Woven Gabions

  • Woven Gabions are woven from machine, then cut & fold into different modules such as Gabion Basket, Reno Mattress, Rockfall Netting and sac.
  • Gabion wire is made of  combination of 2.7/3.4 mm diameter 270g/m2 hot dipped galvanized wire. 5% or 10% Alu-Zinc wire (Galfan) was recently applied.
  • The most popular gabion meshes are 80*100mm, 60*80mm.
  • The most popular gabion modules are 1*1*1m, 2*1*1m basket, 1*1*0.5m, 2*1*0.5m mattress, or 2*15m, 2*25m rockfall nettings.
  • We have the only one Japanese Gabion Weaving machine in China, better than all the Chinese Made Weaving Machine, this one produced the most precised & regulated mesh shape and size, however it is only for 60*80mm mesh.
  • We also have PVC powder – coating line, Automatic Selvege Machine, & Mesh Compressing Rolling Machine facilities.
  • We offer multiple PVC color options ( International RAL color system, however market mainly accept 6005 green & 7046 grey, 9011 black color).

Case Study

  • This is a failed case one UK customer purchase from other gabion supplier.
  • PVC particle are second hand its melting extent are different from standard temperature required.
  • Coating tech is pool so as to the feeding speed and coating mount unevenly, it caused sleeve drop when twist and split to eventually lead to corrosion.
  • PVC color are incosisitant and faded into stain color due to ultraviolet light.
  • Mesh hole occurred during incoherent working streams.

How to Avoid Broken Hole on Mesh

  • Broken hole on mesh is a common problem during woven process, to avoid broken holes on the mesh is a big management challenge for labor dense manufacturers, workers have to be extremely concentrating on the tube check and rolling monitoring, especially when shift works.
