Welded wire gabions are made of welded wire fabrics. This kind of wire mesh containers are uniformly welded and can be supplied of various sizes.
Welded gabions can be connected with other similar containers and filled with stone to form flexible and permeable structures for retaining of riverbank and soils.
The steel wire for making of welded mesh gabions is cold drawn high tensile steel zinc coated.
Gabions made of welded wire fabrics offer much strength compared with woven wire gabions while they have similar flexibility. Welded mesh gabions are faster to erect and do not need tensioning. This allows them to keep their shape, to be free from bulges and depressions and fit easily against the wall. Gabions are used in many situations including the stabilization of earth movement and erosion , river control, reservoirs , canal refurbishment , landscaping and retaining walls.

This table refers to the industry standard unit sizes; non-standard unit sizes are available in dimensions of multiples of the mesh opening.
Flexibility: Ability tolerate different settlement without fracture allowing the structure to withstand any unpredictable movement or settlement without loss or stability. This property is very important when a structure is on unstable ground or in an area where scour from waves or currents can undermineit.
Strength. Our products are designed to withstand and absorb the forces generated by retained earth or flowing water. Higher resistance to natural forces due to better tensile strength.
Permeability. Our products combine drainage and retention functions becoming ideal structures for slope stabilization.
Durability: Our products efficiency increases instead of decreasing with age since further consolidation takes place as silt and soil collect in the voids and vegetation becomes established.
Economy. Simple & speedy installation , using natural or quarried stones obtained locallyno skilled labor, minimum foundation preparation, no costly drainage systems.
Environmental friendly. The Gabion structure blends easily and harmoniously with natural surroundings. They allow the growth of vegetation maintain the existing environment and are suitable for decorative landscaping.
