|Diameter of Wire||Minimum Weight of Coating gr/sq.m|
The adhesion of the zinc coating to the wire should be such that when the wire is wrapped six turns round a mandrel of 4 times the diameter of the wire, it does not flake or crack to such an extent that any zinc can be removed by rubbing with the bare fingers.
All wire used in the fabrication of the gabions and in the wiring operations during construction shall be mild steel wire having and average tensile strength of 45 kg/mm2.
All edges of gabions including end-panels and the diaphragms, if any, shall be mechanically selvedge in such a way as to prevent raveling of the mesh. The wire used for the selvedge shall have a diameter greater than that of the wire used for forming the mesh, namely: for gabions made of wire having a diameter of 3.0 mm the selvedge shall be of wire having a diameter equal to or greater than 3.9 mm.
Sufficient lacing and connecting wire shall be supplied for all the wiring operations to be carried out in the construction of the gabion work. The quantity of such wire is estimated to be 8-10 percent of the weight of the gabion basket supplied.
Gabions might incorporate diaphragms to form cells having a length not greater than one and a half times the width of the gabion.
A tolerance of ±2.5 percent is permitted on the diameters of all wires utilized.
