Welded or woven wire-mesh gabions?

Choosing welded mesh gabion and its use often has more advantages as compared to woven mesh gabions

  • Welded mesh structure, when creating the planned retaining wall geometry can be avoided to double the individual boxes on the connection side, while in the case of woven gabion boxes the doubling of the sides is unavoidable
  • Welded mesh gabion structures have the same flexibility as woven structures, but their strength and endurance characteristics are better
  • Welded mesh gabions are more resistant to corrosion than gabions made using the woven technology
  • The size tolerance of welded mesh gabion units is 0.5%, while the size tolerance of woven mesh gabion units 5%
  • PVC coating on twisted wire often cracks due to twisting during manufacture, so it provides less protection against UV rays and corrosion than the coating on welded mesh
  • Welded mesh gabion boxes, when being filled with stones, are rigid and retain their shape, while gabion boxes made of woven mesh do not retain their shape as well and often become deformed when exposed to the pressure of the filling stones. The planned geometry and the wall face can be ensured with greater confidence with welded mesh gabion structures
  • Welded mesh gabion panels can be assembled using spiral binders, which saves of time
  • 20-30% less time is needed for assembling welded mesh gabion boxes
