Application of Stone Cages
Stone Cages can be used for slope support, pit support, mountain rock face hanging net spraying, slope vegetation (greening), railroad highway isolation barrier net, it can also be made into box cage, net mat, used for river, dam and sea pond anti-scouring protection, reservoir, river interception with net box.
The most serious disaster of rivers is that the water scours the river banks and damages them, causing flooding, resulting in a lot of loss of life and property and a lot of soil erosion. Therefore, when dealing with the above problems, the application of the ecological grid structure becomes one of the good solutions, which can make the riverbed and riverbank protected for a long time.

Parameters of Stone Cages
1.Aperture: 60*80mm, 80*100mm, 80*120mm, 100*120mm, 120*150mm, 90*110mm
The length of the twisted part of the double wire shall not be less than 50mm. to ensure that the metal plating and PVC plating of the twisted part of the wire is not damaged.
2.Wire size: gabion mesh is divided into three wire sizes – mesh wire, side wire, tied wire
(1)The range of mesh wire is 2mm-4mm
(2)The edge wire is generally larger than the mesh wire, 0.5-1.0mm thicker than the mesh wire
(3)Binding wire is generally smaller than the wire, with 2.2mm being the most common.
3.Steel wire tension: not less than 38kg/m2 380N/mm
(1)Electroplated zinc: The amount of zinc on is 10g/m2. poor corrosion resistance
(2)Hot-dip galvanizing:The amount of zinc coating can reach 300g/m2. The corrosion resistance is strong.
(3)Galvanized (zinc-aluminum alloy):Such is divided into two materials, zinc-5% aluminum-mixed rare earth alloy steel wire, zinc-10% aluminum-mixed rare earth alloy steel wire.
5.PVC package plastic:The thickness of the package plastic generally package 1.0mm thickness, for example: 2.7mm after the package for 3.7mm.
(1)Partition: add a partition every meter in the long direction of gabion mesh
(2)Size: can be customized according to the standard
(3)The range against which the aperture and filament diameter

Advantages of garden cages for stones
1. Ideal ecological construction and ecological restoration function
The pores within the gabion box and mesh create conditions for the flow of water, which is conducive to the natural exchange between water and soil, creating a living environment for water organisms and microorganisms, thus enhancing the self-purification ability of water bodies, protecting and improving water sources and quality. Fill material void by artificial laying soil layer or natural deposition of soil, for greening, vegetation to create the conditions, even without seeds, will naturally grow plants, to achieve optimization, beautification of the environment, improve and restore the ecological environment.
2. Good water permeability
The retaining wall and paved slope made of mesh box, the filling material in the mesh box is loose body, there are more pores, which is conducive to the discharge of pore water in the soil layer under the masonry and slope, once the surface water is infiltrated into the soil, it can be discharged through the masonry faster, which effectively reduces the groundwater level, thus reducing the groundwater pressure after the wall and under the slope. The gabion structure in landslide management and mudflow control project, water timely discharge reduces the chance of wall damage, while the good deformation ability of the wall can effectively buffer the sudden external force impact.
3. Excellent stability and overall function of water permeability function
Gabion mesh is a special machinery woven into the double twisted mesh structure, local damage, will not cause box cage integral damage. Gabion mesh has moderate deformation characteristics, the whole project is connected into a whole, no need to divide the seam, even if there is uneven subsidence, the overall structure will not produce cracks or serious problems.
4. Easier construction method
Gabion mesh process according to the design intention, factory production of semi-finished products, the construction site is assembled according to the design drawings, and then laid on the finishing of the soil slope or excavated pits, paved into a retaining slope or masonry into a box cage retaining wall, filling materials, plus the cover network is completed. The operation is simple, less disturbed by the climate, and suitable for mechanized operation, can ensure the quality of construction and can speed up the progress of the project. In a construction unit construction process, due to the influence of the weather, the construction unit will make slurry stone retaining wall workers transferred to do gabion mesh slope protection.
5. Very good landscape effect
The easy combination of gabion structure and the diversity of colors can provide us with a variety of structural designs to meet the landscape requirements of different areas. At the same time, combined with planting lawn, planting flowers and trees will present us with a green retaining wall or slope.
6. Excellent corrosion resistance and durability
The steel wire of gabion mesh adopts hot aluminum zinc plating process, the steel wire surface plating is more stable, which can effectively reduce the oxidation of the mesh wire. After coating resin film process, it has the characteristics of corrosion resistance, anti-static, anti-aging and anti-oxidation, and longer service life. According to the test, the plastic is soaked in 30% concentration of hydrochloric acid for 10 days, the plastic has no discoloration and no rupture. This shows that this material is absolutely reliable even in highly polluted areas. The service life of steel wire coated with resin film can reach 70 years.Get more information.
7. Stronger resistance to scouring and wind and wave attack
The gabion mesh structure is used as slope protection or retaining wall project on the river with high velocity, with strong anti-scouring ability. According to the relevant experiments, the anti-scouring coefficient of gabion structure is twice of the general stone throwing protection project. Even if the stones in the gabion mesh retaining mat are displaced by water scouring, the deformed cage structure will produce a new balance and the overall integrity will not be damaged. The gabion structure is a flexible structure, the box cage is filled with stones or other materials with certain gaps, when the wind and wave crests shoot up, the waves are crushed, reducing the impact of wave pressure; when the wind and wave crests recede, because the box cage has gaps, destroying the vacuum suction of the wind and waves, and reducing the damage to the protection project, plus the overall structure can be fine-tuned by itself when the wind and wave force acts, which can effectively avoid cracks in the wall.
