Maccaferri Jumbo Gabions are used on large scale civil engineering projects where large volumes of gabions are to be constructed. Identical in concept to our regular gabions, Jumbo Gabions are just much larger!
They enable the contractor to install gabion units faster and more efficiently, due to the economies of scale of the units and construction process.
Delivered flat-packed, our gabions are assembled and then filled with stones at the project site.
Maccaferri gabion baskets are made from high quality steel wire, which is heavily galvanised with our GalMac® zinc-aluminium (Class A to EN 10244:2) coating to provide long term corrosion protection. 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.
In order to reinforce the structure, all mesh panel edges are selvedged with a wire having a greater diameter.
Our new PoliMac® polymer coating has been added to our range of protective coatings. The new polymer recipe is unique to Maccaferri and has been developed to provide superior materials to clients that respond to the new demands of climate change, infrastructure resilience and increasing value. PoliMac® offers significant improvements over traditional polymer coatings including greater abrasion resistance, long-term UV protection and environmental benefits.
Maccaferri Gabions have BBA HAPAS Certification.
Maccaferri gabions are manufactured in our factories around the world. The management and production system in many of our factories is certified in compliance with ISO 9001.
In selected factories, the gabion mesh is produced in compliance with CPR – Construction Product Regulation 305/2011, having EC marking in compliance with ETA-09/0414. The management and production system is certified in compliance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 (related to the environmental management system).
