Gabion is MWM (metal wire mesh) product comprised double twisted hexagonally woven steel wire mesh with zinc galvanized and PVC coated compartmented baskets with a rectangular box shape. The compartments are of equal dimension and are formed by internal diaphragms. The compartment is filled with natural stone at the site of use, to form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures for earth retention and the diaphragms assure minimum stone migration within the basket.
