Gabion Large-scale Water Conservancy Projects
Gabion mesh has permeability. The gap between mesh stone provides a sufficient water area, reduces the hydrostatic pressure, and needn't special drainage and splintery concrete devices. As protective projects in places with heavy wind and waves, spaces among the stones substantially resolve the role of wind and waves when waves hit the mesh mat. The vacuum suction produced when storm generated has also been damaged, so gabion mesh can effectively achieve the protective effect.
The pore in the green grid boxes and mats creats the conditions for water flow. It's conducive to achieving the natural exchange between water and soil, and creates the living environment for the aquatic life and micro-organisms, thus enhancing the self-purification capacity of water bodies, protect and improve waterspring and water quality. Filling the pore through artificial laying of soil or natural soil deposits, it creates the conditions for virescence and vegetation. Even if without sowing seeds it will naturally grow plants, to achieve optimization, landscaping, improve and restore the ecological environment.
In the water conservancy project, the application of gabion net is very economical. Gabion mesh system,which consists of steel wire cages and fillers, has a lower cost than the general building materials. Filler is available as long as it is weather resistant and has a certain intensity. Usually, different levels of stones in the project sites can be fillers. Sometimes they could even use some clean construction waste as a filler, so cost low. Particularly in poor locations, it can save the foundation treatment costs which take a larger proportion in total project.
