Gabion baskets, also known as Gabion cages, are made from double twisted, hexagonal woven wire mesh. The wire used to manufacture the gabion baskets are fabricated from soft tensile, heavily galvanized steel. Also available with an extruded PVC coating for additional corrosion protection when required by the application. The double twist of the woven wire mesh provides integrity, strength and continuity to the structure by adding a non-ravelling effect that prevents any accidental damage from spreading.

Lacing wire is used to assemble and interconnect empty units and to close and secure stone-filled units. Once assembled, the baskets are filled on-site with Gabion Stone. Gabion Baskets are also used for erosion control for bank stabilization, channel linings, and weirs. Their strength lies in their double twisted hexagonal mesh of steel wire which is reinforced by selvedges of heavier wire running along the edges and by transverse diaphragms. The wire will not unravel even when cut. Assembly is easy, requiring no specialized labour and they are easy to install.

They are ideal for any situation where a retaining structure is required which is also aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly. Gabion Baskets are most commonly used for walls, fences & boxes. Since Gabion baskets are permeable, they integrate and adapt in harmony with their surroundings, allowing environmental growth and preservation.

• Uniform wire coating for extra durability
• Flexible & permeable structure
• Tolerates differential settlement
• Easy to install
• No special labour is required for installation

For major projects, we recommend consulting with an engineer before constructing or anchoring your Gabion Baskets. For residential use, there are great resources available online to help walk you through the steps below.

  1. Layout your site using a string line or long straight edge.
  2. Create a level base by removing grass and topsoil until firm soil is found. This soil will need to hold the significant weight of the Gabion Basket without slumping or sinking over time.
  3. Internal supports are required to hold the Gabion Basketing in place and maintain structural integrity. Bury the support at least 3’-4’ deep in mixed concrete. Check local codes prior to support installation.
  4. Assemble the Gabion Baskets with the supports from step three going through the center of the basket.
  5. Fill the Gabion Baskets using larger stones on the exterior to prevent any material from spilling out of the basket.
  6. Gabion baskets can be stacked by repeating steps four and five.
