used in salty and highly polluted envi- ronments.

Advantages using Welded Mesh Gabions

  1. Blends easily and harmoniously with the natural surroundings.
  2. Low cost alternative to concrete or masonry structures.
  3. Very high resistance to natural forces due to better tensile strength.
  4. Can withstand any unpredictable movement or settlement without
  5. loss of stability.
  6. Simple and speedy installation, making it cost effective.
  7. Quality finish and appearance is more aesthetically pleasing.
  8. More rigid than woven mesh resulting in a more uniform finish when built.
  9. Quicker and cheaper to install than Woven Mesh gabions because no pre- stretching required .
  10. Special gabions sizes and mesh configurations such as gabions with 4mm front mesh and 3mm mesh else- where can be assembled to order.
  11. Easy to vegetate

Applications:

  1. Retaining wall structures
  2. River and canal training works
  3. Erosion and scour protection; roadway protection; bridge protection
  4. Hydraulic structures, dams and culverts
  5. Coastal embankment works
  6. Rockfall and soil erosion protection
  7. Architectural feature retaining walls
  8. Architectural cladding for walls
