Various types of metal wires are utilised in the construction of gabions, gabion-liners and metal mesh, distinguished by the following features:
Strong zinc plated wire
: woven with iron wire drawing, conformant to EN 10223-3 for its mechanical characteristics and UNI-EN 10218 due to its tolerance on diameters with a breaking load between 35 and 50 kg/mm2.
with eutectic alloy of Zinc + Aluminium (5%) - Cerium - Lanthanum conformant to UNI-EN 10244-Class A.
The wire may also be coated in a grey plastic material (PVC), especially useful in contact with the sea water or in particularly polluted areas.
