MacSoil is a prismatic (or trapezoidal) gabion element engineered from double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh. It is used to form low-height retaining structures or revetment protection works and has the final appearance of a vegetated natural slope.
The front face of the unit includes an additional mesh layer to form a slim containment system into which quality topsoil is introduced. A geosynthetic matting is used to prevent the topsoil from spilling out through the mesh fascia. The core of the gabion unit is filled in the normal way.
