Pre-filled gabions have been developed for scenarios requiring non-conventional gabion installation such as emergency works, limited time possessions or projects with restricted access.
Enviromesh has developed the pre-filled gabion system to be fully LOLER-compliant and has conducted overload tests to 100% of the weight of the gabion. The Bi-Axial Welded Mesh Gabion units are delivered pre-filled with stone in a variety of specifications to suit the requirements of the project.
Enviromesh is proud to have undertaken many pre-fill and lift projects across the UK, for both permanent and temporary applications and for a variety of project types. This includes railway projects where site possession is time-limited, flood alleviation schemes and large scale projects with high public visibility.
How does it work?
Our pre-filled gabions are built on timber pallets during the fabrication stage. This allows contractors to easily and quickly lift the baskets for delivery and offload on-site. Pre-filled baskets are typically transported using an articulated lorry to maximise haulage. The gabion units can be delivered with or without offload, tailored to the individual site requirements. Once on site, the fully incorporated lifting slings are used to place the gabions into their final position. Specialist lifting beams are available for purchase from Enviromesh.
