GABIONS consist of rectangular units, fabricated from a double-twisted hexagonal mesh. Filled with stones, gabions become large, flexible and permeable elements from which a broad range of structures may be built. Gabions and mattresses are widely used for hydraulic and geo- technical control such as retaining walls, riverbank protections, weirs, channel linings etc.

For easy handling and shipping, the gabions are supplied folded flat. A color stripe applied on the side of each folded gabion identifies the size.
