Heavy Galfan + PVC Coated Woven Wire Mesh Gabions
Changte has developed a new product: GalFan +PVC Coate woven wire
mesh gabions.Popular mesh opening applied: 80x100mm. One diaphragm
every one meter (or at 3ft center) is positioned to divide the
gabions into cells. This structure makes the whole gabion flexible
and easy to handle. This type of woven or knitted mesh gabion has
selvedge wire and lacing wire for reinforcement. All mesh panel
edges are selvedged with a wire having a greater diameter than the
woven or knitted wire.
Special Coating Material: Galfan (zinc-5% aluminum alloy) and its
Galfan gabion gets its name from its wire material: a kind of heavy
Galfan (zinc-5% aluminum alloy) soft tempered steel . Compared with
traditional galvanized steel gabions with pure zinc coating, Galfan
gabion features a heavy zinc – aluminum coating layer which enables
an excellent corrosion resistance. The corrosion resistance of
Galfan gabion doubles that of traditional pure zinc plating.
Wire Material Requirements:
The pvc coating for our Galfan Gabions can be checked below (take an example of the 80x100mm galfan
gabion), from the changes of the wire diameter before and after
Knitted or woven wire: 3.7mm after PVC coating (2.7mm heavy Galfan before pvc coating)
Selvedge wire: 4.2mm after PVC coating (3.2mm heavy Galfan before pvc coating)
Lacing wire: 3.2mm after PVC coating (2.2mm heavy Galfan before pvc coating)
Zinc plating or galvanization required for the Galfan Gabions:
Galvanization on Kitted & Lacing wire: Heavy GALFAN (ZnAL) min 245gr/m2
Galvanization on Selvedge wire: Heavy GALFAN (ZnAL) min 255gr/m2
The steel wire used in the manufacturing of the gabion is heavily
galfan( [Zn-5 Al-MM] alloy) coated soft temper steel. A PVC coating
is then applied to provide additional protection for use in
polluted, contaminated or aggressive environments: in salt, fresh
water, acid soil or wherever the risk of corrosion is present. The
PVC coating has a nominal thickness of 0.50 mm to 1.00mm. Galfan plus PVC coating gabions, simplified as Galfan gabions, are strong and durable for long term uses.

Applications of Galfan Gabions:
The Galfan gabion boxes or mattresses are filled with stones at the
project site to form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures
such as retaining walls, channel linings, and weirs for erosion
control projects. Details as following:
