The Hilfiker Gabion-Faced M.S.E. Wall combines ArtWeld Gabions at the face of the structure, with welded wire soil reinforcement mats spaced vertically at 3 foot intervals.
The “scissor-style” gabions are manufactured in lengths up to 18’. “Scissor-style” refers to the folding pattern of the gabions. They are partially pre-assembled at our factory, with the vertical edges of the diaphragms permanently connected to the vertical faces, and the lid and bottom panels connected to the main body along one long side. They are folded flat for shipment.
The wire gage and length of the welded wire soil reinforcement mats will vary as required for each specific site.
