Architectural Gabion Applications
Recently, Weld Mesh Gabions have been regularly used as architectural retaining walls, as well as architectural cladding for buildings. This is a testament to the quality of finish that is possible with Welded Mesh Gabions when constructed properly.
All our welded mesh gabions are manufactured in China, giving us the flexibility to supply made to order non-standard sizes and configurations with a minimal lead-in time. We can supply almost any specification or combination of specifications of gabions for all applications and durability specifications. Types of mesh in stock are 3mm Galfan, 4mm Galfan, 5mm galfan and 3mm green Organic Polymer coated. One popular configuration is 4mm diameter mesh in the front and 3mm diameter mesh everywhere else for extra vandal resistance on the front exposed face of the gabions.
Gabions can be supplied to anywhere in the country and the world. Our welded mesh gabions are usually supplied flat packed for ease of transportation. Our Gabions can also be pre-filled, but only when absolutely necessary because of high transportation and installation costs, as well as compromising the ability of the wall to redistribute loads because adjoining gabions are not interconnected as well.
You are cordially welcome to negotiate business by phone, fax or email.
