Maccaferri Green Gabions are modular gabion units used for streambank stabilization, restoration and erosion protection solutions.
They are specifically designed for use with soil bioengineering techniques such as live staking, brush layering and rooted plants, to create permanent, vegetating, armoured systems.
The Green Gabion consists of a basket manufactured from heavily galvanized and polymer coated double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh which is lined with a 100% coir blanket. The unit is filled in-place with gabion stone and then the voids between the stones are filled with quality topsoil, before the unit is closed.
The topsoil sustains the establishment of the vegetating soil-bioengineering techniques, and the stone fill provides a tough skeleton to the system.
