CC can be fixed to gabions without any specialist equipment, using a variety of off-the-shelf hand tools, including hog-ringing, pigtail fixing or wire fixing.

Encapsulating a gabion structure in CC will protect the asset from theft or vandalism of the cage structure and/or fill material. CC will also protect the geotextile liner of a gabion structure from environmental and UV damage, preventing washout of the fines and loss of fill material, maintaining the structure’s integrity. CC will also mitigate water saturation which can lead to slump.

Prepare the substrate so that surfaces are well compacted, geotechnically stable with a smooth, uniform surface.

It is important to ensure that the CC is jointed at every overlap between layers and that those layers are fixed to the substrate.

It is important to prevent water or wind ingress between the CC and the substrate, both around the perimeter of the installation and along the joints.

It is important to properly hydrate CC, using enough water for the quantity of material used and allowing for drying conditions.
