Welded Mesh Gabions Architectural Wall Cladding

Gabions are mostly used as soil protection retaining wall or mass gravity retaining structures for landscape construction. Welded wire mesh gabions can also be used as architectural mesh in buildings. Main types of architectural gabions: Galvanized steel, pvc coated or Galfan coated welded gabions. The cages are filled with stone to form a flat container form, then placed one by one and connected firmly to each other with high tensile lacing wire. They are used to build an ancient-feeling cladding for the walls in castles or villa. Welded mesh gabions inner lined with geo-mat can be used for military bastion.

Gabion Elements for Wall Cladding Galvanized and PVC Coated Welded Mesh Panels for Making of Gabions
Reasons that gabions are chosen for architectural wall cladding:
a, The welded mesh panel structure gabions are hot dipped galvanized or green plasticized, hence achieve the surface of bright silver or Dark green color or other colors for options. They offers different styles of decorations to the building. You can choose according to your design needs.
b, The gabion boxes with hot dipped galvanized steel or plastic coated steel mesh enjoy good corrosion resistance and work for a long time. Hence can form a permanent wall cladding that is maintenance free. It will not collapse even under big scope of deforming.
c, The cost of the welded mesh gabions are economic.
d, The stone gabions offers a long-time-story-telling feeling and suit all castles.
e, The gabions baskets are designed with collapsible structures for filling natural stones. The stones can be easily found anywhere, to save cost and to give a nature decorative effect.
f, The gabions wall cladding plays the role of retaining the soil as well as decoration.
g, The hexagonal twisted mesh gabions are not suitable for wall cladding as the mesh are flexible and not as solid and strong as welded mesh basket containers.

Welded Mesh Gabions are also Used:
Welded gabions have a wide range of uses besides architectural uses. They are used in slope support, foundation pit, mountain rock face mesh protection gabion, slope vegetation (green), railroad highway isolation guarding block. They are also made into cages, nets mats, scour protection of rivers, levees and seawalls, reservoirs and river closure with a cage. For control of river water flow, flood control, massive soil erosion control. By using of gabions, they can make the river banks receive permanent or semi-permanent protection.
