General Information

The use of woven rock filled wire baskets has been in use for over a hundred years. In Australia the product is well accepted and has been used for in excess of 60 years.

Link™ Gabions provide a highly versatile solution of earth retention and erosion protection for designers and contractors in a wide variety of applications.  Link™ Gabions are typically used for earth retention structures.

Product Information

Gabions are rectangular woven wire mesh baskets of varying size. Typically the lengths are 2m or 4m and of height either 0.5m or 1m. The traditional use of gabion baskets was that when rock filled they could be designed to act as a monolith mass for retaining wall construction that was quite flexible in nature, was free draining and was quite suited to remote construction areas. Gabions may be supplied as either a heavily zinc coated, Galfan® unit or may be supplied with an additional layer of plastic coating over the zinc coated, Galfan® wire to afford additional protection in locations where corrosion is likely to be a problem.
