What is Gabion?

Gabion, is a kind of heavy duty hexagonal wire netting. It is known as gabion basket, gabion box.Gabion is made of hexagonal wire mesh, the wire diameter is basis on the different sizes of hexagonal. If the wire is zinc coated the wire diameter should be 2.0mm to 4.0mm, If it is PVC coated, the wire should be 3.0mmto 4.5mm.Then the edge wire should be thicker one sizegauge than the hexagonal mesh wire. 

1. Gabion material: 

(1) Galvanized steel wire: diameter 2.0MM-4.0MM, tensile strength >450Mpa, zinc :240g / m2.

(2) Zinc 5% Aluminum - wire diameter 1.0MM-3.0MM, tensile strength >450Mpa.

(3) coated galvanized steel wire: low carbon steel wire, pvc coated.



2.Gabion Process:


wire drawing---galvanized--- galvanized after weaving or galvanized before weaving.



3. Gabion Box sizes: 2m x 1m x 1m,

                               3m x 1m x 1m,

                               4m x 1m x 1m,

                               2m x 1m x 0.5m,

                               4m x 1m x 0.5m,and Customer orders available.



(1) Economic. Just fill the stone into the gabions and seal it.


(2) Simple installation. No special technology needed.


(3) Weather proof under natural destroy, corrosion resistant.


(4) No collapse even under big scope of deforming.


(5) Sludge in the stones is good for plant growing. Mixed to form a integrity with the natural 



(6) Good permeation can prevent the damage by hydrostatic.


(7) Less transport freight. It can be folded together for transport and further installation.



6. Applications: 


1)Control and guide of water or flood 

2)Flood bank or guiding bank 

3)Preventing of rock breaking

4)Water and soil protection

5)Bridge protection 

6)Strengthening structure of soil

7)Protection engineering of seaside area.
