GABION WALLS

OVERVIEW

Gabions are modular baskets or cages manufactured from Galmac coated galvanised steel double twist mesh, with the addition of a protective PVC coating on the core wire where a longer design life is required.

These baskets are filled with rock (minimum SGU = 2.4) and laced together to create a monolithic structure, either as a mass gravity wall or a facing for a reinforced earth structure using horizontal geosynthetic reinforcement.

Double Twist mattresses are modular units varying in thickness from 0.17 – 0.5m in thickness,designed as a horizontal lining in channels , aprons and other hydraulic structures, to formalise water flow, or to create energy dissipation at hydraulic jumps.
