Woven Gabion Baskets - Flexible, Durable & Versatile
A woven gabion basket refers to a rectangular box with high strength lying its double
and triple twist hexagonal steel mesh fabric made form galfan wire or PVC wire. Filled with stone, woven gabion baskets form a
monolithic mass structure that can withstand rough movements
without any integrity loss. Meanwhile, they are more durable than welded gabion baskets, thus, they are successfully applied to various rough conditions.
Such as they can be used for desert gabion, gabion groynes, gabion channel etc.
Woven gabion basket
- Robust & flexible structure
Woven gabion baskets have robust and flexible structure which
enable them to prevent unraveling effectively and withstand forced
from water and earth masses. In addition, they accommodate
different settlements such as unstable soil conditions or areas
where the going gets rough. Meanwhile, all their edges are
reinforced by heavy wire selvedge for added strength.
- Excellent permeability.
Woven gabion baskets feature excellent permeability of the front
face, which allows for great drainage of backfill to dissipate
hydrostatic pressure forced upon the gabion wall.
- High versatility.
Woven gabion baskets can be stacked to create a retaining wall with
vertical, sloping or stepped front face based on the requirements
of your project. Meanwhile, woven gabion baskets can be mounted
combining various plants for enhanced strength and more pleasing
- Long lifespan
All of our woven gabion baskets are heavily galvanized, Zn-Al alloy
plated with optional PVC coating to resistant against corrosion and
maximum their lifespan. Normally, our galfan gabion and PVC gabion
can last up to 120 years based on different exposure conditions.
