Welded Wire Gabions
Welded Wire Gabions are made from wire mesh produced by one of the world’s leading mesh manufacturers. Each gabion is constructed of rugged high tensile wire which is coated with a thick corrosion-resistant layer of zinc. The wire is also available with a tough, durable PVC coating. The use of high quality materials results in a longer, more reliable gabion life. Welded Wire Gabions are supplied from stock in a complete range of sizes. Non-typical sizes to fit your unique site conditions are also available upon request.
Easy to Assemble
Welded Wire Gabions are shipped to the job site flat. Assembly is easy. No power equipment or skilled personnel are required. Simply raise the sides and connect with the spiral binders.(High tensile “C” rings are available as an alternate fastening system.)
Easy to Install
Field installation is quick and easy. With diaphragms and stiffeners installed, the gabion may be filled with standard loading equipment. After filling the gabion, a lid is placed on top and secured with spiral binders, lacing wire or “C” rings. Welded Wire Gabions hold their shape better – they don’t bulge out when filled. They are easy to handle, which means more work, less labor and higher productivity on the job.
Tomorrow’s Standards Today After the wire rod passes our incoming quality control, the first step is to draw it to the exact gauge. Our wire drawing machinery is computer controlled and the process is constantly monitored.
PVC Coating – An Extra Measure of Protection
The polyvinyl chloride (PVC) coating that is applied to our wire mesh is engineered for superior corrosion protection in tough, demanding applications. The PVC coating is fuse bonded to the galvanized wire providing an environmentally tight seal. The result is a coating that grips to the mesh even under high UV and saltwater exposure. Our PVC baskets are also available in a variety of colors, giving your application the high visibility it needs or allowing it to blend into the surrounding landscape.
Special Welded Wire
For the most extreme conditions and project applications, Welded Wire Gabions can be custom made from Stainless Steel and Copper mesh. These high performance meshes will provide your designs with extreme protection even in the most severe conditions.
High Performance Galvanizing After Welding
As a result we virtually eliminate destructive holes in the zinc coating that are created during welding. In addition, our galvanizing is the most pure – 99% pure zinc – Which you can be assured will provide your gabions with the utmost in corrosion protection.
