What sizes do gabion baskets come in?
Standard Size Gabions Traditionally twisted mesh gabions have been: 3′, 4.5′, 6′, 9′, and 12′ in length; 3′ and 4.5′ in width; and 1′,1.5′, and 3′ in height. The below chart shows the standard gabion sizes for both baskets and reno mattresses.
How do you size a gabion basket?
Basket Sizes The minimum size is commonly 12 inches. Fill this size basket with rocks no smaller than 3 inches or larger than 8 inches. The bulk of the rocks in the basket should be about 5 inches in diameter. The baskets can be as large 36 inches in size, which would require stones of about 6 inches in diameter.
What size is gabion stone?
The most popular size is 200-100mm stone. But you can also find 150-75mm and 80-50mm sizes for various landscape projects. A gabion is a welded mesh or a woven-wire mesh cage, basket, cylinder, or box that is made from coated, galvanized or stainless steel.
Can gabion baskets be cut to size?
Apart from the 4mm faces and handlaying partitions, another gabion option we provide is to cut the baskets down to your sizes. Due to the nature of wiring up a basket they have to be cut down to the nearest flush edge. This means it is only possible to cut to the nearest 3 inches (the aperture of the mesh).
What is the cost per Metre of gabions?
When assessing the cost-effectiveness of gabion walls, much of this depends on material and scope. The cost can vary quite drastically depending on the scale of your project, with standard steel mesh costing approximately £40 / $35 per metre.
How thick should a gabion wall be?
Gabions can be cut on site to achieve your required dimensions. The standard thickness for walls up to 3m in height is 3mm. 4mm is the architectural spec, 5mm is what we would refer to as the military spec or for use on higher walls.
Does a gabion wall need a foundation?
Gabion structures, whether walls or fences, do not need a concrete foundation. However, they do need some work under the surface. Otherwise, as heavy as they are, they would be easy to topple over. Unlike many other walls, Gabion does not require a concrete foundation.
How high can a gabion wall be?
Below photos include examples of gabion retaining walls up to 10.0m high and constructed using various wire diameters. And Small gabion walls should be designed on the same principle as a gravity mass wall, no allowance being made for the strength or mass of the wire mesh.
What stone is best for gabion baskets?
Most commonly used is the 200-100mm stone, but 150-75mm and 80-50mm sizes are also used in specific landscape projects. Please note that these sizes are approximate. The mixture of stone and the various sizes of baskets, have opened up a whole new use for the gabion basket.

However, this is mostly dependent on the type of stones or rocks your plan uses inside your mesh – the more expensive the stone, the more expensive the wall.
What kind of Cage is a Maccaferri gabion made of?
Maccaferri gabions are cages which are engineered from double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh. Delivered flat-packed, our gabions are assembled and then filled with stones at the project site.
When to use Maccaferri for gabion revetment?
Maccaferri Strong Face are an excellent solution for use when a gabion wall, or revetment needs a stronger than normal face. The units can be used where there are higher loads within the gabion structure or in situations where a higher abrasion resistance is required on the face of the wall.
How are gabion baskets used in geofabrics?
Maccaferri Gabions can withstand high shear stresses and earth pressures and can be easily adapted to site conditions. Maccaferri Gabion baskets are rectangular wire mesh cages manufactured from double twisted hexagonal mesh that are site filled with hard durable rock to form an earth retaining structure.
Where are gabion cages made in the world?
Our gabions are manufactured in our factories around the world. The management and production system in many of our factories is certified in compliance with ISO 9001. In selected factories, the gabion mesh is produced in compliance with CPR – Construction Product Regulation 305/2011, having EC marking in compliance with ETA-09/0414.
