About Rhinoweld


RhinoWeld Welded Mesh Gabions are ideal for architectural applications such as letterboxes, garden seats, flower pots, retaining structures, feature wall claddings, sound walls, landscape features and many other applications that require the beauty of natural rock structures with the strength of the steel cage. You are only limited by your imagination!

RhinoWeld Gabions are available in a range of wire diameters from 2.5mm to 5.6mm. All wire conforms to international standards for tensile strength and tolerances and are manufactured to ISO9001 accreditations. The wire is coated in either a heavy zinc or Galfan protection that meets the international standards for both consistency and quality of such coatings. If required, we can additionally coat the product with organic PVC for extra protection, in a range of colours.

Gabion Kits


Whether you are using them for erosion control, earth retention, soil stabilisation, flood control or an eye-catching feature wall, Rhinoweld Gabions are a versatile and high calibre structure designed with a Galfan coating which allows it to last for years even under the most treacherous weather conditions.

To make your purchase even easier, Rhinoweld Gabion Kits are available which includes all accessories needed to construct a Rhinoweld basket easily and efficiently. No time wasted trying to calculate number of mesh panels or spirals, we’ve done the work for you!

In addition, if you are wishing to join multiple structures together we’ve done our best to make it more economical for you by designing an ‘add-on’ kit which provides you with the panels and accessories to join multiple Gabions together without having to waste money and supplies on buying multiple full kits.

BRACEHOOKS

These bracing wires are required to give the Weldmesh Gabion internal stability while it is being filled

SPIRALS

Spiral lacing wires are the most common method for joining the RhinoWeld weldmesh panels together. The standard pitch is 25mm and is engineered to provide a positive connection between all panels. Spirals will generally be supplied in either 0.5m lengths or 1m lengths to suit your order. Some minor on site cutting to specific lengths may be required.

When building a Rhinoweld Structure
How do I work out what I need?

RhinoWeld Gabions are highly efficient when using more than one unit as the adjacent panel of one unit is common to the same panel of the next unit.

For Example:

  • To create 1 unit – 1m x 0.5m x 0.5m, then you will need:
    • 2 end panels – 0.5m x 0.5m

      2 side panels – 1m x 0.5m

      1 top panel – 1m x 0.5m

      1 bottom panel – 1m x 0.5m

      2 Bracing wires – 500mm Front to Back

      8 x Spiral joiners – 500mm

      4 x Spiral joiners – 1m

  • To create 2 units of 1m x 0.5m x 0.5m, to make a 2m long wall, then you will need:
    • 3 end panels – 0.5m x 0.5m (saving 1 end panel)

      4 side panels – 1m x 0.5m

      2 top panel – 1m x 0.5m

      2 bottom panel – 1m x 0.5m

      4 Bracing wires – Front to Back 500mm

      12 Spiral joiners – 500mm

      8 Spiral joiners – 1m

  • To create 2 units of 1m x 0.5m x 0.5m, to make a 1m long wall and 1m high wall, then you will need:
    • 4 end panels – 1m x 1m

      4 side panels – 2m x 1m

      2 top panel – 2m x 1m

      1 bottom panel – 2m x 1m (saving 1 bottom panel)

      4 Bracing wires – Front to Back 500mm

      14 Spiral joiners – 500mm

      6 Spiral joiners – 1m

Things to Consider


RhinoWeld Gabions are supplied as flat packed panels and are assembled onsite with the use of spiral joiners or for larger scale projects, ‘C’Clips and a Lacing gun, which is available for hire or purchase through StrataGreen.

Large retaining structures can be formed with RhinoWeld Gabions. However, you should ensure that you seek the necessary statutory approvals for each project, which may mean engaging a qualified engineer who is accustomed to the design of gabion structures and who will evaluate the site, soil and drainage considerations of the project.

The choice of infill rock is yours, however you should consider which is the most suitable type that is congruent with the design requirements. There are many varieties of rock which enhances the physical appearance of the structure through texture, shape and colour. Recycled materials such as concrete or brick is also an option if the project complements. However, be cautious that that the infill rock is compatible with the mesh size of the gabion. For example, if using a 100mm x 50mm mesh gabion, we suggest a rock graded between 75mm and 150mm. Although the weight of the rock will depend on the material in use, you should allow roughly 1.8 tonne of rock per cubic metre of RhinoWeld gabion.

Rhinoweld Gabions are a modular unit composed of a number elements, all sold separately through StrataGreen. These include: End Panels, Base Panels, Top Panels, Side Panels, Bracing Wires and Spirals or ‘C’ Clips. The amount of panels required depends on the shape and size of your structure.
