Welded Gabions are made from rigid, lightweight, galvanized steel mesh that allows for machine filling, holds the alignment of the face. Welded mesh gabions are faster to erect and do not need tensioning. This allows them to keep their shape, to be free from bulges and depressions and fit easily against the wall.
Welded gabion mesh is manufactured from cold steel wire with high tensile strength. It is electrically welded together then hot dipped galvanized or PVC coated, ensuring a longer life. There are galvanized welded gabions and PVC welded gabions. Gabion meshes are designed on the principle of mass earth retaining wall. The strength of the wire mesh helps to stand the forces generated by the retained soil.

How to install Welded Gabion Mesh?
Step 1. Ends, diaphragms, front and back panels are placed upright on the bottom section of wire mesh.
Step 2. Secure panels by screwing spiral binders through the mesh openings in adjacent panels.
Step 3. Stiffeners shall be placed across the corners, at 300mm from the corner. Providing a diagonal bracing, and crimped over the line and cross wires on the front and side faces. None are needed in interior cells.
Step 4. Gabion box is filled with graded stone by hand or with a shovel.
Step 5. After filling, close the lid and secure with spiral binders at the diaphragms, ends, front and back.
Step 6. When stacking tiers of the welded gabion mesh, the lid of the lower tier may serve as the base of the upper tier. Secure with spiral binders and add pre-formed stiffeners to exterior cells before filling with graded stones.
1) Easy to install
2) High zinc coating thus anti-rust and anti-corrosive
3) Low cost
4) High security
5) Colorful stones and shells etc can be used with gabion mesh to make beautiful appearance

The philosophy of the Welded gabion is similar to our woven units; our welded gabion units consist of panels of quality welded wire mesh, secured together to form a gabion unit, which is filled on site with gabion stone to form the appropriate structure.
Architectural and landscaping are popular uses for these units, as they have a formal appearance when filled correctly with quality stone. Our welded mesh gabion units have been successfully used within free standing walls, cladding and other features within the built environment.
Welded Gabion mesh is widely used for the control and guide of water; preventing of rock breaking; water and soil, roadway and bridge protection; strengthening structure of soil; protection engineering of seaside area and retaining wall structures; hydraulic structures, dams and culverts; coastal embankment works; architectural feature retaining walls. The main application as follows:
1) Control and guide of water or flood
2) Flood bank or guiding bank
3) Preventing of rock breaking
4) Water and soil protection
5) Bridge protection
6) Strengthening structure of soil
7) Protection engineering of seaside area, h.fence (up to 4 m), part of the wall of the attic, gazebos, verandas, garden furniture and etc.
Welded gabions shipped by flat packed with hinged panels, easy to fold up and assemble on construction site just using spiral joints-no need of skilled workers or power equipment.
