1. How is a REDHEN gabion built?

REDHEN gabions have the form of a cuboid which is made of a strong, welded mesh.
A standard mesh consists of:

  • cold-bending C-CHANNELS of a size: 20x8x2mm – horizontal elements
  • and BARS of a size phi: 5,00 mm – vertical elements

C-channels are located in the distance of 200mm each, whereas bars, which are put through the holes made in C-channels, are located in the distance of 50mm each. The connection places of c-channels and bars are welded, then the whole mesh is galvanized (EN ISO 1461 norm). Gabions should be assembled using the stainless screws attached.

 

2. What is the completion date of an order?

The completion date is about 20 working days after the date of making an order.

 

3. Are the gabions enlisted in the standard price list available on the spot?

Great variety of gabion sizes makes the „on the spot” availability impossible. The products enlisted in the standard price list are the ones whose prices are the most advantageous while the completion time might be the shortest.

9. Should the gabion deflection raise my concerns about its durability?

Small deformations of gabion baskets, in particular such components as lintels, which are laser-cut out of sheet metal, are not a product defect. Deformation of these elements is the result of the hot-dip galvanizing process, intensified by the pressure of the stone that fills the baskets. The disturbing effect of deformation by the mass of stone is intriguing and generally accepted feature of this architectural solution. As for concerns about the strength of such elements, they are absolutely groundless.

 

10. What is a bracing element/ a brace?

A bracing element/ a brace is an appropriately finished slat that protects a gabion from deformation. Great mass of stone that fills up a gabion means great powers that keep on pushing on its walls. It is very important to place the braces correctly because it's up to them to maintain any gabion's „good shape”.
