ADVANTAGES USING GABIONS AND MATTRESSES

  • Drains Freely

      Gabions offer an easy to use method for decreasing water velocity and protecting slopes from erosion.

  • Durability
    It has a very high resistance to atmospheric corrosion because of the well bonded zinc coating to support vegetation growth.

  • Strength
    Gabions are sufficiently solid, meaning they can withstand floods, torrential rains, frost, and earth pressure.

 

  • Environmentally friendly

       The gabion cage can be made out of recycled materials. The gaps in the soil between filling materials allow the plantation

       to grow over time.
