Manufactured and supplied with related products and services, we are based in Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa. Specializing in the manufacture, distribution and design of our products used in the Civil Engineering and Construction or Mining Industries. Gabions are widely used in the erection of retaining walls and river erosion control structures to reduce water flow velocities and prevent soil erosion by encouraging deposition of fine soil sediments and the subsequent growth of vegetation. These products have been available widely on the international platform.
As you might understand Gabions have been used internationally for over 100 years now, and the technology has evolved over time to the point where it is now. In South Africa the product become more widely used since about 1957, and since then has spread throughout Africa as a useful tool to solve soil erosion and retention solutions, and provide for many labor intensive job opportunities on the sites where the works are undertaken.
