Gabion Basket - Flexible and Permeable Stone Container

Gabion basket also named gabion box, is weaved by corrosion resistance, high strength and good ductility galvanized wire or PVC coating wire through mechanical. Wire's material is zinc-5% aluminum alloy (galfan), low carbon steel, stainless steel or iron. Gabion mattress is similar to gabion basket. But gabion mattress's height is lower than gabion basket, structure is flat and big. Gabion basket and gabion mattress are stone containers, uniformly partitioned into internal cells, interconnected with other containers and filled with stone at site to form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures to control and guide water or flood, protect dam or seawall, or used as retaining walls, channel lining and other applications.

Some stones are placed in gabion basket soaking in water.
GB-1: Gabion baskets contain stones to control or guide water.
Galvanized gabion baskets filled with stones are placed together neatly.
GB-2: Strong galvanized hexagonal wire mesh can be used for gabion basket.
Two cells empty gabion basket is placed on grass land.
GB-3: Gabion basket can have two cells.
Galfan gabion baskets are placed in front of slope like a wall.
GB-4: Gabion baskets filled with stones pile up as retaining wall to prevent soil glissade.
The picture shows many green PVC gabion baskets filled with stones or empty.
GB-5: PVC coated gabion basket has better corrosion resistance to maintain a longer life.
Green PVC coated gabion mattresses are filled full of stones.
GM-1: PVC coated hexagonal wire mesh can be used for gabion mattress.
There are six cells of the empty green PVC coated gabion mattress.
GM-2: Gabion mattress has lower height, so it can adapt any terrain.
Some stones are placed in gabion mattress as steps under bridge.
GM-3: Gabion mattress has lower height and flexible structure.
There are many gabion mattresses link together to form hard slope.
GM-4: Gabion mattress can form a hard flat road, especially in the founderous road.

Features of gabion

  • Compared with traditional galvanized gabion, galfan gabion has a good corrosion resistance.
  • Galfan plus PVC coating gabion is stronger and more durable than galfan gabion.
  • Corrosion resistant, high strength, possess ductility.
  • PVC coating will increase the protection ability in high polluted environment, this gabion can fuse with surroundings through choosing different color.
  • Convenient to transport and install.
  • Gabion basket or mattress are formed to a flexible, permeable and monolithic structure.
  • Soft structure can adapt the change, will not be damaged, has better safety and stability than rigid structure.
  • Due to the spacing among stones, it has good ability of resistant to scour, silt can be left in the spacing where plant can grow.
  • Low cost, long life.

Applications of gabion

  • Control and guide water or flood.
  • Retaining walls.
  • Channel lining.
  • Dam and seawall protection of scour resistance.
  • Bridge and pier protection of scour resistance.
  • Reservoir and river closure cages.
  • Protect land from erosion.
  • For Villa Landscape.

Note
Zinc-aluminum alloy is called Galfan in foreign, zinc coating is high zinc plus aluminum. Aluminum content is 5-10%, zinc content is 90-95% in Galfan. The meaning of Galfan is "an extraordinary galvanized". Corrosion resistance of the products is about 2-3 times that of ordinary galvanized. Currently, Galfan galvanized wire mainly used in gabion basket.
