Freestanding walls

This post is also available in: Dutch French

Gabions can be used in fencing , soundbarrier or freestanding applications. Depending upon the height we will need a certain weight to take up the local windpressures. Thin walls are possible but then we need to reinforce the structure using internal profiles , beams or posts. If not the structure can collapse.

If ample space is available we can design the wall without an internal structure using only the weight of the stonefill. Usually a wider gabion will be used to achieve the necessary weight. Using only stonefill this will result in a cheaper solution since we do not need to install beams and seperate foundations.

For example a 2m high wall will need a 50cm wide gabion. Thinner walls can be build using an internal structure.
