Gabions are cages, cylinders, or custom shaped box-like structures that provide stabilization and structure. Most gabions are manufactured as boxes that are filled with rocks, sand, or concrete aggregate mix. The boxes are then stacked, interlocked, and tied back to form a structure that will prevent natural erosion from occurring. Gabions are also available in rollable mattresses and most any custom size or shape to meet the needs of your site.
There are numerous applications for gabions including block or wire faced retaining walls, mattresses, and military applications in order to protect our soldiers from an enemy attack.
