Gabions

Wire baskets with natural stone filling

Stone baskets, also called gabions, are a well-tried and environmentally friendly construction system. The wire baskets, which are filled with natural stones, blend into the landscape harmoniously.

Flexible application possibilities in gardening, landscaping and road construction as well as in water structuring make gabions a cost-effective alternative to traditional construction techniques. Furthermore, the elements of ecological gardening and landscaping are much easier to implement through the various design options for trench lining and through the application of natural filling materials.

Areas of application for our gabions

  • Gardening and landscaping
    garden walls, privacy shield and noise control embankments, slope stabilisation, terrain enclosures, decorative individual elements
  • Road construction
    retaining walls, stone chip protection, securing of sidewalks and cycle paths, bridge abutments
  • Mining
    stone chip protection embankments, securing of hiking trails, banking of vineyards on steep slopes
  • Noise control
    noise control embankments on motorways and dual carriageways

Gabion type "MAYKO SSK 4,5"

Material, assembly and erection of gabions:

Highly elastic steel wires with a zinc alloy coating are induction-spot-welded to steel mat meshes and in the process form the individual elements (base and side parts, top and partitions) for our heavy-duty stone baskets.

The modular assembly of the steel mesh mats enables variable basket sizes from 500/500/500 mm (0.125 m³) to 3000/1000/1000 mm (3.000 m³).

The standard mesh width of our gabions is 100/100 mm. Should for reasons of appearance smaller stones be used or should the gabions be used as pure stone baskets, mesh with a mesh width of 50/100 mm is also available.

The individual elements of the gabions are connected to one another in a very simple manner using spiral fasteners.

For contiguous, multi-layer erection with straight front and rear parts a great amount of time and costs can be saved by eliminating side walls.
