Hot Dipped Galvanized Hexagonal Wire Mesh Gabion Boxes Stone Cage Retaining Wall
GABIONS (Higher than 1m in height) and MATTRESSES (Less than 1m in height) consist of rectangular units, fabricated from a double-twisted hexagonal mesh.
Filled with stones, gabions become large, flexible and permeable elements from which a broad range of structures may be built. Gabions and mattresses are widely used for hydraulic and geo- technical control such as retaining walls, riverbank protections, weirs, channel linings etc.
1. Flexibility. One of the most important advantages of double twisted gabions is their flexibility both for the individual unit and the overall gabion structure. It can tolerate different settlement without failure. This property is especially important when a structure is on unstable soil conditions or in areas where scour from wave action or currents can undermine the toe of the structure and cause structural settlement.
2. Durability. Gabions,Gabion boxes,Mattresses,Gabion baskets built from high strength double twisted hexagonal mesh, which is filled with natural hard durable stone, connect together to create a monolithic mass structure. It is capable of undergoing structural movement without any loss of structural integrity.
3. Strength. Double Twisted Hexagonal Mesh Gabions possess the strength and flexibility to withstand forces generated by water and earth masses. The most important and relevant strength characteristics pertaining to gabion design standards are the mesh punch strength, the mesh tensile strength, the pull apart resistance strength of the mesh, and the corrosion resistance of the mesh. Its strength values are located within the individual product specifications for each product and are represented in ASTM A975-97.
