Gabions – Double Twist Wire Mesh Baskets

Cirtex® Gabions are a tried and proven option for retaining soil as well as being architectural features.

Gabions have been popular for over a hundred years. Traditionally when gabion baskets were rock filled they could be designed to act as a monolithic mass for retaining wall construction that was quite flexible, free draining and well suited to remote construction areas.

Cirtex provides gabions with four different wire coating options to meet the required lifespans in the given conditions. The four different coating options are; heavy galvanised, heavy galvanised with a PVC coating, galfan and galfan with PVC coating.

Cirtex Gabions can be either designed in a mass gravity wall or as a facing for a mechanically stabilised wall in conjunction with the StrataGrid® geogrid.

Available in a wide range of sizes to meet the requirements of your project. Supplied flat packed to be filled onsite making them more economical to freight.
