Installation Instructions

Attaching the corners and lid Instructions
Cut the amount of wire from the coil that will fit the gabion – 1m length will require 1.5m of wire.

Using one continuous length thread the wire in and out of each mesh holes. As you thread the wire pull the wire to tighten

For extra strength double-loop the wire around each mesh holes.

At the start and end the wire should be looped around the mesh three times.

Attaching the lid Instructions
Follow the same process for attaching the corners (see above)
