Want to install Gabion walls?

Gabion walls are constructed by stacking several Gabion baskets on top of one another. These walls are a popular choice when it comes to the installation of retaining structures and are often applied along river courses where erosion is a prominent issue. These retaining structures serve an array of application purposes and besides erosion control, they are also used as noise control walls, fences, garden planters, garden furniture, terrace walls, rockfall netting, dam embankment protection and garden walls.

Aesthetically pleasing and environmentally suited to most retaining requirements, Gabion walls are increasingly popular and are often seen at upmarket residential estates and wine estates.
