Although lined Concertainer units are often used in defensive applications, the versatility of the system enables it to be used in construction and public works projects, both large and small. A typical use is in the creation of retaining walls to stabilize and protect the foundation of buildings, roads, bridges and similar structures.
HESCO Concertainer gabions come in two basic types: the unlined Rockbox unit and the Rockface unit, a partially geotextile-lined Concertainer gabion, which achieves a decorative stone facing with a concealed sand or earth filled core. The construction of the gabions means that sharper planes of stone facing can be created than with traditional gabion products.
