Gabions and gabion mattresses, primarily made of steel wire mesh, are box-like structures typically filled with rocks and used for:

        Retaining walls

        MSE walls

        Channel linings

        Stream bank protection

        Bridge abutments and wing walls

        Culvert headwalls, wing walls, and scour aprons

The gabions are commonly used in double-twisted wire and welded wire configurations, but are also offered with PVC-coated wire for applications in water or corrosive environments.
