When jioned and filled, the system can be used to create of exceptional strength and structural integrity.
1. A pre-fabricated gabion of galvanized welded mesh steel fitted with a UV-protecting.
2. Polypropylene geo-textile liner.
3. Filling material is an easy- obtained mix of sand and small stones.
