Gabions are rectangular wire mesh baskets filled with rock at the project site to form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures such as retaining walls for commercial, industrial and road projects. They are also used for erosion control, bank stabilization, channel linings, and weirs.
Gabion box (also called Stone netting,heavy hexagonal, pinch spend net, Gabion network)are wire containers, which are made of hexagonal wire netting. Wire diameter varies with the hexagonal nettings. For hexagonal wire netting with no pvc coating, the wire diameter ranges from 2.0mm to 4.0mm. For those PVC coated hexagonal wire netting, the outside diameter ranges from 3.0mm to 4.0mm. The diameter of the wire of the outside frame edge is thicker than the one used for hexagonal wire netting.
Surface Treatment：PVC coated，Galvanized+PVC coated，electro galvanized，Hot dipped galvanized etc.
Economic and useful: What we need to do is just put the stones into the cage without special skills.
It is convenient to transport as it can be transported folded, assembly on site.
It has a strong resistance to natural destruction and poor weather.
It can withstand large-scale deformation, and does not collapse.
Some plants can grow in the gap among the rocks, and it can melt with the natural environment surrounding together.
And it has good permeability, which can prevent the damage caused by fluid static.
widely used in highways, railways, protecting hillside, hillside greening, well and alley fence, building and breeding, zoo fence, greening fence, hillside net cage, flood fighting net cage, revet fence, control and guide the direction of river, spillway and diversion channel, rock fall protection, prevent soil and water from flowing, beach protecting project, protection of the bridge, solid structures defense project, retaining wall, and port.
