There is a wide variety of hard armor solutions to solve more extreme erosion control challenges. From gabions to cabled concrete, these products can provide considerable erosion protection for river and stream slopes, channel lining, levees and other high erosion situations. Hard armor solutions, if designed properly, can be both effective in erosion control and still provide a green solution.
Gabions are a box cage-like structure primarily made of steel wire mesh and PVC coated. Used for stabilizing slopes and steams and retaining walls. Our gabions are assembled and then filled with stones at the project site. Gabion baskets are made from high quality steel wire, which is heavily galvanized to provide long-term corrosion protection. An additional protective polymeric coating is also applied for gabions that are to be used in more aggressive environments, or where a longer design life is required.
