Gabion baskets Features and Benefits




Gabion baskets have been used for a long time period internationally and are preferred on government projects due to some of the following reasons:

Gabion Baskets Features And Benefits

 

  1. High strength – un-weathered rocks used within the gabion provide high compressive strength.

  2. Enhanced flexibility – woven steel wire mesh is used for the baskets, allowing movement over expansive soils without failure.

  3. Labor intensivegabions use a lot of manpower, with little use of machinery required. Unskilled labor from local communities can be used and trained in a short time period.

  4. Low environmental impact – vegetation and plants/trees can be incorporated in the gabion system to cover the gabion or mattress protection in a short time.

  5. High porosity – gabions unlike concrete do not require weep-holes for water pressure release behind the retaining walls, they have a 35% pore space volume, allowing free movement of water through the walls, and soil fines movement are blocked with a geotextile filter fabric.

  6. Bomb and earthquake proofgabion structures can provide protection for; bomb shelters and earthquakes, especially when filled with rock and soil due to their high flexibly/strength characteristics.

  7. Mattress linings – offer vegetation growth and the benefit of microorganisms within the structure to provide food for insects, fish and animals in river situations, unlike the environment created using a solid or segmented concrete lining with little environmental benefits.

  8. Simple – Local labor is used to erect baskets, and can be trained up in a short time period on site.

  9. In time – vegetative root growth will enhance the strength of the structure by binding the rocks together and stabilizing it with soil infill in streams.

  10. Economical – suitable rock infill and the use of local labor can be sourced from quarries and communities near the site.
