Grillage gabion is a cage made of Hexagonal mesh, grillage gabion’s wire diameter is based on the size of hexagonal mesh. If use metal coated wire, the wire diameter will to be 2.0mm-4.0mm, If use PVC coated wire, The wire diameter will to be 3.0-4.5mm, the wire diameter of frame edge is larger than hexagonal wire, In recent years, an emerging zinc-aluminum alloy grillage gabion which coated with zinc and aluminum and mixed rare earth alloy, is more Corrosion resistance than zinc coated grillage gabion. Grillage gabion container uniformly partitioned into internal cells with relatively small height in relation to other dimensions, having smaller mesh openings than the mesh used for gabion basket.
Grillage gabion are generally used for riverbank protection and channel linings.
The Features of grillage gabion:
- Hexagonal grillage gabion netting is economical and easy to use
- It offers great thermal insulation, corrosion resistance and has a service life for more than 20 years
- It can be used in adverse weather
- Simple construction, requiring no special technique
- The hexagonal grillage gabion can be folded up for higher space efficiency, which contributes to lower shipping costs
