Why you need Gab-Bloc Gabion…
We have reintroduced the mini gabion, refered to as a wire mesh Gab – Bloc. A mini gabion to reduce the amount of infill/rock required for the basket in smaller wall applications, where the retaining of an embankment is desired using a smaller gabion system. Providing all those benefits and finished appearance aspects a conventional gabion wall structure provides.
Sizes available – 1 x 0.3 x 0.3 and 2 x 0.3 x 0.3, with a diaphram compartment spacer at 1m intervals.
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 tried and proven method. 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, blasted or insitu, building rubble, or a mixture thereof, by providing a geotextile insert into the basket it can then also be filled with insitu soil to encourage vegetation growth.
