5 Panel Option For Gabion Cage Retaining Wall
Introducing a simple method to reduce costs of gabion cage retaining wall projects.
There is several benefits using gabions for retaining walls such as their long life cycle, free standing ability and modular design.
Each gabion can be laced onto the next one (end to end) through out the length of the gabion cage retaining wall.
By lacing or clipping gabions together you create one individual robust structure.
The concept has been used for over 100 years and remains perfect for containment of soil, water flow control, retaining walls etc.
What you may not realise is one end panel can be made redundant from all gabions except the 1st one.
The reduction in material equates to a reduction is overall cost.
How Gabions Share End Panels
As an example using 1 metre lengths over a 20 metre length you would ideally purchase 1 x 6 panel gabion kit and 19 x 5 panel kits.
Taking panels out will not effect the integrity of the gabion cage retaining wall, rather you reduce cost of materials significantly making 19 end panels and 148 spiral wires redundant.
This method will save at least 5% off your gabion cage retaining wall, however if you choose to stick with the full kit, why not make a gabion feature out of the spare components.
