Geotextile (150gsm average) is a needle punched non woven geotextile made of staple fibres. Primary applications: drainage, separation.
After assembly gabion cage is 1950mm Length x 300mm Width x 975mm Height (measured from centre of wire) x 4mm diameter. Select Spiral, Nikolock or U-Clip connectors. Alternatively C-Ring type connectors are available, please contact us.
Kitset includes panels: 2 of 1950mm x 975mm and 2 of 1950mm x 300mm, 3 of 975mm x 300mm. Stiffeners: 8 of 300mm (braces placed front to back), plus 2 of 980mm (placed end to end from centre panel). AL-TEN is wire coated with a minimum of 290 grams of 10% Aluminium and 90% Zinc.
If spirals kitset contains: Spirals 6 of .3m, 14 of 1m.
If using Nikolock space a minimum of every 3 apertures. If using U-Clips or C rings space a minimum of every 2 apertures.
Gabion kitset is supplied unassembled in a box or pallet depending upon quantity.
A gabion (free standing) with these dimensions will not be stable. Reinforcing steel may be used (capped to prevent water from entering if hollow section). Typically placed every metre and extended approximately 3/4 of the height into the cage. The depth of the footing and reinforcing steel dimensions must be determined based upon soil type and height of wall.
See attachment for an example of how to do this.
If the gabion is used for retaining you will need to ensure there is sufficient mass and proper anchoring into the slope to prevent collapse, for example geogrids and earth anchors are often used in addition to mass alone. At the very least a retaining wall without an anchoring system will require a minimum of half the height for the base. Check with an engineer for advice as soil type and other factors must be considered.
