Easy to install
Field installation is quick and easy. Installation time can be as much as 40% less than required by hex-type gabions. With diaphragms and stiffeners installed, the gabion may be filled with standard loading equipment. After filling the gabion, a lid is placed on top and secured with spiral binders, lacing wire, or “C” rings.
Unlike hexagonal units, JOESCO welded gabion hold their shape better – they don’t bulge out when filled. They are easy to handle, which means more work, less labor, and higher productivity on the job.
JOESCO welded gabion is made by one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of welded wire mesh. Each gabion is constructed of rugged high tensile wire which is coated with a thick, corrosion-resistant layer of zinc. The wire is also available with a tough, durable PVC coating. The mineral materials results in a longer, gabion life. JOESCO welded wire supplied from stock in complete Custom sizes to fit unique sites available on special order.
