The Gab-tail is a reinforced soil system, with gabion unit facing, together with an extended hexagonal woven mesh tail, which extends back into the soil. Generally when your gabion structure is higher than 4 meters, and built in a fill(backfill) situation, the reinforced Gabion soil system becomes more economical and faster to install. The external gabion baskets facing provide the front internal stability to the overall structure. The mesh tails improve the lateral shear resistance (Tensile strength of the soil) providing improved overall stability improvement of the structure. A selected backfill is required meeting the requirements of at least a G6 or G7 backfill gravel, with no aggregate greater than 100-150mm that may damage the mesh. Normally this material is compacted in layers of not more than 150mm, normally to 95% ModAashto. Please contact us for any further information you require in this regard. Typical sectional and isometric drawings are shown below to assist with your understanding.
