Gabion boxis a three dimensional structure made of metal mesh double
twisting, used for filling with stone to protect sea shore and
retaining wall construction. Its design is dividing gabion box into
sections by mounting diaphragms inside every meter in length.
Standard wire diameter 2.7 mm, the diameter of the edge wire (the
gabion framework) 3.4 mm. Aperture of 8x10 cm and 6x8 cm gabion may
be arbitrary, but must take into account the stability of the
