Gabion

Gabion are baskets made of hexagonal woven wire Mesh Type 80, commonly referred to as double twist wire mesh as per SANS 1580:2005 (Figure 1 and Table 1). Gabion 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 used in the manufacture of the gabion is heavily zinc coated Class A as per SANS 675:1997 (Table 2).If require a PVC coating is extruded over the galvanised wire to provide added protection for use in aggressive environments such as acidic soils and water, in salt water, in water carrying a high abrasive sediment load or wherever the risk of corrosion is present. The PVC coating has a nominal thickness of 0,5 mm.The tolerances of mesh and wire are shown in Tables 1 and 2. for appearance purposes.

In order to reinforce the structure, all mesh panel edges are selvedged with a wire having a greater diameter than the mesh wire. The gabion is divided into cells by means of diaphragms positioned at approximately 1m centres (Figure 1).

 Dimensions and sizes of galvanised and PVC coated gabion are shown in Table 3.
