Weldmesh galvanised gabion baskets and mattresses are manufactured from either 2.5mm, 2.7mm, 3.0mm and 3.2mm wire strands, with 75mm x 75mm standard openings. Both products are supplied in a variety of standard sizes. This system is used in standard applications in civil works but is also used to achieve a particular architectural aesthetic in buildings.
Twisted mesh PVC coated gabion baskets and mattresses are manufactured to SANS 1580 with hexagonal woven wire Mesh Type 80, commonly referred to as double twist wire mesh. A polymer coating is extruded over the galvanised wire to provide added protection for use in aggressive marine environments where corrosion is present. PVC coated gabions are ideal for use in river and coastal protection.
