Gabions for Water Erosion Protection
Since the early 1800s, rock-filled gabion baskets have been used on river banks and shorelines to withstand the effect of wave action, turbulence, and the ever-present destructive erosion from running water. It takes the strength of rock to resist the relentless power or water. They have become the most effective solution in most erosion scenarios the work over.
Our workforce is backed by an assortment of plant, loaders, and uniquely adapted tools to ensure that construction is carried out as efficiently as possible. The company takes pride in its’ ability to provide a professional service with advice and recommendations by qualified engineers who deliver accurate design information.
Gabion wire can be PVC to increase the resistance to corrosion from salt and acid in their environment. It also offers some protection to the galvanized coating which can be damaged by floating debris in water applications. The PVC adds approximately 0.5mm to the diameter of the wire with only a negligible increase in weight.
