Alpha Gabion wall is a mass gravity retaining wall made of stacked stone filled in the wire mesh cage.
Alpha Gabion wall can be used in many applications either for slope stabilization, hydraulic and erosion control, shoreline protection, rockfall or for architecture and landscaping purpose.
Alpha Gabion basket are available in a variety of different sizes. It comes in 0.5m and 1m height and 1m, 1.5m, 2m, 3m or 4m long. The size of stone used for Alpha Gabion basket infill varies from 110mm to 250mm.
Alpha Gabion is required to have the following physical features:
Alpha Gabion structure allow water collecting at the rear to drain through without the aid of an expensive drainage system. Thus it prevent hydrostatic pressure at the back of the Alpha Gabion structure.
Flexibility is the main benefit of the Alpha Gabion wall. Since the basket is made from mesh wire and filled up with stone, the flexibility of a Alpha Gabion structure allows it to withstand pressure without deforming, breaking or cracking as in the case of reinforced concrete wall and other materials.
The strength and flexibility of the Alpha Gabion wall allows it to withstand the natural forces of flood, torrential flow and earth pressure.
Alpha Gabion has a very high resistance to atmospheric corrosion due to the well bonded zinc coating and extruded process of the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) coating.
Ease of Installation
The Alpha Gabion basket is easy to erect on site and easy to be place at site location. The rapid of construction makes Alpha Gabion wall is preferable compare to the other wall system.
