Gabions:a double-twisted wire mesh container of variable sizes, uniformly partitioned into internal cells, interconnected with other similar units, and filled with stone at the project site to form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures such as retaining walls, sea wall, channel linings, revetments, and weirs for erosion control projects.
1.for permanent erosion control in channels, streambank, spillways and stable slopes from surficial erosion.
2.The stone confinement within the units allows for higher shear stress resistance than the riprap.
Advantages of Jinshi gabion mesh
1.Gabion mat strength lies in their double twisted hexagonal mesh of steel wire which is reinforced by selvedges of heavier wire running along the edges.
2.The base section is divided into compartments to restrict the movement of stone and strengthen the structure.
3.The lid is supplied as a separate panel.
4.The wire will not unravel even when cut.
5.Assembly is easy, requiring no specialized labor and nearby rock is used for fill.
6.Free drainage and 30-35% voids allow vegetation to grow.
