Gabion Gravity Structures


Bank stabilization may involve the construction of a retaining structure that should not only effect the natural filtration between the watercourse and the bank, but also guarantee the required consolidation.


Furthermore, the presence of sub-grades and banks, that are normally saturated or which have unpredictable erosion phenomena, make the application of flexible structures a necessity. They must be able to withstand differential settlement without losing their structural integrity.


Gabion structures are the ideal solution on account of their flexibility, natural drainage capacity due to the stone filling, and the high structural resistance.

Ocean Caraibes are agents for Maccaferri the folks who invented the gabion backsets over 100 years ago. Maccaferri gabions are fabricated from high quality steel wire where long term durability is guaranteed by galvanizing with a zinc 1 aluminum-MM alloy (Galfan), that can be further protected by a polymeric coating and all of which comply with the highest international standards.
