How to Fill & Save Money

Partitions  
backfill-gabion-with-rubble

Partitions are a cheap way to backfill cages.

The partition creates a separate compartment at the back of the cage. This compartment can be filled with cheaper material as long as it is 80mm+ and can drain water

PRO

  • Cheaper than using quarried stone
  • Reduces bulging
  • Enables machine filling
Rubble Sacks  

  backfill-gabion-with-rubble-bags

man-filling-a-gabion-with-gabion-rocks

gabion-backfilled-with-rubble-bags

Rubble sacks are a cheap way to backfill cages.

The sacks should be permeable and filled with hard rubble larger than 10mm+ which can drain water

PRO

  • Cheaper than using quarried stone

 

CON

  • Not suitable for retaining walls
  • Not suitable for wall taller than 1.5m

 

 

Machine Filling  
 how-to-machine-fill-gabions-with-gabion-stone

It is possible to fill the cages with a machine such as a JCB but it makes bulging more likely

Add support poles and partitions to reduce the likelihood of bulging.

Hand filing is still required at intervals to fill in voids left by the machine

PRO

  • Quicker installation for large jobs

 

CON

  • Increased voids
  • Increased likelihood of bulging
