What is the difference between Gabion and chicken wire?
Gabion and chicken wire are usually distinguished by materials and manufacturing methods. Some people say that Gabion is not made by chicken wire? Then you only said the right part. There is a Gabion that is actually processed from chicken wire. Then I will first introduce what is called chicken wire, and then introduce what is called Gabion.
Chicken wire is made of high quality wire (the reason why it is wire is because it is divided into many kinds, such as high carbon steel wire, low carbon steel wire is iron wire, hot galvanized wire, cold galvanized wire, dip wire, pvc wire .) It is twisted and twisted by a twisted wire machine. Therefore, it is also known as the twisted flower net. As the name suggests, chicken wire is a mesh with a hexagonal mesh shape. Also divided into: three twisted chicken wire and five twisted hexagonal twisted flower net. The chicken wire can be further processed into Gabion. It can also be used to control the hanging nets of hillsides. It is used to raise chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits and zoo fences, mechanical equipment protection, highway guardrails, stadium fences, road green belt fences. . In short, the application of chicken wire is particularly extensive.
There are also many types of Gabion, such as the deep processing of the chicken wire into a box-shaped cage for holding stones, which is a hexagonal Gabion. There is also the electric welding Gabion which is deeply processed by the welding wire mesh, and the hook flower Gabion which is deeply processed by the chain link net. Gabion fills the cage with a slab of stone, etc., after it is made into a box-shaped container. It can be used to protect and support seawalls, hillsides, roads and bridges, reservoirs and other civil engineering. It is a good material for flood control and flood resistance.
Although the main materials for processing Gabion are chicken wire, hook flower net and welded wire mesh, but the majority are chicken wire. So people often think that chicken wire and Gabion are the same thing. actually not. Hexagonal Gabion is just one of the deep processing products of the chicken wire. The chicken wire is just one of the main materials for processing Gabion.
