Gabion baskets come in flat pack form and are assembled on site. They can be used in a range of applications from small domestic projects to large industrial schemes. The infill to the baskets is usually locally sourced stone ranging from 200mm - 100mm. Hand facing ensures that the wall has good cosmetic appearance. Nowadays it is widely used because of its firm structure and environmental friendly all over the world.
Material of Gabion Baskets: high quality low carton steel wire or stainless steel wire, galvanized wire, stainless steel, copper and aluminum weaving etc.
Features of Gabion Baskets:
Double-twisted hexagonal steel wire mesh structure tolerates against huge forces without breaking or cracking. It adapts itself to some degree of movement.
Galvanized wire mesh has very long life. If the galvanized wire coated with PVC, the life of structure gets longer. It is better for hydraulic works.
The hexagonal wire mesh structure filled with stones provide an effective permeability throughout the structure, they are self-draining.
Gabion Structures are very economical compared to the conventional structures especially when the stones to fill the structure are close to the work area. Low maintenance is required for the construction works (Life Time Economy)
It can absorb the huge amount of energy and very strong under tension generated by the nature. Well-made gabion structures can exist in perfect condition for many decades.
Applications of Gabion Baskets:
* Control and guide of water or flood
* Flood bank or guiding bank
* Preventing of rock breaking
* Bridge Protection
* Water and soil protection
* Coast protection
* Seaport engineering
* Strengthening structure of soil
* Protection of road
Packing of Gabion Baskets:
Normally each roll packed in water proof paper, then in termo foil (Shrinked Plastic)
