Galvanized Gabion - Electric and Hot Dipped Galvanized Types

Several layers of galvanized gabions are piled up on the ground.
GAG-01: Galvanized gabion is solid enough to be used as retaining wall.

Galvanized gabion is the most widely used type gabions. It is made of galvanized steel wire with different zinc coating, according to different zinc coating weight, the galvanized gabion can be divided into hot dipped galvanized and electric galvanized gabion.

  • Electric galvanized gabion. It has thin zinc coating, which is no higher than 90 g/m2, the zinc coating has outstanding corrosion and rust resistance performance to resist the environment element. The most important characteristic of electric galvanized gabion is economical. It is suitable for the customers which has tight budget and want the good quality products.
  • Hot dipped galvanized gabion. Hot dipped galvanized gabion has the zinc coating weight higher than 200 g/m2, and different wire diameter may be different. The thick zinc coating make the hot dipped gabion resist the harsh environments, even in the chemical, salty, rainy and other corrosive environments. Hot dipped galvanized gabion is widely used in the coastal, riverway controlling and other heavy duty and corrosive applications. Though the cost is higher than the electric galvanized gabion, but the longer service life and good appearance and performance are worthy for the cost.

Galvanized gabion has different fabrication technology and mesh types. The galvanized gabion can be hexagonal meshes woven cages or square meshes welded cages.

  • Galvanized woven gabions. The galvanized wires are woven into hexagonal meshes panels and different sizes of panels are combined by the lacing wire to form gabion cages for different applications. There are no welding points on the gabion surface, which can be used in the water related applications, such as coastal protection, bridge protection, riverway controlling and related projects.
  • Galvanized welded gabions. Weld the joint of the neighbor wires and form flat panels with a series of square meshes, which is called galvanized welded gabion. The galvanized welded gabion is solid and rigid enough to resist the large impact from outside conditions. It is widely used for landscape constructions, fireplaces, retaining wall and other decorative and functional applications.

Galvanized gabion can be made into different height to suit different applications. According to different height, the galvanized gabion can be divided into galvanized gabion box and galvanized gabion mattress.

  • Galvanized gabion box. It refers to the gabion height is higher than 1 m. Commonly the maximum height is 1.5 m for durability and stability. If you have higher requirements, you can choose pile the gabions up.
  • Galvanized gabion mattress. Compared with galvanized gabion box, the galvanized gabion mattress is much more flexible and multi-functional. With no higher than 1 meter height, the gabion mattress can be used in various applications, such as slope protection, river bank protection, coastal protection, bridge protection and various other applications.

Features of galvanized gabion

  • Corrosion and rust resistance. Hot dipped galvanized and various other materials can protect gabions from corrosion and rust.
  • Acid and alkali resistance. Outstanding chemical stability make the gabion to be used in the harsh environments.
  • High tensile strength. High quality material supplies high tensile strength to defend the high impact from external force.
  • Wide range of applications. The galvanized gabions can be used in protective and decorative applications in different fields.
  • Economical. Different materials and structure to satisfy different requirements for the budget and performance.
  • Ecological. It can maintain the healthily growth of plants and make the gabions be blended with surrounding environments.

Applications of galvanized gabion

Galvanized gabion can be used in various applications, here are the following applications:

  • Retaining wall.
  • Channel lining.
