Gabions Gabions We are the undisputed global leader in the manufacture, design and supply of gabion baskets. Maccaferri gabions 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.

Building Maccaferri Gabions are a trusted, technically sound way to retain earth and combat soil erosion. Maccaferri Gabions are rectangular woven wire mesh baskets that can be filled with rock to create flexible, permeable structures such as retaining walls for architectural, mining, industrial and road projects.

They are also used for erosion protection, weirs and bank stabilisation and to create architectural and design features. Their strength comes from a double twisted hexagonal mesh of steel wire, reinforced by heavier gauge wire along the edges and internal diaphragms.

Maccaferri Gabions have been widely used across Australasia for over 50 years. Maccaferri Gabions can withstand high shear stresses and earth pressures and can be easily adapted to site conditions.

Function Maccaferri Gabion baskets are rectangular wire mesh cages manufactured from double twisted hexagonal mesh that are site filled with hard durable rock to form an earth retaining structure. Applications Gabions can be used in a variety of different applications from mass gravity retaining walls in highway projects to architectural feature walls.

Gabions form flexible retaining structures that can accommodate differential settlements. They are also permeable eliminating the main cause of instability of soil retaining structures. Gabions have also been shown to provide a good balance between engineering requirements and environmental considerations for earth retaining walls in rivers, along roads and railways.

Advantages Maccaferri Gabions can be stepped, vertical or battered to suit your project. They offer an environmentally friendly alternative with low installation costs. Maccaferri Gabions are a durable and adaptable option for soil erosion and bank stabilisation projects. Having been used in Australasian projects for over 50 years, they have a proven performance record and remain cost-effective.

Design support To support design of retaining walls, slopes, embankments hydraulic structures weirs and channel linings and rockfall protection we offer an advanced suite of software free to our clients. Our team can also provide certified design if required. Installation Gabions are delivered to site flat-packed, where upon they are assembled, placed into position, and filled with a hard durable rock.

Hard dense quarried stone in the size range of mm to mm is normally used to fill gabion baskets. The modular nature of gabions means that it can be used in a vast array of applications and configurations. Onsite Installation Training To protect the quality of your project, Geofabrics provides on-site installation training as well as guidelines and diagrams to assist contractors.

Our recommended specialist Gabion installers can construct sample units on-site before works begin to ensure products are installed as per our recommendations.

Once the sample units are approved by engineers or the client, the Gabion works can go ahead. These tools have been shown to halve assembly time.
