Prefilled Gabion – Cubiroc™
Cubiroc™ prefilled gabions represent a new generation of gabion for Maccaferri. In comparison with traditional gabions which are filled on the job site, Cubiroc™ units are prefilled and then transported to the project ready for deployment into the works.
Cubiroc™ gabions are perfect when a gabion retaining wall needs to be constructed very rapidly, for example, during the night time closure of a road or railway. They are lifted into place using suitable equipment.
Cubiroc™ gabions can be filled remotely in a quarry, or local to the project site to minimise transportation time and cost. The units are fabricated from a specific woven wire mesh, with several customisations to enable the unit to keep its box shape during lifting, transportation and placement.
They can also be used to build retaining walls and revetments within difficult to access locations, or when time is limited. The pre-fabrication of the unit away from the final installation area can reduce risk and time on the site; ideal during hydraulic works, or during railway possessions.
