Also referred to as a sack gabion, cylindrical shaped, filled to 75% capacity with rock, used in restricted areas or to act as foundation for gabion river structures. Also used quickly in emergency situations.
The sausage gabion is manufactured from a hexagonal woven mesh panel, made out of Gabion mesh 80 x 100 x 2.7mm and rolled into a sausage on site and filled with rock to 75% fill capacity and laced together with the 2.20mm Binding wire. This is an extremely useful product for founding Gabion structures where you might normally consider using loose rock or rip – rap. Bearing in mind that loose rock can be washed away by high water velocities, it makes sense to rather enclose the rock in a flexible woven mesh cage and prevent this from happening. On flexible clay soil foundations a mesh contained rock pack will move much less that loose rock. The product is available with Class A Galvanising or with grey PVC coating.
Sausage gabions should also preferably placed above a geotextile layer and individual sausages should be anchored or laced together where possible unless they are anchored below the mass of the gabion structure, to prevent lateral movement under high water velocities.
