We supply geotextiles with gabions for draining and filter needs in most bank protection construction projects. Geo-textile fabrics normally have a thickness of 0.5 to 3.0 mm, in 4 - 9 m width and various length. As geosynthetic materials, the non woven geotextiles are mainly used in construction and engineering of channels, ponds, tunnel construction, water conservancy projects, aquaculture industry, as well as other filtering applications.

2xlx0.5m rock gabion mattress
Supply of geotextile layer (filter cloth)
Gabions and Placing
Elongated shape shall be placed with their flatter and elongated faces in contact with the mesh wherever possible. The empty gabions shall be placed to line and level as shown on the Drawings or as directed by the Engineer and then stretched so that the gabions regain their shape on being filled.
Diaphragms shall be provided at not more than 1m intervals for baskets and not more than 0.6 m intervals for mattresses. A gabion shall not be completely filled until the adjacent basket or mattress has been half filled, unless otherwise directed, in order not to cause displacements from bulging during filling.
For baskets, at least two horizontal connection wires shall be tied between front and back of the gabion in each Im compartment, at a height of300 ram and 600 mm from the bottom as the stone fill reaches these levels. Additional tie wires shall be provided if necessary and in no case shall the gabion basket bulge by more than 40 mm. Where a continuous line of gabions is required, adjacent gabions shall be securely tied together at the top and bottom of the gabions with tying wire.
The gabions shall be filled to a level just sufficient to require the lid to be forced into place with a
bar. The lid and all joints between baskets and between diaphragms and baskets shall each be
tied down with a continuous running wire.
Where gabions are to be shaped, the shape shall be formed by folding the mesh internally and tying it with a continuous running wire.
All tying wire shall be galvanised and of same gauge as specified for the cages above.
Geotextile Cloth Materials Placing
Geotextile filter doth shall be made of non-woven polyester material with a minimum weight of 270 g/m2 and minimum thickness of 2.3mm.
The material shall be placed carefully on suitably cleared surfaces, such that tearing or piercing is avoided at all times.
Continuity at horizontal and vertical joins shall be achieved with a minimum overlap of 0.6m. Overlaps may be physically sealed using spot welds with an open flame aad subject to approval of the Engineer. On a horizontal join, the new layer shall be placed on the outside and backfilling shall proceed carefully to ensure that full contact of the join overlap is maintained. On a vertical join, the new layer shall be placed on the inside, and backfilling shall proceed such that contact is first on the outside layer, thereby sealing the inside layer to prevent soil migration between the overlap.
The filter shall consist of well-graded natural or manufactured aggregate having the following gradation. The filter material should pass a 75mm for minimising particle segregation and bridging during placement. Also the filter must not have more than five per cent (5%) of material finer than that passing a 60 micron sieve to prevent movement of fines within the filter.
The graded filters shall consist of stone graded to. meet the requirements indicated below.
|Class||Size of particles d(mm)||Percentage smaller than particle size|
The filter shall be placed in layers and tamped into place in such a manner that mixing between layers or between the filter material and the formation to be protected, shall not occur. Care shall be taken to ensure that segregation of sizes does not occur. The minimum thickness of each filter layer shall be 250 mm.
All materials are in accordance to international standards ASTM, BS, DIN etc.
Gabion Containers (depth x heigh) 0.61m x 0.61
Gabion Containers (depth x height) 1.0m x 1.0m

During all periods of shipment, land transportation and storage, the geotextile fabric shall be protected from direct sunlight, ultra violet rays and temperatures greater than 60°C. The fabric shall be maintained wrapped in its protective covering.
The geotextiles shall have NO defects, tears, punctures, deterioration, or damage during manufacture, transportation, or storage.
Torn or punctured sections of fabric may be repaired by placing a patch of the same geotextile fabric over the damaged area prior to placing the rock under layer. The patch shall be large enough to overlap a minimum of 1000mm in all directions and shall be stitched up at the edges.
The prepared area shall be checked prior to placing the geotextile fabric. Fabric may not be placed thereon without the approval of the professional engineer.
Geotextile fabric shall be placed manually and ballasted with due care.
