Welded Gabion Box
Welded Gabions are wire mesh containers welded with high quality steel mesh. They can be filled on site with hard durable stone materials to form mass gravity retaining structures. Owing to their inflexibility, welded gabions can not adapt to differential settlement or be used in water courses.
Advantages of Welded Gabion:
In comparison with woven wire gabions, welded gabions offer a higher strength. In order to meet different project requirements, various wire diameters and unit sizes are available for welded gabion boxes.
Easy to install. In fact, installation time can be as much as 40% less than required by hex type gabions. 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.
Unlike hexagonal units, welded gabion boxes hold their shape better – they don't bulge out when filled.They are easy to handle,which means more work, less labor and highter productivity an the job.
Welded gabion are made by one of the nation's leading manufacturers of welded wire mesh. Each gabion is constructed of rugged hight 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 jality materials results in a longer gabion life. Top welded wire supplied from stock in a complete custom sizes to fit unique site con-ailable on special order.

Galfan Gabion Mesh, HESCO Bastion,
Welded gabion mattress is manufactured from cold drawn steel, electronically welded at each section to form welded mesh panels and covered with PVC coating for additional anti-corrosive property.
The PVC coated heavy hexagonal mesh is manufactured from low carbon steel wire and coated with a PVC coating to strengthen the anti-corrosive property.
Gabion mattress is also called reno mattress, it is mainly composed of double twisted hexagonal wire mesh, thus the mesh shape is often hexagonal shape.
