Maccaferri GABION (Figure 1) are cages which are engineered from double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh. Delivered flat-packed, our gabions are assembled and then filled with stones at the project site.
There are numerous uses for these modular units and are typically used to form flexible, permeable and monolithic structures such as retaining walls, channel linings, hydraulic control structures and erosion protection. They are increasingly being used in architectural applications as well.
Maccaferri gabion are made from high quality steel wire, which is heavily galvanised. An additional protective polymeric coating is also applied for gabions that are to be used in more aggressive environments, or where a longer design life is required.
Technical Characteristics of the double twist wire mesh products GABIONS are listed and detailed in the technical data sheet available on Maccaferri website (https://www.maccaferri.com/). According to Construction Product Regulation CEE 305/2011 the essential technical characteristics, as per Harmonized Documents EAD 200039-00-0102 and EAD 200019-00-0102, are reported in the Declaration of Performances (DOP).
