Gabions and Gabion Baskets
Gabions and Gabion Baskets have many practical applications along with many specialty uses as well. With steel wire mesh in the form of a gabion, along with the right geotextile and drainage plan, you can create an amazing retention wall. Retaining walls made from gabion baskets are being used around the globe and are being seen as a great sustainable solution. As these wire cages form into a wire wall, vegetation can be introduced to create a "Vegetated Wire Wall". Imagine replacing old concrete retention walls with vegetation! These are the types of solutions that we supply. Turning simple welded wire fence and wire mesh panels into something as beautiful as a vertical wire wall vegetated garden is true innovation! Many materials available including: galvanized steel wire mesh, stainless steel screen wire mesh, copper welded wire mesh, galvanized aluminum or GALFAN mesh, and of course our fuse bonded PVC coated galvanized steel wire mesh.
The Basics of Midwest Gabions
Welded Wire Gabions are made from wire mesh produced by one of the world's leading mesh manufacturers. 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 use of high quality materials results in a longer, more reliable gabion life. Welded Wire Gabions are supplied from stock in a complete range of sizes. Non-typical sizes to fit your unique site conditions are also available upon request.
