Geoweld architectural welded mesh gabions make ideal garden walls for any landscaping project. Gabions are also used for retaining walls due to its low cost and ease of installation compared to conventional methods.
Welded gabions are manufactured in mild steel to a minimum wire coating of 290 grams per m2 which is 10% Aluminium and 90% Zinc. The mesh is manufactured in Australia to meet gabion specification ASTM 974-97.
Geoweld has a high Aluminium content coating which over time turns the mesh into a dark grey colour - which has the benefit of absorbing light rather than reflecting it.
Architectural gabions can be used as a feature wall for any landscaping project. Using a variety of rocks and materials to create unique designs, the gabion wall can be very aesthetically appealing. They are useful to create barriers for separate areas in gardens or parks or used as seating.
Geoweld can also be great acoustic walls when used with sound absorbing materials within the wall.
Welded gabions are traditionally used for retaining walls (up to maximum 1 metre) due to their low cost compared to conventional methods. They can be built as either mass gravity walls or as mechanically stabilised walls.
Cladding and Columns
Gabions are ideal for creating an otherwise simple concrete facade or column into an architectural structure. They can be built from a depth of 500 mm.
