We have found the use of minuture gabion and mattress models to be an excellent way of showing the use of our products. They are made in JHB and we use them to show the installation methodology in a very simple and easily understood way. Kindly contact us should you wish to order some, a small range is currently available from our Johannesburg office.
We use a 13mm hexagonal bird netting mesh, with thin wire used for the lacing and salvaging. Which is cut and made by hand to size and displays all the various components of a gabion or river mattress product. I used to import these from Brasil, however then managed to source the mesh and a talented manufacturer of the minuture baskets locally, a Malawean guy, we then started making them in Durban – South Africa at the time in 1994. I can even remember exporting a box full of different size gabions models to Europe previously for one of the top gabion manufactures in Europe at that time. We look forward to showing you our gabion models, and you are welcome to visit our factory where the full size materials are are made in Johannesburg.
