The double twisted hexagonal mesh construction allows natural adjustment to varying condition of earth differential settlement without fracturing or collapsing of the structure.
The flexibility of a gabion struction provides adequate strength to with stand forces generated by retained earth and flowing water.
The gabion struction allows water to pass through. Hydrostatie pressure does not develop behind the retaining wall and the structure is continuously drained.
Heavy galvanized wire mesh is highly resistant to corrosion. The wire mesh can also additionally coated with a continuous PVC sleeve. This provide a complete protection against possible corrosion suitable for use in marine or polluted environments.
Construction is simple and assembly at site, unskilled labor used. No structural maintenance is needed and foundation is usually unnecessary.
