Straight gabion walls
- Materials: galvanized wire, galfan wire and PVC coating wire.
- Wire diameter: 3–5 mm.
- Mesh hole: 50 × 50 mm, 50 × 100 mm, 76.2 × 76.2 mm.
- Length: 1500/1000/500 mm.
- Width: 1000/500/3000 mm.
- Height: 500–2000 mm or can be customized.
- Packing: pressed into sheets and tied with ropes or wrapped with plastic film, and then:
- On wooden pallet;
- In wooden cases.
- Brilliant performance
It has brilliant performance in soil stability and erosion control; therefore, it is generally used in coastal, riverside and other areas where there is risk of high water. Meanwhile, its permeable structure allows runoff to pass and drain to avoid stress upon the wall. At the same time, soil particles get into the gaps between filling rocks, begin to buildup and form seedbeds of vegetation.
- Various alignments
Various alignments of metal gabion units are available. For example, it can be engineered in stepped shape, a flexible sloping shape or other shapes according to requirements of your projects.
- Excellent flexibility
Excellent flexibility of gabion retaining wall makes it possible to move with the earth to maintain integrity. So gabion retaining wall is generally applied to areas subjected to damages from fast moving water as solid block or concrete retaining walls may result in undermining.
- Environmental friendly
Various local stones can be used to fill the baskets such as river boulders and angular limestone, meanwhile, recycled bricks, crushed recycled concrete and other waste materials are also workable. But it is recommended to use smaller stones rather than larger ones as smaller stones can be poured into the gabion baskets easily instead of hand placing.
- Easy to assemble
Gabion retaining wall is easier to assemble than traditional ones: built level reinforced footings; assemble gabion retaining wall on this footing then reinforce the gabion wall and fill it with stones.
- Long service life
Heavy zinc coating and PVC coating make the gabion retaining wall extremely resistant to rust and corrosion; in other words, these coatings efficiently protect gabion retaining wall from rusting away as well as extend its lifespan.
