If allowed to grow, vegetation can establish within a gabion wall, which can further contribute to carbon sequestration of the solution.

What thickness?

The standard thickness for a wire gabion basket is3 mm for up to 3m in height.  Freestanding walls and cladding 4mm should be used to give the straightest face.  4mm gabions are also used for walls over 3m in height and in areas where there is a high risk of vandalism.

If this is your first time installing gabion baskets we recommend a 3mm with 4mm face basket to reduce the risk of bulging from incorrect gabion installation. 5mm gabions are used mainly for applications such as prisons and military grounds.

What finish?

The standard coating is Galfan. This is a combination of Zinc and aluminum, that has a life design of 60 years. This is can be used in all applications, with the exception of polluted rivers and coastal areas.
