Gabion Walls and Mattresses

Gabions are free-draining walls that are constructed by filling large galvanized steel baskets with rock. Gabion walls are in many applications the most cost effective structural walls available. Flexibility is an important benefit of any gabion structure. Since the baskets are constructed of galvanized mesh wire and filled with rock, the flexibility of a gabion structure allows it to withstand pressure without deforming, cracking or breaking as in the case of concrete and other materials.

Gabion Mattresses are a flexible woven mesh system, which have many advantages over block walls, reinforced concrete or concrete mattresses. Since they are flexible, a gabion mattress can deform to differential settlements, while maintaining their functionality.
