Maccaferri contributes towards Smritivan memorial, the remarkable monument to commemorate the death of 13,805 people during the killer earthquake in Gujarat.
Maccaferri Gabions have been chosen by the architects to be a part of this milestone in India’s history. Series of Check dams and gabions will be part of it.
Our gabions are cages which are engineered from double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh. Delivered flat-packed, our gabions are assembled and then filled with stones at the project site.
There are numerous uses for these modular units and are typically used to form flexible, permeable and monolithic structures such as retaining walls, channel linings, hydraulic control structures and erosion protection. They are increasingly being used in architectural applications as well.
An additional protective polymeric coating is also applied for gabions that are to be used in more aggressive environments, or where a longer design life is required.
