Gabions are constructions made of polymeric or metal galvanized netting, filled with pebbles, stones or gravel. They are used in a variety of situations, but most often – for bank protection structures, to protect the river bed from erosion, to strengthen slopes, to create terraces with a fertile layer, etc.
GeoSM” group of companies manufactures and sells gabions in small, medium and large quantities across Kazakhstan. We guarantee delivery of constructions to your sites at the most attractive prices and in the shortest possible time.
Gabion is a French word that means a large net or cage. Installed gabions look like large baskets filled with stones.
Modern gabions are a three-dimensional cellular structure, similar in appearance to a container. For their production they use a sturdy steel wire or metal bars, due to which the finished constructions are characterized by resistance to different kinds of influences, as well as by the even weight distribution among all the elements. The only enemy of quality metal – moisture, because of which the material oxidizes and rusts. To avoid it, gabions are made of zinc-coated steel or treated with polymers.
The gabion’s inner part is filled in with different solid and solid materials: natural stones, rubble, broken or whole brick, boulders, sea and river pellets.
Gabions are actively used in different spheres, since the constructions have many advantages:
– high strength;
– resistance to rupture;
– even distribution of the impact loads on all elements;
– environmental friendliness and safety for humans;
– air permeability;
– water permeability;
– filtering characteristics;
– easy installation that does not require the use of special equipment;
– easy installation in all conditions;
– resistance to corrosive processes;
– not subject to shrinkage of the ground;
– Long service life – up to 80 years;
– repairability – if necessary, it is possible to replace part of the construction.
Gabions are used today with a variety of purposes. Most often they are used for:
– Strengthening the shorelines of various bodies of water;
– ornamentation of garden plots;
– Strengthening the slopes of railroads;
– Construction of fences;
– construction of retaining walls;

– Strengthening of slopes;
– construction of tunnels;
– construction of private and industrial facilities.
We offer our customers a wide range of gabions in different sizes. We offer a wide range of gabions in different sizes:
|Length in meters||1,5, 2, 3 and 4|
|Width in meters||1|
|Height in meters||0,5 and 1|
|Wire diameter in millimeters||from 2,7 to 3,7|
For filling structures we use granite stone of various fractions – from 70 to 250 mm. Fraction should be chosen taking into account the purpose of the installed structure.
We can place an order for gabion fabrication according to individual dimensions.
