The welded mesh Gabion Box can be adapted to differential settlement or for use in waterways. Welding mesh gabion provide higher strength than braided wire cages. In order to meet different project requirements, welded wire cages can use a variety of wire diameters and unit sizes.
All rock packing should be tightly packed to minimize voids. Rock filling on the exposed surface of the stone cage should be packed by hand.
The internal windlass support ties are located at 1 midpoint of each panel, with a height of 0.686 m and a midpoint and a third height of 1.0 m. Adjacent units should be connected to the full length spiral at all vertical joints and tied horizontally to each grid space before and after each route.
The unit of the welding mesh gabion should be filled so that the grid base of the above unit is pressed down onto the rock fill. The cover should be wired on all connectors and diaphragms.
Gabion's strengths include flexibility, durability, strength, permeability, economy and landscaping.
Gabions have a wide range of uses:
Mass gravity walls, reinforced earth walls, patio walls, river linings, river training structures such as Groynes or dam structures, road culverts or exit structures, low-rise or Irish crossings, longitudinal river structures
