Gabion construction by Polyfabrics Australia


Gabions and mattresses are made of double twisted hexagonal wire mesh and filled with rock. Gabions and mattresses arrive on site as flat as units in bundles.

The walls, dividers, lid and base are expanded and assembled by lacing the loose edges. Lacing can be achieved by either conventionally using lacing wire or using steel rings. Steel rings are fastened using a specialised pneumatic tool - Lacing Tool.

Lacing Tool - used with galvanised or stainless steel rings. Available for hire or sale. Construction methods and site training provided if required.

Applications includes mines roads, road & rail embankments, flood plains & water courses and permanent or temporary works.
