Gabion is a resistant and strengthened product that resists against different levels of pressure even if the such pressures are continuously carried on and not disrupted . Also Gabion is adequately strengthened for controlling weights of stone-filled containers and may readily resist and withstand against water overflows and soil mass pressures. However gabions is mostly prevailed in comparison with other construction equipment particularly for erection and installation on the insecure and slender buildings.

You may find more detailed description on specification of gabion as follows:

Flexibility:

One of the distinguished privileges of gabion is its flexibility due to triple-wrest on two angles of hexagon shape which is caused to resist and strengthen against continuous pressure without any fraction and break down. This important and distinguished specification shall be very necessary and critical in where buildings have been constructed on slender and insecure foundation or in regions undergo water overflows.

Durability:

Other distinguished and particular specification of Gabion is its long durability by reason of its weaving by galvanized iron wire which is a strong coating for netting and stone-filled containers are installed especially in wet regions in where grows leafy plants such as moss and algae. For example if water pipes are coated by gabion ,so there will be no worry about their wearing out, rotting and putrefaction.

Permeability:

Pressures of inhabitant water may not impact and influence on setbacks or obstacles are coated by gabion , because this obstacle makes a slope surface for backing some of water-flow as well as keeping another part , so the remaining water shall be steamed through airflows. .

Economical:

Erection and installation of gabion is more economical than stringent or semi-stringent structures by the following reasons:

  • • Low guarding
  • • Simple structure and no need for professional skill for its erection and installation
  • • Availability of stones in enough scale
  • • No need for primary foundation , so it is only needed for smoothness of the external coating.
  • • No expensive
