Gabion Gravity Retaining Walls

Steel Gabions:

  • Steel wire Gabions are factory manufactured / fabricated flexible wire mesh baskets.
  • Factory fabricated boxes, with diaphragms at 1m c/c.
  • Supplied at site in collapsible form
  • Filled with stones to form variety of monolithic structures
  • Gabion boxes -1 m height, Gabion mattresses – 0.17 m to 0.6 m thick.

Double twisted hexagonal mesh:

  • Double Twist– Continuous pairs of wire mechanically twisted (three one half turns)
  • Double Twist Mesh– Thicker dia. wire at the edges called “Selvedge / Edge Wire”

Properties of the wire:

  • Soft annealed, low carbon content mild steel provided with heavy coating of Zinc as per EN 10244-2 / ASTM A 641
  • In aggressive environments, 0.5 mm thick PVC Coating is also provided.
  • PVC coating is UV stabilised and complies with ASTM A 975.

Gabions for Retaining walls / Mass gravity walls / Landslide mitigation projects:

  • Gabion retaining walls are mass gravity retaining structures, constructed with boulder filled Gabion boxes to retain the soil mass laterally.
  • Using a lacing technique, Gabions are tied to adjacent Gabions to form a monolithic structure throughout the wall

Advantages:

  • Durability
  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Permeability
  • Monolithicity
  • Eco-friendliness
  • Cost effectiveness
