GroSoxx® Gabion is the next-generation gabion solution.
A gabion is usually a cage, cylinder, or box filled with rocks, concrete, sometimes sand and soil for use in civil engineering, road building, military applications and landscaping. Filtrexx® Gabions systems utilize our GroSoxx® technology. GroSoxx Gabion is a structural vegetated armoring technology used to stabilize and prevent erosion of waterway and shoreline banks. GroSoxx Gabions combine the benefits of soft and hard armor technologies to provide maximum structural protection, erosion control, vegetation growth, and vegetation reinforcement in one system.
GroSoxx Gabions are specifically designed for applications where water flow and intense hydraulic pressures typically undermine vegetation growth. GroSoxx Gabions combine heavy duty tubular mesh netting material, used to contain and stabilize custom growing media and vegetation placed within the gabion basket, and drip tape irrigation (optional) to ensure establishment and sustainability of seeded and/or live stake plantings. The weight and anchoring system is designed to withstand concentrated water flow velocities and hydraulic shear stresses similar to traditional soft armoring devices (brush mattresses, coconut fiber logs, turf reinforcement mats) and hard armoring devices (rip rap, rock gabion baskets).
