WGB-01: Welded gabion can be made into various artwork to decorate.the city.

Welded gabion box is widely used in retaining wall structures, rockfall and soil protection and so on. Welded gabions are filled on site with hard and durable stone to form mass gravity structures. And welded gabions are quicker and simpler to install than woven mesh gabions.

In more applications, the welded gabion box can be made into different sizes and shapes for decoration applications. They can be made into gabion pot, staircase, table and bench, postbox. It can also be used to form particular landscapes, such as waterfall, fireplace and decorative wall.

Material of welded gabion box

Welded gabion box is manufactured from cold steel wire for tensile strength. It is electrically welded together then hot dipped galvanized or PVC coating, ensuring a longer life and better corrosion and rust resistance performance. There are galvanized welded gabion and PVC welded gabions. Gabion boxes are designed on the principle of mass earth retaining wall. The strength of the wire mesh helps to with stand the forces generated by the retained soil.

How to install welded gabion box?

  1. Erect ends, diaphragms, front and back panels on the bottom section of gabion.
  2. Fasten each parts of gabion through the mesh opening in adjacent panels with spiral wires, C ring, U clip and other connection method.
  3. Install the stiffeners. The stiffeners shall be places across the corners, at 300 mm from the center. Providing a diagonal bracing and crimped over the line and cross wires on the front and side faces. It is no need n the interior cells.
  4. Fill the welded gabion with stones, sands, soils, woods and other materials.
  5. Close the lid and secure in the same way with the step 2 connection method.
  6. When stacking tiers of the welded gabion box, the lid of the lower tier may serve as the base of the upper tier. Secure with spiral binders and add pre-formed stiffeners to exterior cells before filling with graded stones.
