Gabions Definition

 

The mesh fabric is formed by weaving adjacent strands of wire by twisting them through one and a half turns at intervals, forming a hexagonal shaped mesh. The ends of the mesh wires are wrapped around a heavier transverse edge wire to form the panels. The tensile strength of the mesh in the direction of the weave is greater than across the weave.

The gabion box is manufactured from a main panel that forms the face, base, rear and lid of the unit. The side panels and diaphragms are then jointed to the base section of the main panel. The unit is then folded flat for transportation.

On site, the unit can be opened out into the required position and the sides, diaphragm and end panels are rotated vertically. The vertical joints are formed by a continuous lacing operation with the wire supplied or with C rings to form the box shape.

Once assembled the gabions are filled with stone or rock and the lid secured to form a monolithic structure.


What are Gabions ?

Gabions are wire mesh boxes, containers or baskets filled with rock to prevent soil erosion and to retain/contain soil particles. They reduce water velocities and re-capture river bed sediment in streams. Flat Gabions, called River or Reno Mattresses are widely used in river courses where soil erosion is a problem over a wide flat area and a large area needs to be protected against soil loss/scour. They are used mostly in the civil engineering industry especially in the construction of roads, however recently due to their environmental benefits are being used in many various applications and industries.

They were even recently used to contain chickens for transportion in the back of a vehicle to the reseller with suprising success !
