The Military Bastion Barrier is a modern Gabion Baskets used for flood control and military fortification. It is made of a collapsible wire mesh container and heavy duty fabric liner, and used as a temporary to semi-permanent dike or barrier against blast or small-arms. One of the less heralded life- and labor-saving devices of war, it is used on nearly every United States Military base in Iraq as well as on NATO bases in Afghanistan.
This kind of gabion barrier has been on hand to aid civil engineers with a wide range of environmental issues for over 10 years. Originally designed to combat the effects of coastal erosion, this excellent gabion baskets has since been used extensively throughout the world for other civil engineering applications.
The versatility of a Gabion Barrier Concertainer structure enables it to be used across a variety of applications such as coastal erosion, flood protection, river and bank stabilisation, retaining walls, land reinforcement and soil conservation.
A galvanized steel unit lined with geotextile fabric, hesly gabion barrier is completely assembled during manufacture, ensuring rapid installation. Available in a wide range of sizes, units can be joined and extended using the provided joining pins. The primary advantage of the product is its ability to utilise locally available fill material to rapidly construct walls and other structures with minimal manpower and resources.
Assembling the Bastion Gabion Barrier entails unfolding it and (if available) using a front end loader to fill it with sand,Welded Gabion Box,gabbione Black Wire Cloth, dirt or gravel. The placement of the barrier is generally very similar to the placement of a sandbag barrier or earth berm except that room must generally be allowed for the equipment used to fill the barrier. The main advantage of Military Barrier, strongly contributing to their popularity with troops and flood fighters, is the quick and easy setup. Previously, people had to fill sandbags, a slow undertaking, with one worker filling about 20 sandbags per hour. Workers using Military Barrier and a front end loader can do ten times the work of those using sandbags.
