Foldable Wire Mesh Gabion Box
According to ASTM and EN standards, the diameter of the low carbon
steel wire varies according to the engineering design requirements.
Generally between 2.0-4.0mm, gabion wire tensile strength is not
less than 38kg / m2, the weight of the metal coating is generally
higher than 245g / m2, gabion mesh edge line diameter is generally
greater than the diameter of the wire. The length of double
stranded part is not less than 50mm,ensure that the metal coating
and PVC coating is not damaged.
The gabion cage is made of metal wire braided angle net (hexagonal
net). The wire diameter used is different according to the size of
the hexagon. In the case of coated wire hexagon,wire diameter is
2.0 mm to 4.0 mm , and in the case of PVC-coated metal wire-braided
hexagonal wire netting, outer diameter is 3.0 mm to 4.0 mm. The
wire of outer edge is coarser than the mesh wire.
According to different material:
The gabion box can be divided into galvanized gabion box, PVC
coated gabion box, Galfan gabions and 10% aluminum-zinc gabions.
They all have excellent corrosion and rust resistance performance,
but they are different in the chemical content and performance.
The electric galvanized gabion has no higher than 90 g/m2 zinc
coating, which is economical. And the hot dipped galvanized gabion
have more than 200 g/m2 zinc coating to be used in the high
2.PVC coated gabion.
Steel wires or galvanized wire are coated with PVC, which supplies
double protection for the gabions in the corrosive environments.
The PVC coated gabion can be made into different colors to suit
The galvanized wires are added into different content of aluminum
to form Galfan gabion and 10% aluminum-zinc gabion. They have
triple service life than the galvanized gabions.
According to the mesh structure:
In different applications, the requirements to the tensile strength
and stability is different. To suit more applications, the gabion
box are made into double twisted structure and triple twisted
1.Double twisted structure.
it is the common seen and widely used type gabion box. It has three
strand and solid enough to be used in the common applications. It
is lighter than the triple twisted gabion box in weight and easier
to transport and operate.
2.Tripe twisted structure.
The triple twisted structure is a heavy duty type gabion box. It
has five strands which can supply higher tensile strength and
stability for the gabion box. The triple twisted gabion box is
widely used in the high impact applications, such as flood
controlling, coastal controlling, it can defend the impact from
external force effectively.
According to different fabrication technology:
The gabion box can be made through different technology, it can be
woven or welded into different mesh types and to be used in
1.Woven type gabion box.
The steel wires are woven into hexagonal mesh types in three
strands and five strands. There is no any welding point and will
not loose when it is cut into pieces. The woven type gabion box is
widely used in the protective applications and is flexible than the
welded gabion box.
2.Welded gabion box.
The steel wires are welded together to form square mesh types with
a rigid and solid structure. Welded gabion is commonly used in both
protective and decorative applications, such as bastion barrier for
military defense and flood control, landscape construction.
Gabion box divided into three kinds of wire diameter - mesh wire,
edge wire, tie wire:
Edge wire:0.5-1.0mm thicker than mesh wire
Tie wire:2.2mm in usual
