Gabion baskets are used to increase slope stability. They are also well-suited for erosion control. Essentially, gabion baskets are large cubes of galvanized steel, double-twisted, woven wire mesh that are filled with relatively large, angular rocks. Often, gabion baskets are designed and installed in a stacked configuration to function as a gravity wall.
Not only can GeoBuild design and install a comprehensive slope stabilization system involving gabion baskets, but we can also repair gabion walls that are exhibiting signs of overstress as they age or conditions change. Due to the nature of the gabion baskets, we can often install soil nails through the baskets and into the retained earth in order to stabilize the slope and repair the baskets.
