Enviromesh Gabions are the UK's leading name in woven and welded mesh gabion systems, with over 40 years experience in the design, sales and manufacture in the industry.
These systems are wire mesh manufactured boxes that are filled predominately with a grade 6G (100 to 150mm) aggregate that are used for mass gravity retaining walls within civil engineering applications. However, in recent years their use for Architectural applications such as claddings, rain screens and free standing walls has increased significantly.
We offer two main types of Baskets systems; welded mesh and woven mesh.
Welded Mesh Systems
Manufactured from dimensionally stable panels of mesh that are formed by welding transverse and longitudinal wires at each and every intersection to form a grid.
This Welded Mesh Box is part assembled by hinging the face, back, sides and internal diaphragms to the base panel and the lid to the rear panel with ‘C’ rings or clips. The units are transported to site flat packed with lacing wire as standard for on site erection. Once assembled, they are filled with stone or rock and the lid secured to form a monolithic structure.
Applications – Mass gravity retaining walls (quality insulation), Reinforce soil walls, Landfill, Perimeter walling, River and coastal protection, Acoustic barriers, Reed Beds, Weirs, Abutments, Landscaping, Free standing walls, Temporary works.
This system comprises of units that are sub-divided into 686mm cells along the length of the cage. Construction is such that the base of one unit forms the lid of the one below. The use of combined lids and bases reduces the construction time, but does not compromise the structural integrity of the system. This combination benefits by saving on labour costs, overall material supply and associated earthworks.
Applications – Mass gravity retaining walls (high quality insulation), Reinforce soil walls, Perimeter walling, Acoustic barriers, Abutments, Landscaping, Trapezoidal gabions, Free standing walls, Cladding and rain screen.
Woven Mesh Systems
These systems consist of mesh fabric formed by weaving adjacent strands of wire, to form a hexagonal shaped mesh. The ends of the mesh wires are wrapped around a heavier transverse edge wire to form the panels. Once assembled they are filled with stone or rock and the lid secured to form a monolithic structure.
The woven mesh gabion box is manufactured from a main panel that forms the face, base, rear and lid of the unit. The side panels and diaphragms are then jointed to the base section of the main panel. The unit is then folded flat for transportation.
Applications – Mass gravity retaining walls, Landfill, Acoustic barriers, River and coastal protection, Weirs, Abutments, Temporary works.
Enviromesh Gabions also offers all the assembly systems that may be required as well as in depth guides on Design and Implementation. Please download our PDF for more information and options for our full range.
