General Information

Gabions have traditionally been constructed using flexible woven mesh for retaining structures and scour protection systems due to their porous free draining nature combined with durable rock infill. The woven mesh has proven successful in hydraulic applications allowing for potential differential settlements of structures.

Global Synthetics now offer Linkweld® gabions incorporating a more rigid welded mesh facing panel construction. The benefits of Linkweld® are realised in land based retaining structures, feature wall cladding, sound walls, seating and other landscape features where the beauty of rock and the clean straight, architectural lines of the welded mesh panels are desirable.

Product Information

Linkweld® gabions are offered in a variety of wire diameters, mesh openings, coating types and cage sizes to suit the project requirements.

The ability to produce a wide range of mesh opening configurations means that a wide range of rock infill sizes can be used.

Linkweld® gabions are modular units consisting of end, base, top and side panels, bracing wires, diaphragm panels and spiral wires or “C” clips for connection. The spiral / “C” clip connection method ensures rapid construction.

The panel wire will be galvanised or Galfan® (Zn/Al alloy) coated for corrosion protection and may be polymer coated for additional durability.

Linkweld® components are stocked in the various Global Synthetics warehouses around Australia. For further information, please contact your nearest office location.



Case Study

Walter’s Brook Restoration – Linkweld® Weldmesh Gabions

Walter’s Brook had become degraded due to large sediment deposits washing in from drain outlets and severe bank erosion due to inappropriate alignment of the drainage channel.
