Formed from wire grid and welded at the intersections to give dimensionally stable mesh panels.
The trapezoidal box is based on the Gabion 27 System and is formed by hinging the face and back panels to the base panel and the lid to the rear panel with ‘C’ rings or clips. The unit is provided with preformed frames of the required shape that are fitted in the factory to the base panel and/or supplied loose for fixing on site.
On site, vertical joints are helicalled (supplied as standard) and horizontal joints are continuously laced (wire supplied as standard) or can be clipped with 'C' rings (supplied at additional cost).
To close the ends of a run of units, special bespoke trapezoidal gabion panels to the required shape are supplied and fitted on site.
The units are transported to site flat packed for assembly on site.
Once erected, the gabions are filled with stone or rock and the lid secured to form a monolithic structure.
