Maccaferri gabions are cages which are engineered from double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh. Delivered flat-packed, our cages are assembled and then filled with stones at the project site.
There are numerous uses for these modular units and are typically used to form flexible, permeable and monolithic structures such as retaining walls, channel linings, hydraulic control structures and erosion protection. They are increasingly being used in architectural applications as well.
Maccaferri gabion baskets are made from high quality steel wire, which is heavily galvanised to provide long term corrosion protection. An additional protective polymeric coating is also applied for gabions that are to be used in more aggressive environments, or where a longer design life is required.
In order to reinforce the structure, all mesh panel edges are selvedged with a wire having a greater diameter.
Our new PA6 polymer coating has been added to our range of protective coatings to offer a solution to those projects that require improved environmental and technical performance to the existing PVC and HDPE coated mesh products on the market.
