Welded gabion box is widely used in retaining wall structures, rockfall and soil protection and so on. Welded gabions are filled on site with hard and durable stone to form mass gravity structures. And welded gabions are quicker and simpler to install than woven mesh gabions.
In more applications, the welded gabion box can be made into different sizes and shapes for decoration applications. They can be made into gabion pot, staircase, table and bench, postbox. It can also be used to form particular landscapes, such as waterfall, fireplace and decorative wall.
Material of welded gabion box
Welded gabion box is manufactured from cold steel wire for tensile strength. It is electrically welded together then hot dipped galvanized or PVC coating, ensuring a longer life and better corrosion and rust resistance performance. There are galvanized welded gabion and PVC welded gabions. Gabion boxes are designed on the principle of mass earth retaining wall. The strength of the wire mesh helps to with stand the forces generated by the retained soil.
