Galfan 10AL - Zn Maccaferri Gabion Wire Mesh Basket For Dam
Gabion wire mesh basket is a double-twisted wire mesh container of
variable sizes, uniformly partitioned into internal cells,
interconnected with other similar units, and filled with stone at
the project site to form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures
such as retaining walls, sea wall, channel linings, revetments, and
weirs for erosion control projects.
Revet mattress wire mesh, also called reno mattress, is also a
double-twisted wire mesh container with the same weaving method as
gabion baskets, only having relatively smaller height and smaller
mesh openings than the mesh used for gabions. Revet mattress are
generally used for riverbank protection and channel linings.
We can produce the gabion wire mesh baskets and revet mattress wire
mesh on a basis of various materials as follows.
Heavily zinc-coated steel wire conforming to ASTM A 641, Class 3
coating, soft temper;
Zn-5Al-MM-Coated steel wire conforming to ASTM A 856/856M, Class 3,
The most popular wire diameter for gabion wire mesh baskets is
2.7mm, 2.2mm for revet mattress.
Weaving: a nonraveling mesh made by twisting continuous pairs of
wires through three one-half turns(commonly called double-twisted)
to form hexagonal-shaped openings which are then interconnected to
adjacent wires to for hexagonal openings. The most popular mesh
opening for gabion baskets is 80x100mm size, 60x80mm for revet
mattress. During the process, a terminal wire will be used to edge
the wire mesh perpendicular to the double twist by mechanically
wrapping the mesh wires around it at least 2.5 times or by
inserting it throughout the twists and folding one mesh length. We
always use 3.4mm wire for gabion wire mesh baskets, 2.7mm wire
