Land reinforcement

This post is also available in: Dutch French

One of the main applications of gabions is land reinforcement and goes hand in hand with erosion control. Channels and rivers can be fortified with stone filled mattresses and gabions. Gabions can be used to retain the slopes. Weirs can be constructed to cope with the waterpressures. Roads can be constructed using a mesh facing attached to geogrids.


In general a geotextile is applied at the backside of the retaining wall to avoid internal erosion. Geogrids are installed and connected to the gabions. Filling of the backspace will be done in courses not exceeding 30cm and are to be well compacted. Gabion design solutions can offer you a total solution with the stability calculation of the retaining as well as determining the length and type of geogrids needed. We can supply all the materials for your project.
