Stone cages, also known as gabion walls, are wire mesh containers filled with rocks or other materials used as retaining walls or erosion control structures. The cages are typically made of galvanized steel or PVC-coated steel wire mesh and come in various sizes and shapes to suit different applications.
Stone cages are often used for retaining walls because they are strong, durable, and flexible. They can be used to build walls of different heights and lengths and can be easily customized to fit the site's specific needs. The wire mesh allows water to flow through, reducing the risk of hydrostatic pressure build-up behind the wall, which can cause failure.
The rocks used to fill the cages are typically chosen for their size, shape, and weight to ensure stability and prevent movement or erosion. Common materials used for filling the cages include quarried rock, river rock, and recycled concrete.
Retaining walls for highways and bridges
Landscaping and garden retaining walls
Erosion control along riverbanks and shorelines
Slope stabilization in hilly or mountainous areas
Flood protection barrier
MacMat HS is the next-generation of high performance geomats, combining a three-dimensional matrix polymeric geomat reinforced with Maccaferri’s Steelgrid system. It is used for demanding slope face stabilisation applications which require a combination of erosion protection and surficial stabilisation.
Strength and Durability: Stone cages are made of high-quality wire mesh that is strong and durable. When filled with stones, they create a solid, stable structure that can withstand the pressure of soil and water.
Flexibility: Stone cages can be used in a variety of settings, including slopes, riverbanks, and coastal areas. They can also be used to create curved walls or other unique shapes, making them a versatile option for retaining walls.
Drainage: Because the cages are filled with stones or other porous materials, they allow water to drain through the wall rather than building up behind it. This reduces the risk of water damage or erosion.
Cost-effective: Stone cages are often less expensive than other types of retaining walls, such as concrete or masonry walls. They also require less maintenance over time, making them a cost-effective option for many projects.
Environmentally friendly: Stone cages are a sustainable solution because they use natural materials and require minimal energy to manufacture. They can also provide habitat for wildlife and promote soil retention and erosion control.
