The ArtWeld Gabion beats the competition with faster erection time and baskets that last longer and keep their shape. Our gabions will save you time when it comes to backfilling. Unlike other gabions, ours utilize wire stiffeners at all exterior corners of the structure to reinforce the sides, avoid bulging, and also create a larger opening for easy backfill.
We’ve seen numerous uses and applications for our gabions that are so varied; it seems the designs are only limited by the imagination.
Easily Shipped & Quickly Assembled
Standard gabion sizes are shipped flat and partially assembled on some edges. They are either banded together or on a pallet, and shipped via a common carrier box van or a flatbed truck, depending on the order size and delivery location. Upon delivery, the gabion can be unfolded, sides stood up and temporarily fastened with the included hog rings, then permanently fastened with the included spiral binders, fill with rocks, close the lid, and spiral the lid shut.
Typically, a 6’x3’x3’ gabion takes less than 5 minutes to make ready for filling.
By using welded wire mesh, our ArtWeld Gabions are stronger and hold their shape better than other types. The strength of the welded wire mesh also offers the following advantages:
- Allows for careful machine filling
- Easy to hold the alignment of the face
- Allows for larger sizes to be manufactured (up to 24’ long x 6’ wide x 3’ tall), which means fewer seams to be joined in the field.
- Simple field cutting to fit site conditions, without compromising the structural strength of the basket.
It is not uncommon for us to supply our ArtWeld Gabions as a fix after a wash out / storm event or failure of other types of gabions.
