Bench SeatingDescription
What is it?A wire mesh containment system that is filled with rocks or other non-degradable objects to create cost effective & durable outdoor gabion seating.
To build a gabion bench:Assemble basket in situ. Fill with hard, durable, non-degradable rock or stone. Use pieces that are 30-40% larger than the mesh aperture of the basket. Pack neatly and tightly to ensure there are no voids. Secure the lid and mount desired board or wood on top to create the seat.
Basket AssemblyComes flat packed with sides clipped together and lacing wire included. Fold sides up and lace corners together with lacing wire (or helicals if ordered also). If using lacing wire, start at the top and weave down the join, before lacing back upwards. Cut wire off at the top and secure. Larger baskets will have a central panel also – fix this into position with lacing wire. Once basket is filled, secure lid in position with lacing wire – ensure there are no noticeable voids before tying down.
Advantages of gabionsSympathetic to outdoor environment. Long lasting, weather proof.
