Prefill and Lift is a service offered by Enviromesh to assist with the gabion installation when conventional means are not practical. The Bi-Axial Welded Mesh Gabion units are prefilled with stone at our Longton yard and delivered for application to site.

Prefill and Lift gabions are perfect for when you have a short time frame for completion, site congestion issues and limited access and storage issues. Enviromesh have already undertaken Prefill and Lift projects across the United Kingdom, for both permanent and temporary applications and for a variety of project types. This includes railway projects, flood alleviation schemes and large scale projects with high public visibility.

DELIVERY

Lifting straps are built into the gabion baskets during filling stage. Which allow you to easily 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, dependant on the individual site requirements. Lead time is subject to change so please ask at the time of enquiry.

The gabions were installed at the bottom of the Big Dipper as a retaining wall which bordered the ramp leading to the entrance of the hotel.
