  • Gabion Cladding

    Wire mesh gabions have a relatively new application with the purpose of achieving a textured finish to buildings and other structures.

    Normally a thin vertical face of gabions 0.3 to 0.5m thick is secured to the main body of the building with clamp bars. Sizing of the cells of the units is important for constructional and aesthetic reasons and should not exceed a face area of 0.7 x 0.7m, otherwise deformation of the face can occur. The minimum wire diameter for the gabion should be 4mm for cladding up to 4 to 5m. Above this height a 5mm diameter should be used for the lower 4 to 5 m with a 4mm wire above.

    Where a gabion facing is required with a sloping face, wire mesh gabions can be used with the face inclined and the rear face vertical. It may be possible to design this type of cladding as an effectively free standing wall not physically tied back to the main structure.
