What Are Gabions?

Gabions are modular components that are frequently utilized to create flexible, permeable, and monolithic structures such as retaining walls, channel linings, hydraulic control structures, and erosion protection. They are also becoming more popular in architectural applications.

Gabions, which get their name from the Italian word for cage, are durable enclosures filled with inorganic elements including rock, concrete, sand, soil, and even glass rock for specific architectural purposes. Galvanized steel, stainless steel, bare steel, PVC coated steel, and copolymer plastic are just a few of the materials that may be used to build these cages. They are very adaptable and can resist a wide range of environmental and site conditions.

When it comes to civil engineering, military applications, road construction, general landscaping features, foundations, erosion control, and architectural elements, gabions are indispensable. Since gabions are flexible and permeable structures, they have found increasing use in architectural fence and veneer construction as well as in the stabilization of shorelines against erosion.
