Hesco Weldmesh® Concertainer® Gabions are wire mesh baskets formed by connecting individual panels of mesh with helical spirals on the vertical edge wires creating an open series of box compartments that fold in a concertina fashion to be flat packed. Lids and bases are sometimes supplied loose with helical spiral binders to connect the top and bottom of the open cells along one edge. Alternatively they may be factory fitted where practical for ease of transportation.

Gabions are engineered retaining structures designed as mass gravity walls to hold back earth or other solid materials without overturning, sliding or foundation failure. All Gabion wall designs should be checked by a suitably qualified structural engineer on site prior to construction.

The modular structure of these walls allows for variation in section to be accommodated as the height increases. The inherent strength of the units ensures structural and dimensional stability whilst a degree of flexibility accommodates ground movement and settlement where necessary.

Hesco Weldmesh® Concertainer® Bastions are formed in a similar fashion to Hesco Concertainer® Gabions but are factory lined internally with a non woven geotextile membrane to the perimeter mesh panels of the unit, allowing for the use of suitable selected granular fills to ensure compaction of the materials without any settlement.

These units are modular in section and fold in a concertina fashion for ease of transportation and erection on site. They are available in a variety of different sizes and lengths to suit the application. Bastions can be used as temporary or permanent structures on civil engineering construction sites or as rapid deployment flood protection barriers in place of sandbags in certain circumstances.

When used for permanent or temporary works they should be properly engineered as gravity retaining walls. For permanent retaining structures a suitable drainage fill should be incorporated through the structure at regular intervals along the wall length to prevent build up of hydrostatic pressure. Bastions are not free draining like stone filled Gabion structures. The inserted Bastion comprising a 3mm unlined compartment should always be specified for permanent works. This cell, which is filled with a Gabion stone, not only dresses the front of the wall for aesthetic purposes, but also serves to bury the geotextile face and prevent its UV degradation.

Hesco Concertainer® Trapions™ are a form of Gabion manufactured from welded wire mesh panels with either one or both faces inclined at varying angles to the horizontal dependant upon the unit’s height. They are supplied in lengths of 1, 2 or 3m or part lengths thereof, and pre-assembled with helical spirals for flat packing and ease of transportation to site.

Hesco Concertainer® TrapionsTM are engineered for dimensional rigidity and stability in structural Applications. Inclination of the walls, normally at around 8% degrees from the vertical, is essential for the stability of these gravity systems. They are trapezoidal in section to permit easy construction of free standing flush faced (non stepped) tapered walls, to act as either sound bunds alongside roads and railways dependant upon what they are filled with, or as simple, decorative perimeter walls. The wall ends are terminated with prefabricated trapezoidal shaped Weldmesh® panels.
