Welded Gabion Baskets
Welded gabions are wire mesh containers welded with high quality steel mesh. They can be filled on site with hard durable stone materials to form mass gravity retaining structures. Owing to their inflexibility, welded gabions can not adapt to differential settlement or be used in water courses. In comparison with woven wire gabions, welded gabions offer a higher strength. In order to meet different project requirements, various wire diameters and unit sizes are available for welded gabion boxes.
Material of Welded Gabion: rigid, lightweight, galvanized steel mesh
Applications of Welded Gabion:
* Retaining wall structures
* Prevention of current scour and erosion control
* Bridge protection
* Hydraulic structures, dams and culverts
* Embankment protection
* Rockfall prevention and soil erosion protection
Features of Welded Gabion::
Welded gabions are faster to erect and do not need tensioning. This allows them to keep their shape, to be free from bulges and depressions and fit easily against the wall.
