• In comparison with woven wire gabions, welded gabion baskets offer a higher strength and are quick and easy to assemble.
• The standard panels are 75mm x 75mm apertures from 4mm wire.
In order to meet different project requirements, various wire diameters and unit sizes are available for welded gabion boxes.
• It is available in either black or hot dipped galvanized finish.

Health & Safety
As well as following your own procedures for health and safety.
Foundation requirements will vary with the site conditions, height of gabion structure, etc. In some cases the foundation may consist of suitable compacted fill material. Ensure you have good consolidated ground prior to placing of the gabions. It should be leveled accurately so that the base of the gabions is
fully supported. Seek the advice of a qualified Engineer if building stacked cages or a retaining wall, as you may need council approval.
Our easy assembly steps....
After checking you have all the components, open out
the mesh panels.
Lift the side panels into vertical position and join by feeding
the correct length of helical formed spiral into the corner, using a rotating action, until the helical is fully engaged.
When the helical is fully engaged, the formed end should
lock in place.
TIP: If it does not lock in place, bend the top end over using the pliers
- this will prevent the helical from coming lose.
All panel joints (vertical joints) are formed by assembling to
the adjacent panel. Each joint is retained with one helical.
Not shown: When all vertical panels are assembled, partly fill the gabion with the graded stones and install the stiffener wires.
Repeat the filling and stiffener wire installation until the gabion is full and then close the lid by joining with the correct helical while ensuring the top mesh bears down on the rock fill.
