Closing of Gabions
 
 
  After the rock has been levelled and the voids minimised, fold the lid down and pull edges of the panels together. It should require a light stretching using an appropriate closing tool (Figure 10) or lid closer in order to bring the two gabion pieces together. Care shall be taken that the mesh is not de formed or the coating on the wire damaged. The projecting selvedge wire of the lid shall be wrapped two complete turns around the selvedge wire or edge wire on the sides.
     
The lid shall be tightly tied along all edges, ends and tops of diaphragms. Adjacent lids may be tied or attached simultaneously. All projecting sharp ends of wire shall be turned in on the completed gabion structure.
