Gabion Basket

Gabion Baskets

Gabion Baskets are cages, cylinders, or custom 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.

Applications for gabion baskets include:

  • Retaining walls

  • Military applications
  • Beach restorations
