We have reintroduced the mini gabion, we refer to as a wire mesh Gab – Bloc. This is a mini gabion to reduce the amount of infill/rock required to fill the basket for smaller walls, where the retaining of an embankment is desired using a smaller gabion system, and at the same time providing all those benefits and finished appearance aspects a gabion wall structure provides.
Sizes available – 1 x 0.3 x 0.3, 2 x 0.3 x 0.3 or 3 x 0.3 x 0.3, with diaphram compartment spacer at 1m spacing.
The basket is manufactured and available in square welded or hexagonal woven mesh finish. We recommend their use where not much rock or expensive rock is only available near site. Thus providing the need to reduce the rock quantity required to fill the basket. Kindly contact us for further information regarding this new and proven method. It was firstly developed in 2004. We have many examples shown below where it has been successfully used in both Botswana and South Africa. These can indeed be filled with a range of infill materials including;- rock, shot or insitu, building rubble, or a mixture, by providing a geotextile insert into the basket it can then be filled with soil to encourage vegetation growth.
