Gabions as Fences
For centuries, rock and stone have been the symbol of strength, power, and beauty. Gabion fences are cost effective alternatives to traditional walls and have some very impressive advantages.
Expertise in Gabion installations allows us to bring you a complete package of Civil Works backed by a team of dedicated and experienced professionals.
Your complete project includes design, supply and installation of gabions.
This is a heavy 300mm wide fence which can extend up to 2.4m. It has internal supports to prevent overturning.
The stone is heavy enough to reduce noise and allows water freely through the stone which reduces water erosion.
Cost effective when compared to traditional walls with foundation, plaster and paint and has a unique stone finish.
Cubes use their internal weight over 300mm width together with internal steel posts to ensure stability under all conditions. They will support themselves without the need of a traditional foundation, which can be a great solution in areas obstructed by immoveable boulders, services etc.
- Std Cube sizes: 500mm wide x 500mm high x 300mm thick
- Internal Support posts: 50mm diameter @ 2m c/c
- Mesh under 1.2m height: 50 x 50 x 2.5mm Galvanised steel wire
- Mesh over 1.2m height: 50 x 50 x 3,15mm Galvanised steel wire
This can be a great solution in areas obstructed by immoveable boulders, services etc. Without plaster, paint and traditional foundations, gabion cubes are consistently lower in cost when compared with traditional brick walls. They also allow water to slowly filter through the wall in a decentralised way so it reduces the risk of soil erosion and unhappy neighbours.The shape and depth of the rock fill also assist in deflecting and dispersing sound waves which can form part of a noise deadening strategy. Due to their high porosity, gabion cubes will allow almost unrestricted airflow through the wall. This makes them stylish screen walls for machinery and equipment. Smoke and fumes are allied to dissipate, while everything remains completely hidden. The internal posts allow for the mounting of electric fences to the top of the wall for added security if needed.5>
