Gabions - double twisted mesh

Gabions basket
GABIONSgabion basketconsist of rectangular units, fabricated from a double-twisted hexagonal mesh. Filled with stones, gabions become large, flexible and permeable elements from which a broad range of structures may be built. Gabions and mattresses are widely used for hydraulic and geo- technical control such as retaining walls, riverbank protections, weirs, channel linings etc.

GABIONSgabion basketare divided into cells with diaphragms (usually spaced at 1 meter or 3’ intervals), whose function is to reinforce the structure. The mesh (except for the diaphragms) is reinforced on all edges with wires of a larger diameter to strengthen the gabions and facilitate the assembly and installation.

Lacing and bracing wire is the wire used to assemble and join the gabion units.
Connecting wires are the internal wires used to prevent the gabions from bulging during filling.
