Recommended applications & uses

What is a gabion?

A modular containment system (called a gabion basket or cage) made from wire mesh and filled with rock, stone or other non-degradable materials.

Usually square, rectangular or trapezoidal in shape, these stone-filled units can be placed side by side and on top of each other for use in a range of construction projects e.g. gravity retaining walls.

Common Uses

  • Coastal protection schemes including sea walls, sea defence, soil erosion
  • Gravity retaining walls
  • Feature walls & free-standing walls
  • Fencing
  • Benches / seating
  • Planters

 

Filling Guidance 

  • Choose a hard, durable, non-degradable and free-draining material
  • Usually between 100mm-200mm diameter
  • Or at least larger than 75mm x 75mm mesh aperture
  • Pick angular stone for best interlocking potential = less deformation of the face
  • Quarried stone is preferred due to angular properties
  • Rounded stone has less interlocking potential. Use 4 or 5mm wire mesh
  • Ideally, all exposed faces should be hand-packed
  • If machine filling, take care to minimise large voids
