ADVANTAGES OF DURA-WELD™ GABIONS
PRE-ASSEMBLED IN FACTORY
DURA-WELD™ Gabions come pre-assembled in the factory with hinged panels folded flat for shipping and ease of unloading. They are easily expanded and ready to fill with rocks
Once expanded and place in position, DURA-WELD™ Gabions are securely interconnected with corkscrew type spiral binders at each vertical junction. Time studies have shown that welded wire baskets install at a rate that reduces labor by at least 40% compared to twisted wire gabions
BETTER SHAPE CONTROL
DURA-WELD™ Gabions provide shape control superior to twisted or woven wire fabric. Internal diaphragms and preformed corner stiffeners brace adjacent panels and add stiffness for more shape control
DURA-WELD™ Gabions and mattresses meet ASTM A974-97 requirements with regard to the materials of construction and method of manufacture.
ASTM A974-97 also establishes minimum requirements for pre-assembly of the baskets and mattresses for shipping. The steel wire mesh used in constructing a DURA-WELD gabion can be plain steel, stainless steel, galvanized or galvanized and PVC coated. Stainless steel and PVC coated gabions are typically used in applications where greater durability or an environmentally blended appearance is desired.
Gabion structures using DURA-WELD™ Gabions can be built almost anywhere with unskilled labor and often without the use of heavy equipment
DURA-WELD™ Gabions have less impact on the environment than concrete and other construction materials
DURA-WELD™ Gabions have a natural appearance and furthur enhanced when combined with plants & vegetation growth
Low carbon welded wire mesh ensure maximum strength and PVC coated wire offers double the protection against corrosion than galvanized finish wire
DURA-WELD™ Gabions are designed for high velocity water flow. Spaces between rocks help dissipate energy and provide positive drainage. They are often used in environmentally sensitive locations such as marine applications
DURA-WELD™ Gabions can last a lifetime, depending on the environment, application and surface coating
The fastening materials (heavy formed spiral binders and lacing wire) ensure that the units act as one strong monolithic structure
DURA-WELD™ Gabions can fit into tight spaces and accommodate significant soil settlement. Winter freeze and thaw conditions have minimal impact to its structure
DURA-WELD™ Gabions are virtually maintenance free when erected and installed properly
Unlike rigid steel and concrete retaining structures, DURA-WELD™ Gabions are resistant to hydrostatic pressure build up in earthen or marine environments
