Gabion and Rockweld Wall Cages

From a 4000 year old idea, the modern Gabions were first industrially produced in the 1880’s, when the double twisted wire mesh was first introduced. This particular double twisted woven netting ensures that in the event of a wire being cut the double twist prevents the unraveling of the mesh. All the edges of the baskets are reinforced by a stiffer and stronger wire.

 

Around the world Gabion retaining walls have been an effective, environmentally friendly solution where erosion has been a problem. Maccaferri Gabions are used widely for water and drainage management as well as for facilitating soil stabilisation. Another common use for Gabions is in noise or sound barrier walls as they diffuse, absorb and reduce noise.
