Box-shaped wire baskets that are filled with durable rock fragments and used as retaining walls or for erosion control. The gabions were positioned where they were needed and filled with rock fragments.
The sack shape was replaced by a box shape in ; the box-shaped gabions could be placed in efficient arrangements and connected to each other with wire fasteners. The primary use of gabions is for stabilizing slopes. Typical applications along river channels were related to erosion control. The rock-filled containers maintained their positions simply because of the combined mass of rock fragments act as a gravity retaining wall.

Gabion retaining structures are rectangular wire mesh baskets filled with rock at the project site to form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures, such as gabion retaining walls for commercial, industrial and road projects. They are also used for erosion control for bank stabilization, channel linings, and gabion weirs. Gabion strength lies in their double-twisted hexagonal mesh of steel wire which is reinforced by selvedges of heavier wire running along the edges and by transverse diaphragms. The wire will not unravel even when cut. Assembly is easy, requiring no specialized labor and nearby rock is used for fill. Gabion retaining structures are available with different levels of protective coating for durability.
Maccaferri® Gabion Baskets
Maccaferri Gabions are a trusted, technically sound way to retain earth and combat soil erosion. Maccaferri Gabions are rectangular woven wire mesh baskets that can be filled with rock to create flexible, permeable structures such as retaining walls for architectural, mining, industrial and road projects. They are also used for erosion protection, weirs and bank stabilisation and to create architectural and design features. Their strength comes from a double twisted hexagonal mesh of steel wire, reinforced by heavier gauge wire along the edges and internal diaphragms. Maccaferri Gabions have been widely used across Australasia for over 50 years. Maccaferri Gabions can withstand high shear stresses and earth pressures and can be easily adapted to site conditions.
