Bulk Stone Supplier in Gauteng: Uses of Gabion
As a leading gabion stone supplier in Gauteng, we deliver bulk quantities to construction, engineering, roadworks, and landscaping sites.
As a leading sand and stone supplier, we offer the following:
- Selected dump rock consisting of screened crushed stone in sizes from 80 to 200 mm. The material is used for erosion control, landscaping, earthworks, retaining walls, filling, and gabion walls.
- Unselected dump rock consisting of unscreened crushed stone in sizes ranging from 1 to 200 mm for landscaping, earthworks, filling, walls, and foundations.
The rocks are often used for walls and retaining walls. In this type of application, the dump rock is placed in specially manufactured cages. The materials as available from us as a bulk supplier in Gauteng, are extremely strong and can take a lot of compressive force. These systems have a low environmental impact, as trees and other plants can be planted to cover the gabion. The dump rock does not require the creation of holes to release water pressure behind the retaining structure. With significantly more pore space for water to flow through, they are ideal for landscaping applications and to prevent rockfalls on mountain passes.
The dump rock has a long history of applications, such as gravity retainer walls, reinforcement of soil, the lining of water channels, as part of structures for training rivers, and for the protection of dam embankments. The rock is also used in culvert construction, as part of bio-filler systems, in hydro-chamber applications, and for crusher walls in mines. The gabion is likewise used in landscaping to create retainer and landscape walls. The mass-gravity type, also known as the dry wall, is used for applications such as river mattresses, whilst the wet wall is used where the riverbed has soft soil and a more flexible mattress is needed. The rock is, furthermore, used to stabilise embankments to reduce the risk of rockfalls down the slope.
