Use & Purpose

  • Architectural Finishes
  • Freestanding Walls
  • Residential Building Finishes
  • Retaining Systems

General Information

Gabions have traditionally been constructed using flexible woven mesh for retaining structures and scour protection systems due to their porous free draining nature combined with durable rock infill. The woven mesh has proven successful in hydraulic applications allowing for potential differential settlements of structures.

Global Synthetics now offer Linkweld® gabions incorporating a more rigid welded mesh facing panel construction. The benefits of Linkweld® are realised in land based retaining structures, feature wall cladding, sound walls, seating and other landscape features where the beauty of rock and the clean straight, architectural lines of the welded mesh panels are desirable.

Product Information

All LINKWELD ™ gabions are manufactured from steel rod that is then drawn down to the appropriate diameter for use in our products. We can supply product with wire diameters ranging from 2mm to 5mm. All wire conforms to international standards for tensile strength and tolerances.  The wire is then coated in our factory with either a heavy zinc or Galfan® protection that meets international standards for both consistency and quality of such coatings. If required, we can additionally coat the product with an organic PVC for additional protection, in a range of colours.  The wire is welded into appropriate panel sizes to produce the LINKWELD ™ gabion.

Linkweld® gabions are offered in a variety of wire diameters, mesh openings, coating types and cage sizes to suit the project requirements. The ability to produce a wide range of mesh opening configurations means that a wide range of rock infill sizes can be used.

Linkweld® gabions are modular units consisting of end, base, top and side panels, bracing wires, diaphragm panels and spiral wires or “C” clips for connection. The spiral / “C” clip connection method ensures rapid construction.

The panel wire will be galvanised or Galfan® (Zn/Al alloy) coated for corrosion protection and may be polymer coated for additional durability.

Benefits and Features: 

  • Ease of construction
  • Local Stocking To Assist In Timely Deliveries
  • Quality Product
  • Range Of Wire Coating To Suit Varying Environmental Conditions
  • Wide Range Of Sizes

Application: 

  • retaining structures
  • feature wall claddings
  • sound walls
  • seating
  • landscape features

Linkweld® components are stocked in the various Global Synthetics warehouses around Australia. For further information, please contact your nearest office location.



Case Study

Walter’s Brook Restoration – Linkweld® Weldmesh Gabions

Walter’s Brook had become degraded due to large sediment deposits washing in from drain outlets and severe bank erosion due to inappropriate alignment of the drainage channel.
