Gabions provided by EES are cages engineered from double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh. The finished product is delivered flat-packed, ready to be assembled and filled with stones at the project site.
While gabions can be used in numerous ways but are typically used to form flexible, permeable and monolithic structures such as retaining walls, channel linings, hydraulic control structures and erosion protection. They are also being used in architectural applications as decorative coverings but still providing the structural support as intended.
Each gabion basket is made from high quality steel wire, which is heavily galvanized to provide long term corrosion protection. An additional protective polymeric coating can also be applied for gabions that are to be used in more aggressive environments, or where a longer design life is required.
The basket mesh panels are reinforced by selvedge wire which is a wire having a greater diameter than the panels themselves.
A new PA6 polymer coating is also available to offer a solution to those projects that require improved environmental and technical performance to the currently available PVC and HDPE coated mesh products. EES provides gabions manufactured in the US and produced in compliance with CPR – Construction Product Regulation 305/2011, have EC markings in compliance with ETA-09/0414. The management and production system is certified in compliance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 (related to the environmental management system).
