Gabion Sacks

Gabions sacks are manufactured from hexagonal woven wire mesh type 60 or 80, also known as double twisted mesh in accordance to EN10223-3.

Gabion sacks are filled with rock at the project site to form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures such as retaining walls, channel linings and weirs for erosion control projects.

The steel wire commonly used in the making of gabions is heavily zinc coated. Additionally, to provide added protection Zn95Al5 coated wire or wire with PVC coating extruded over the heavily galvanized is utilized in environments with pollution, such as acidic soils or water, with proximity to the sea or generally in cases that the risk of corrosion is higher.

Gabion sacks are produced and shipped as multiple units base and lids of the sacks. . All selvedge wires of the mesh forming the box and the lid, have a larger diameter. The gabion sack is delivered with lids so as to reinforce the sides of the sack.

gabion sacks have are commonly made in diameters 0.45 - 0.95m and length 2.00m.
