Steel wire and wire products for fencing and netting - Part 8: Welded mesh gabion products

This European Standard specifies requirements for the mechanical properties, dimensions, coatings, test methodology and delivery conditions of welded mesh gabions products. The general meaning of welded mesh gabion is a metallic box made of welded wire mesh to be filled with stone or other suitable material. Only the characteristics of the metallic cage are subject of this document. Filling materials, e.g. coarse armourstone, are covered in other standards. This document covers gabions produced from welded wire fabric and accessories coated with a zinc coating, a hot-dip galvanization or a zinc-aluminium alloy, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or stainless steel. Accessories include complementary materials such as spiral binders, rings, lacing wires, tie-rods or spacers.

Füllmaterialien, z. B. grobe Wasserbausteine, werden in anderen Normen beschrieben.
Dieses Dokument behandelt Steinkörbe und Zubehörteile für Steinkörbe, die aus einem geschweißten Gitter mit einem Überzug aus Zink, z. B. durch Feuerverzinken aufgebracht, oder einem Überzug aus einer Zink-Aluminium-Legierung oder mit einer Beschichtung aus Polyvinylchlorid (PVC) oder aus nicht rostendnichtrostendem Stahl gefertigt sind. Zubehörteile sind z. B. Spiralbinder, Ringe, Bindedrähte, Spannstangen oder Distanzhalter.
1.2   Bestimmungsgemäße Verwendung
Zur bestimmungsgemäßen Verwendung der zu prüfenden Bauprodukte gehören folgende Anwendungen: Bodensicherung, Bodenbefestigungssysteme, Ausbau von Flüssen (Sohl- und Uferbefestigung), Erosionsschutz, Böschungssicherung, Schallschutzwände, Zäune, Landschaftsbau, Abdeckungen oder Verkleidungen sowie architektonische Zwecke.
Das nachstehende Bild 1 stellt einige relevante Beispiele für die Anwendung von Steinkörben dar.

Jeklena žica in žični izdelki za ograje in mreže - 8. del: Varjene mreže za jeklene žičnate košare (gabione)

Ta evropski standard določa zahteve za mehanske lastnosti, dimenzije, prevleke, preskusno metodologijo in dobavne pogoje za varjene mreže za jeklene žičnate košare (gabione). Splošni pomen varjene mreže za jeklene žičnate košare je kovinska škatla iz mreže iz varjene žice, ki se napolni s kamni ali drugim ustreznim materialom. V tem dokumentu so obravnavane samo lastnosti kovinske kletke. Polnilni materiali, npr. grobi cestni kamen, so obravnavani v drugih standardih. Ta dokument zajema gabione, izdelane iz varjene žice, in dodatke, prevlečene s cinkovo prevleko, vročim cinkanjem ali z zlitino iz cinka in aluminija, polivinilkloridom (PVC) ali nerjavnim jeklom. Med dodatke spadajo dopolnilni materiali, kot so spiralni vpenjalniki, obroči, vezne žice, vezni drogi ali separatorji.
