Gabions can be beautifully installed as individual baskets in the garden. However, they are just as suitable for creating long or even higher walls. After all, gabions not only reliably protect against wind and the unobstructed view of neighbours, but also visually enhance the property with the colourful natural stones.
Thanks to the robust and durable properties of gabions, it makes perfect sense in such cases to extend or raise your building project with special add-on gabions. In the following, you will find out what characteristics the wire baskets have and which variants you can find at gabiona.de.
What are add-on gabions?
To build an entire wall, you start the gabion construction with a complete basket. Now our add-on gabions come into play. These are, in the broadest sense, incomplete wire baskets, which, compared to complete gabion sets, consist of one or two fewer grids. This makes them ideal for extension: for example, extend the basic basket of your patio enclosure sideways with add-on gabions. One of the central end grids can be omitted and the baskets are securely connected to each other. The special wire baskets are also ideal for raising a gabion wall. Here, too, one of the grids in the middle is omitted.
Add-on gabions are available in various designs. Depending on your project, you can choose the appropriate add-on basket that fits almost seamlessly into your gabion construction.
The properties of add-on gabions
Our add-on gabions, like the complete wire baskets, are made of galvanised wire. The high-quality coating ensures long-lasting protection against all weather conditions. The four millimetre thick wire is also extremely robust and the overall construction can withstand the usual erosion without any problems.
Add-on abions as an economical extension
To assemble your project with add-on abions, you need a basic element with all six lattices. The add-on baskets are attached to this with the open side. The spirals of the first basket are turned through the grids of the front or back of the add-on gabion at the same time. If you use C-rings for the connection, the attachment is done in the same way.
This ensures that the baskets are connected along the entire edge and the internal grid provides the greatest possible stability. Compared to buying a complete gabion set, mounted gabions are therefore an easy to assemble, resource-saving and inexpensive option - in two respects: you save one or more grids and do not need any additional connecting material.
However, make sure that the locking system, mesh size and depth are the same for both gabion baskets. In addition, we recommend an anti-tilt device for tall or slender construction projects - feel free to browse through our accessories for this.
The specifications for the height of the gabions on the property boundary can vary from municipality to municipality between 150 and 200 metres. It is best to inform yourself in advance about the local regulations.
Cultivation baskets at gabiona.de
At gabiona.de, you will find different types of add-on baskets:
1) Type 2 add-on gabions
The type 2 add-on baskets from Gabiona are characterised by a missing front grid. This makes them ideal for the lateral extension of a wall, a slope protection or a sofa made of gabions.
2) Attachable gabions type 3
We supply type 3 wire baskets without a base. This offers the possibility of raising your gabion structure. For example, you can extend your gabion wall to the maximum height of two metres or build a gabion tower that is a real highlight in your garden.
3) Attachable gabions type 4
For large-scale construction projects with gabions, it is often necessary to use add-on gabions that can be extended both laterally and in height. Our type 4 extension baskets are therefore available minus a side section as well as the base. This allows them to be inserted at the top of a row of gabions. Use type 4 add-on baskets, for example, to build a privacy wall or your patio border.
In addition, you can choose from a range of other features for the add-on gabions so that they match your existing gabion both visually and functionally.
- First of all, you have the choice between three different mesh sizes:
5 × 5 centimetres
5 × 10 centimetres
10 × 10 centimetres
- In addition, you can choose between the simple spiral closure or connecting your meshes with C-rings. It is best to use the same type of closure to ensure a uniform appearance of the stone basket.
After assembling and fastening your extension gabion, you finally select the suitable gabion stones in the necessary quantity for the filling. Here you have the possibility to set tasteful accents by using different coloured natural stones.
