CHANNEL LINING WITH GABIONS

Gabions are the frequent choice of engineers for channel lining design solutions  since they provide economical construction for embankment stability, scour protection ... ensuring  long term functional and structural integrity.

 

Gabions constructed of welded or twisted wire are the common materials used for lining channels. Vertical wall channels utilize rectangular shaped gabion baskets for the side walls and gabion mattresses for the channel bottom.

 

Channels with sloped side walls are usually lined with gabion mattresses on the slope sides and bottom 

 

Unlike  rigid wall solutions solutions, gabions form a flexible, permeable, monolithic structure that  promotes rapid growth of natural vegetation and contributes to significant water filtering and greater run-off volumes
