Metal gabion baskets are used in engineering to provide structural support with the advantage of quick installation. They consist of wire mesh cages filled with gravel and stones of various sizes. They perform the function of a load-bearing wall, with the advantage of being quick and easy to build, and just as quick to install.
Today, metal gabions are used for various reinforcement projects. These structures are resistant to lateral forces and can withstand static vertical loads, which is why they are often used as load-bearing and supporting walls. They consist of modular units, usually made of electro-welded or double-twisted mesh. The mesh can be either square or rectangular, while the metal wires usually measure between 4 and 5 mm in diameter.
