Gabion Baskets

What are Gabions Baskets?

Gabions are wire mesh baskets compactly filled with rocks, properly wired together for construction of erosion control structures and to stabilize steep slopes and prevent erosion.

GABION retaining walls are flexible, and soil movements do not result in the reduction of the load bearing capacity in the already constructed retaining wall structures, as opposed to retaining walls with a rigid concrete structure, where cracks and fractures may occur, which may result in the final deterioration of the retaining wall.
