Weld Gabion

Gabions are purpose designed and manufactured specialist stone filled wire mesh baskets or cages for use in the construction of retaining walls and slope stabilisation. Weld Mesh Gabions are offered as an alternative to our range of Woven Mesh Gabion baskets.
Welded Mesh Gabions are constructed using square electro welded weld mesh panels of high tensile steel. They are increasing in popularity due to their comparative ease and speed of installation. They are an economical environmental solution for structural retaining walls and coastal defences. They are particularly suited for use in retaining walls due to their permeability and flexibility. The permeability enables groundwater to flow through freely when most other retaining wall types will retain ground water causing hydrostatic pressure to build up behind the wall. Hydrostatic pressure buildup may result in the wall failing and collapsing. The flexibility allows gabions to deform a little without damage when in comparison rigid retaining walls such as concrete walls would have cracked and crumbled.
 
Weld Mesh Gabions are typically supplied partially assembled to suit customer requirements and flat packed for delivery. Once on site, they are opened up, stood up and then laced together in-situ with lacing wire to form the required retaining wall configuration. Where appropriate, they may also be clipped using CL50 clips or helicalled using Helical binders.

Mesh Sizes Options

Proper gabion mesh is square rather than rectangular due to the fact that the stresses are the same both vertically and horizontally. We can offer a range of mesh size dimensions. Mesh size is linked to the infill stone size. The most common mesh size is 3″ x 3″ (76.2mm x 76.2mm) but 2″ x 2″ (50.8mm x 50.8mm) and 4″ x 4″ (101.6mm x 101.6mm) are also available. Other mesh sizes are available on request.

Wire Diameter Options

Standard wire diameters available are 3mm, 4mm and 5mm. Heavier gauge wire increases rigidity which in turn results in a squarer and neater looking wall. The resulting basket is also easier and quicker to fill. Even though the standard 3mm is more than adequate for most structural applications, 4mm and 5mm are often selected for the following reasons:
  • Improve appearance
  • Ease of installation
  • Speed of installation
  • Added vandal resistance
  • Added rigidity for pre-filling and lifting
