Retaining Walls

TAG: Green Terramesh, Gabion Box, Gabion Mats

Retaining wall is a mechanically stabilized earth wall using gabion facing with a continuous mesh that forms the reinforcement and the facing element in one unit. It is best used for commercial, industrial, road projects, erosion control, and bank stabilization.

Among the most common gabion structures, gravity wall rely on their significant mass and geometry to retain soil. Inherently flexible and porous, gabions are well mechanically suited to gravity walls and require no additional drainage. Gravity walls are usually designed with a 6 degree batter from vertical, with either a stepped front face or stepped back face.Gravity walls constructed from gabions will revegetate over time but may be selectively planted with desired species. Once established, the vegetation will add even greater strength to the structure.

Gravity walls are ideally suited to construction from roll-stock. This purchase option offers substantial savings in material costs and labor, incurs less freight and permits costruction of continous lifts up to 300-feet in length. Baskets may be filled with locally available graded stone, or for even greater economy, crushed concrete.

The protective coating is typically either:

Heavily zinc galvanised wire

As above PLUS heavy duty PVC coating

Galmac (galfan) coated with a 95%Zinc + 5% Aluminium Mischmetal Alloy

As above PLUS heavy duty PVC coating
