Gabion Baskets and Boxes Made of Woven Wire Mesh

Wire mesh woven gabions (baskets or boxes) get the name in contrast with welded gabions. Gabions can be made of woven wire mesh flexible twisted, they can also be made of welded mesh.

Triple twist hexagonal mesh stone filled gabion baskets have been used successfully in construction work. They are sometimes commonly called stone filled cages. The triple twist weaving of the gabion mesh prevents unravelling. Woven mesh gabion baskets and mattresses are made of this mesh fabric. Woven mesh gabion baskets and mattresses are available with plain heavily galvanised wire or PVC coated galvanised wire for maximum design life. PVC coated gabions have a design life of up to 120 years depending on exposure conditions. The standard colour of the PVC coating is grey with other colours available to special order.

All stone filled woven mesh gabion baskets are a valid and effective technical solution in the design, construction and maintenance of a variety of protective flexible structures. Woven mesh being extremely tough and flexible makes this the ideal solution when the going gets rough.

Woven mesh gabion retaining walls are usually designed as gravity retaining walls to BS 8002. It is also possible to use woven mesh gabion baskets as the facing for a reinforced earth structure by attaching sheets of reinforcement such as geogrid or rockfall netting to the gabions.

Woven Gabions Main Differences:

The opening types of the woven gabions are normally hexagonal with wires twisted, while the welded gabions are normally square opening or diamond opening.

Woven gabions processing involved: Woven gabions are made by twisting of wire, while welded gabions are made by welding of steel wire.
