Hexagonal Gabion Box


Hexagonal Gabion Box, also called Hexagonal Gabion Mesh,Hexagonal Gabion Basket. 

Hexagonal Woven Mesh Gabion Box is a mesh structure woven from low-carbon steel wire or PVC coated steel wire, which is mechanically woven to form a box shaped. It is widely used in modern engineering for slope support, foundation pit support, mountain rock surface hanging net spraying and other projects.It plays an important role in water flow erosion prevention, protection of riverbed and riverbanks, and other fields.

Hexagonal Woven Mesh Gabion Box has been widely recognized and applied in engineering practice due to its unique advantages and functions.

Hexagonal Gabion Mesh Description

Hexagonal gabion mesh is a common type of gabion with hexagonal holes, which is made of high tensile strength, high corrosion resistance galvanized wire, PVC coated wire, or galfan wire (zinc-aluminum alloy wire) woven by a fully automatic weaving machine.

Why Do You Need Hexagonal Gabion Mesh?

● Hexagonal Gabion Mesh is high strength but still flexible enough over poor underlying soil profiles

● Hexagonal Gabion Mesh is made to withstand very high compressive loads from above in large retaining walls and fast-flowing water velocities in river situations

● Hexagonal Gabion Mesh is strong and can be used for high-strength requirements like rock netting fall protection

● Mesh is made with a double twist for strength and cannot easily unravel if the wire is cut

● The wire is Class A Galvanised or PVC coated to prevent mesh corrosion on site

● Flexible high-strength mesh for use in Gabions

Hexagonal Gabion Mesh Types

☼ According to the different materials used, hexagonal gabion mesh includes 3 types: galvanized gabion mesh, PVC-coated gabion mesh, and coating gabion mesh.

● Type 1: Galvanized gabion mesh, a widely used type of gabion mesh, has a zinc layer on the surface of the wire, which can effectively prevent corrosion by air and water. According to the different amounts of zinc, it can be divided into ordinary galvanized and high galvanized, the amount of zinc on ordinary galvanized gabion mesh is: 40-60g/㎡, and the amount of zinc on high galvanized gabion mesh is: 200-500g/㎡. The higher the zinc content, the longer the service life.

● Type 2: PVC-coated gabion mesh, the inner wire is generally galvanized wire or galfan wire, the outer edge is wrapped with a layer of PVC coating, the coating thickness is generally 1mm, PVC-coated gabion mesh compared to galvanized gabion mesh, has better corrosion resistance, the service life of up to 20 years or more.

● Type 3: Galfan coating gabion mesh, made from zinc aluminum alloy coating wire, including two types: 95% zinc, 5% aluminum or 90% zinc 10% aluminum coating, due to the zinc-aluminium coating, compared with galvanized gabion mesh, the corrosion resistance is stronger, and the service life is longer, generally can reach more than 50 years.

☼ According to the different shapes and structures, Hexagonal gabion mesh includes a gabion basket and a gabion mattress.

● Type 1: Hexagonal gabion basket, which can be filled with appropriate-sized rocks to form a retaining wall structure. There is a diaphragm in the middle, which can enhance its strength. Gabion box is widely used in river control, dam protection, landscape and so on.

● Type 2: Gabion mattress, also known as reno mattress, is a mesh box structure with a height of generally 0.3m, filled with stones, which is generally applied in slope protection or laid on the riverbed to prevent the water from scouring the riverbed.

Installation of Hexagonal Gabion Mesh

Hexagonal Gabion Box

Hexagonal Woven Mesh Gabion Box typically comes packaged in a folded form, with all the gabion panels already connected to form a single unit. This means that you've essentially completed the second step already!


The next step is to unfold the gabion basket and make it flat. Then, lift up the gabion mesh panels at the bottom and use tying wire to tie together adjacent panels.


Once the structure is secured, it’s time to fill the gabion mesh with stones. After you've added enough stones to fill the mesh, use binding wire to firmly fix the top of each side of the gabion mesh. And just like that, the hexagonal woven mesh gabion box is installed with ease.

Hexagonal Gabion Box Applications
Hexagonal Gabion Box is used in many situations including the stabilization of earth movement and erosion, river control, reservoirs, canal refurbishment, landscaping and retaining walls.​

● Control and guide of water or flood
● Flood bank or guiding bank
● Prevention of rock-breaking
● Water and soil protection
● Reinforcement of bridge base and extrusion of hydropower stations
● Preventive stabilization of soil
● Protection engineering of seaside area
● Stabilization and reinforcement of slopes with deviation
● Construction of support walls with flat or tiered surface
● Strengthening of water barriers, canals and docks
● Coating of river banks, canal and stream banks
● Retaining mounds

Hexagonal Gabion Box Advantages
  • 1. Flexible structures can adapt to changes in slopes without being damaged, it have better safety and stability than rigid structures.
  • 2. Strong anti erosion ability, able to withstand water flow speeds of up to 6m/s.
  • 3. The hexagonal woven mesh gabion box's structure is essentially permeable. It has a strong tolerance for the natural and filtering effects of groundwater. Suspended substances and sludge in the water can settle in the rock filling cracks,which is beneficial for the growth of natural plants and gradually restoring the original ecological environment.


Package & Loading
We can package the hexagonal gabion box according to the customer's requirements:

1. By bandaging wire

2. By wooden pallets plastic film

We can also customize the logo on the packaging according to customer needs.
Hexagonal Gabion Mesh Production:

Our factory choose high quality galvanised wire, plastic-coated wire or zinc-aluminium alloy coated wire, and weave it through automatic gabion mesh weaving machine to reach the required length and then cut it. After cutting, the gabion mesh will be wrapped around the four edges on the thicker wire, and then about 100 sets of gabion mesh sheets will be stacked together, and finally compressed by the bale press machine to reduce its size for easy transportation.
