Royal gabion ™
Because we are your reliable partner, we are poised to proffer unbeatable SOLUTIONS.
At Royal Technergy we believe that completing required tasks on time and within budget, we have become successful.
We are the undisputed leader in the design and supply of gabion baskets and solutions. Our gabions are cages which are engineered from double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh. Delivered flat-packed, our gabions are assembled and then filled with stones or rock grades at the project site.
There are numerous uses for these modular units and are typically used to form flexible, permeable and monolithic structures such as retaining walls, channel linings, hydraulic control structures and erosion protection. They are increasingly being used in architectural applications as well.
Our gabion baskets are made from high quality steel wire, which is heavily galvanised to provide long term corrosion protection. An additional protective polymeric coating (PVC) is also applied for gabions that are to be used in more aggressive environments, or where a longer design life is required.
We also have a higher grade called galfan gabion – which is Zn-Al coated.
In order to reinforce the structure, all mesh panel edges are selvedged with a wire having a greater diameter.
Our new PA6 polymer coating has been added to our range of protective coatings to offer a solution to those projects that require improved environmental and technical performance to the existing PVC and HDPE coated mesh products on the market.
Gabion Retaining Walls
Gabion retaining walls are a gravity type retaining wall that uses stone filled wire baskets. They are very similar to our concrete block design but can be more economical.
Gabion basket retaining walls allow water to escape if large stone is used to fill the baskets. If not back drainage may be required to stop any build up of hydrostatic pressure building up behind the wall that can cause failure.
A number of materials can be used to construct Gabion basket retaining walls. The selection of the material is dependent on the budget and design life span of the wall, which our clients are at the disposal of it all.
