Description of Wien Gabion Box:
Hexagonal Wire Netting Gabions are wire containers made of
hexagonal wire netting. Wire diameter varies
with the hexagonal nettings. For hexagonal wire netting with no pvc
coating, the wire diameter ranges from 2.0mm to 4.0mm. For those
PVC coated hexagonal wire netting, the outside diameter ranges from
3.0mm to 4.0mm. The wire of the outside frame edge is one wire
gauge thicker than the wire used for hexagonal wire netting.

Flexibility is an important benefit of any gabion structure. The
double-twist hexagonal mesh construction permits it to tolerate
differential settlement without fracture. This property is
especially important when a structure is on unstable soil
conditions or in areas where scour from wave action or currents can
undermine the toe of the structure and cause structural settlement.
Gabions support plant growth which provides a live coating for the
wire mesh and stones, adding to their durability. Generally, the
wire mesh is needed for the first few years of the structure’s
life; later the void between the stones is filled with soil, silt,
and plant roots which act as a bonding agent for the stones.
3. High Strength:
Steel wire hexagonal mesh has strength and flexibility to withstand
forces generated by water and earth masses, and the pervious nature
of the gabion allows it to absorb and dissipate much of that
energy. This is evident on coast protection installations where
gabion structures remain effective long after a massive rigid
structure fails. Additionally, the double twisted hexagonal mesh
won’t unravel if cut.
Gabion walls are previous to water and stabilize slopes by the
combined action of draining and retaining, precluding the
development of hydrostatic pressure behind the gabion wall.
Drainage is accomplished by gravity, as well as evaporation as the
porous structure permits air circulation through it. As plant
growth develops within the structure, the process of transpiration
assists in removing moisture from the backfill – a much more
efficient system than weep holes in standard masonry walls.
5. Low cost:
Gabion systems are more economical than rigid or semi-rigid
structures for the following reasons:
It requires little maintenanceIts installations does not require
skilled labor and stone fill is available on site or from nearby
quarries, It requires little or no foundation preparation, as the
surface needs to be only reasonably level and smooth.Gabions are
porous, requiring no costly drainage provision
Gabions is an environmentally sensitive solution to slope
stabilization. It has already been mentioned that stone fill is
done with natural stones making the gabions, naturally porous
allowing interaction between the land and the water table and also
persuades deposition of soil in the smaller voids between the stone
fill during drainage that again promote vegetation growth.
Gabions supporting vegetation has already been discussed; in some
case the vegetation growth is so intense, making the gabion
structure invisible, and pleasant to look at. Again if additional
effort is given during construction, the gabion can create really
pleasing structure with or without vegetation. Unlike other types
of materials such a modular block walls the gabion stones do not
discolor due to drainage.
