Welded gabion box is widely used in retaining wall structures,
rockfall and soil protection and so on. Welded gabions are filled
on site with hard and durable stone to form mass gravity
structures. And welded gabions are quicker and simpler to install
than woven mesh gabions.
Welded gabion box is manufactured from cold steel wire for tensile
strength. It is electrically welded together then hot dipped
galvanized or PVC coated, ensuring a longer life. There are
galvanized welded gabion and welded PVC gabions. Gabion boxes are
designed on the principle of mass earth retaining wall. The
strength of the wire mesh helps to with- stand the forces generated
by the retained soil.
Specifications of welded gabion box:
Nominal Box sizes m)
No. of diaphragms (no.)
Capacity per box(m3)
Standard wire diameter (mm)
Heavily Galvanised or zinc coated wire 2.20, 2.50, 2.70, 3.00,
Polymer coated on Heavily Galvanised or zinc coated wire 2.5/2.8,
2.7/3.0, 3.0/3.3, 4.0/4.3, 5.0/5.3.
Welded gabion box advantages:
Blends easily and harmoniously with the natural surroundings.
Low cost alternative to concrete or masonry structures.
Very high resistance to natural forces due to better tensile
Can withstand any unpredictable movement or settlement without loss
Simple and speedy installation, making it cost effective.
Quality finish and appearance is more aesthetically pleasing.
More rigid than woven mesh resulting in a more uniform finish when
Quicker and cheaper to install than Woven Mesh gabions because no
Special gabions sizes and mesh such as gabions with 4mm front mesh
and 3mm mesh else can be available.

How to install welded gabion box?
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 filled with graded stone by hand or with a
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 box, 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.
