Designing netted wire materials for use in holding soil can be a possibility nowadays with the wide range of applications that are found with modernised unique technology. There are companies involved in the making of mike reinforced pad, which is a form of big aluminium or steel net over a soil structure, thereby holding the pad with reinforced strength. Also, the variety in slope protection netting can be seen in case of such wire, for the purpose of holding the stone and solid materials from falling down certain slope. It can be used to prevent the fall or can be used to reinforce the surface to hold the materials on it tightly. Such netting can be made with reinforced steel or galvanised iron to provide strength as well as durability, an example of which would be the sack gabion over the surface that prevents the structures from pushing the gabion over. In a way, the stone inside the wire mesh or stiff compartments can be used to give the solid strength to the given wall.
• Sack gabion as the best example of strength and durability provided by wire reinforcement
Gabion structures have multiple uses in landscaping and construction work. These are actually large mesh of iron wire, which holds big stones and the gabion structures are then placed at given points to provide barrier which is highly stable. Although wire mesh network is common to bind and hold surfaces covered with stones or certain particular structure, as in mike reinforced pad, the slope protection netting is one of the commonest uses of such wire mesh structure.
But, with gabion structures, the strength is very much evident as the sack gabion can be placed on a given surface. It then becomes almost immovable because of the combined strength of all the stones contained inside this wire mesh structure.
