Gabion systems are used in engineering projects to provide economical and effective solutions to prevent or correct erosion. Rivers, coasts, roads, embankments and railways can all be subject to fluctuating or continuous erosion, demanding planned defenses that counteract the forces involved.
Installation can be temporary or permanent. In addition gabions can be used to create walls and retaining structures where a rustic, natural aesthetic is required.

The mesh configuration is 75mm x 75mm and all gabions should be filled with a Frost resistant durable stone such as limestone or granite of block size 100-200mm. You require approximately 1.8 tonne of fill for every 1 m3. Once the Gabion wall is installed it can be back-filled straight away and there is no need for additional drainage system as the wall is self draining.
