Gabion Revetment Systems
High-resistance netting is ideally suited for difficult solutions to rock face problems, since the double-twist, hexagonal-woven mesh does not unravel when wires abrade. Fractured stones are trapped and confined against the slope should isolated wires fatigue from prolonged stress. Additionally, this double-twisted hexagonal type of netting has the high mechanical resistance required to prevent the danger of sudden rock shock loads and dissipate rock fall energy created from loose fractured rock. In times past, the danger represented by falling rocks and by rocky debris from slopes overhanging the road side was not given the requisite consideration. Land was not at the premium it is today since traffic volume and patterns have changed drastically. In recent years, however, the widening of existing roads and the opening of new roads and highways must accommodate modern transportation demands. For this reason we are faced with the problems of protecting the road side from rock slides in a safe and efficient manner.

Applications and Placing Schemes:
The placing of rock fall netting can vary according to the slope, its geophysical nature, the sizes of the loose boulders and the possibility of anchoring the top and base of the netting. As soil and slopes can have different characteristics each time, we are presenting only general criteria for carrying out protection with high-resistance, hexagonal double-twisted mesh netting.
Anchoring the Face:
If necessary, before laying the netting, the slope must be reclaimed, blasting to remove all loose rocks and boulders. The netting sheets (15 feet wide) shall be carefully tied together using lacing wire or interlocking fasteners at the sheet overlap.
Where overlapping occurs, usually at the vertical splice of adjoining sheets, a minimum one-foot overlap is recommended. Horizontal splices may be required as job site conditions dictate. In these situations, refer to the design engineers' splicing detail.
When it is necessary to prevent loose rocks from cascading down the slope, a suitable sheet of gabion mesh shall be anchored to the rock face of either drilled and grouted anchors or to a designed grid system (10 to 15 square yards). The type of anchorage to be used will vary according to the slope characteristics (please refer to Item 1).

Galfan gabion mesh is particularly suitable in strongly corrosive soil and water, normally it could provide corrosion protection that are up to 3 times higher than other gabions, therefore it is an ideal choice when corrosion control is a predominant factor to consider.
3mm galfan gabion mesh refers to the gabions that are made of 3mm steel wire that has been dipped into 5% or 10% Zn-Al alloy solution whose corrosion resistance is three times greater than that of normal zinc coating.
Heavy hexagonal mesh is made from low carbon steel wire or stainless steel wire with big diameter through twisting and braiding by machine. 60X80 heavy hexagonal mesh is one of our most popular product.
