Applications of Gabion Baskets
People often use gabion baskets for construction, decoration, etc. Let’s review the applications below.
1. Slope retaining, foundation pit supporting, retaining wall structures, landslide and debris flow control projects;
2. Riverbank reinforcement, protection for riverbank, canal banks, dams, weirs, etc.
3. Slope greening, noise and environmental barriers on railways or highways;
4. Architectural uses for aesthetic or decorative purposes.
Advantages of Galvanized Gabion Boxes
Both galvanized and PVC-coated wire meshes have excellent corrosion resistance. It is extremely efficient to resist natural destruction and the influence of severe weather. Its service life is more than 25 years and it generally requires no maintenance.
Gabion wire mesh box has good tensile resistance. Especially, woven wire mesh has a flexible structure, which can withstand a large area of deformation without breaking. Even if a piece of wire breaks, it will not affect the whole structure.
3. Great Landscape and Protection Effect
Gabion wire baskets combine engineering and greening, which can effectively prevent soil erosion. After putting the stone or other filling materials into gabions, 30% gaps are left. The gaps allow the plantation to grow over time. Using gabions will not destroy the natural environment. On the contrary, it is an ideal choice for landscaping and greening.
4. Stronger Impact Resistance
The impact resistance of gabion basket structure is more than twice the impact resistance of general protective wall. The gabion netting is a flexible structure, when affected by the scouring of water, the stones in the gabion basket will not affect the overall performance even if they are displaced by impact.
5. Easy & Quick Installation
It is easy to install. Just put the stone in the gabion cage and seal it. No special skills are required and no electricity or water are required, neither.
Gabion wire mesh uses fewer materials, which makes it more economical than conventional structures. Besides, it requires less maintenance and lower labor costs.
What Is Gabion Basket?
Gabion basket is made of wire mesh and filled with rock, stone, or other materials. And it almost looks like a cage. Generally, it is available in square, rectangular, or hexagonal in hole shape. According to the making method, it can be divided into woven and welded gabion baskets. While in terms of the coating, you can find galvanized and PVC coated gabion boxes.

How to Calculate Gabion Weight?
Here is a weight calculation formula: wire diameter (mm) * wire diameter (mm)* mesh count * length (m)* width (m)*1.5/2= weight (kg)
For example, the wire diameter is 2 mm, and the mesh hole size is 60*80 mm. The mesh count will be 25.4/(60+80)=0.18. And it is 1 m in length and 1 m in width. Then the weight of the wire mesh (per square meter) is about 2*2*0.18*1*1*1.5/2=0.54 kg.
Galvanized Gabion Basket Packaging
It is generally packaged in bundles. In addition, some special sizes of galvanized gabion baskets need to be packed in woven bags or wooden boxes for transportation. We will make a perfect packing to reduce it is damaged or scratched during the transportation. If you have special requirements for its packing method, you can contact us for communication.
Price of Galvanized Gabion Basket
Because of the unstable market situation of raw materials, their production quantity, duration, and price are also affected. The price of gabion basket produced by Wanzhi Steel varies according to the size and raw material, such as PVC coated gabion basket is more expensive than galvanized gabion basket. But you can rest assured that the price of our gabion baskets must be proportional to their quality. Besides, we have our factory, which means we can offer you factory selling price to save your money.
Galvanized VS PVC Coated Gabion Wire Mesh
Considering the different coating finish, you can find galvanized and PVC-coated gabion baskets. Galvanized gabion is covered with a zinc layer, which has strong corrosion resistance. The maximum zinc coating thickness can reach up to 300 g/m2.
PVC-coated gabion is coated with polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which can extend its service life. Also, the PVC coating provides better resistance to weather and UV rays. Moreover, it has more colors to choose from. The popular colors include green, black, white, etc.
Woven VS Welded Gabion Box
Welded wire mesh has a smooth surface and uniform mesh, which is more aesthetic and stronger. Also, welded gabions are more resistant to corrosion. We have welded gabion boxes available in square and rectangular mesh hole shapes. It is popular for retaining wall structures, landscaping & architectural structures, etc.
Woven gabion is made by twisting wires into hexagonal wire netting, which has more flexible structures. It is mainly used for retaining wall structures, erosion and scour protection, etc. Below are pictures of the flexibility test of woven and welded gabion baskets.
How To Choose Gabion Wire Mesh?
As an experienced gabion basket manufacturer, we suggest choosing gabion wire mesh according to its applications and use purposes. You need to take the product material, wire diameter, opening size, coating, and processing technique into consideration.
As mentioned, woven wire mesh is flexible and soft to adapt to various environments. It can keep its strength and integrity even under great stress and strain so that it is suitable for rockfall protection barriers, slope stabilization, etc. While welded gabion mesh excels in aesthetic applications. So it is commonly used for landscape architecture, decorative cladding, retaining walls, etc. If you want more color options and you have enough budget, PVC-coated gabions will be your best choice. Except that, you also need to choose the mesh size, opening size, and wire diameter. For example, gabion mattress is shorter than gabion baskets, which is useful for erosion control. If you are looking for gabions for river protection and bridge protection, gabion mattress will be a better choice.
How Long Does Galvanized Gabion Basket Last?
Typically, it has a life expectancy of 10 to 40 years. The service life of galvanized gabion basket is directly related to the environment in which it is installed. Exposing it to salt water, fresh water, highly acidic soil, etc. can affect the long-term durability of the structure. In addition, the number of coatings, coating uniformity, and coating hardness will also directly affect its service life.
1. Generally speaking, the more zinc content the gabion basket coating has, the better its anti-corrosion performance and the longer its life span.
2. Secondly, the uniformity of the coating is also important. Maximum corrosion protection can only be achieved when the surface of the mild steel wire is uniformly covered with a zinc layer. If the coating is not uniform, some places are thick and some places are thin. Then the thin coating is easy to corrode, which will affect the overall life of the galvanized gabion basket.
In conclusion, to improve the life of galvanized gabion mesh, the amount of coating, coating uniformity, coating hardness, and other factors must be strictly controlled. Wanzhi Steel will strictly control the quality of galvanized gabion basket when producing it. We are committed to producing high quality gabions to maximize the profitability of your project.
