What are the methods of operation for Gabion Wire Mesh?

Mar. 05, 2021

Gabion Wire Mesh can be used for slope support, foundation pit support, mountain rock surface hanging net shotcrete, side slope vegetation (greening), railway highway isolation fence, it can also be made into box cages, net pads, used in rivers and rivers , Erosion protection of dams and seawalls, and net cages for the closure of reservoirs and rivers. There are many applications for gabion mesh. So what are the operations of gabion nets? Let's take everyone to take a look.

1: Gabion net sinking operation, the first is to sink the Gabion Wire Mesh woven with iron wire. It can also be electroplated and coated with PVC, and PVC gabion net sinking row can also be used for bank protection and toe protection.

2: Stone box (box-shaped stone cage). Gabion Wire Mesh are made of iron wires or polymer wires that hold the rock fill in place. The wire cage is a mesh woven or welded structure made of iron wires. These two structures can be electroplated, and the woven wire box can be additionally coated with PVC. The meshed gabion is more flexible than the welded gabion, so the performance of adapting to subsidence and load is different. Although the filling stone material must be carefully filled to ensure that the stones are filled very densely, it is sometimes considered as a rigid stone box. It is easier to fill. For non-standard shapes, such as corners, or places where large subsidence can occur, when the braided iron wire or polymer lattice structure is deformed without losing strength, this type of structure is preferred.

3: Fill the inside of the Gabion Wire Mesh with weather-resistant hard stones as the filler. It will not be quickly broken due to abrasion in the stone box or the sink row of the stone cage. Gabion nets with different types of blocks have different characteristics. The multi-corner stones can be interlocked with each other well, and the stone cages filled with them are not easily deformed. Therefore, it is more effective than round stones when used in shear-resistant large retaining walls. On the other hand, it is conducive to the connection of stone cages. The general size of the filler is 1.5 times the average mesh size. A single stone is not smaller than the standard grid size (usually the size of the woven gabion used is (60mmX80mm~100mmX120mm), generally not greater than the standard size of 200mm. For the stone that is placed far away from the surface of the stone cage but inside, it can sometimes be Relax the minimum block size requirements.

4: Internal filling. Mechanical filling is generally faster and cheaper, but it is not as well controlled as manual filling. For the modified retaining wall, it should produce a better appearance and form a dense structure. When using these two methods, the filler must completely fill the Gabion Wire Mesh. The filler must be packed well to minimize the gaps, and the contact between the individual stones is good, and they must be packed as tightly as possible to reduce the possibility of the movement of the stones in the gabion.

The above is the operation method of Gabion Wire Mesh for everyone. I hope that the content of this article can help you. If you want to learn more about gabion net, you can continue to pay attention to us.
