Inner wire is the main wire material to form the gabion mattress. Edge wire is only used on the edge of the gabion box. Lacing wire is the connection material for connect those hexagonal panels. Normally the wire diameter for edge wire is the biggest in the three type of wires and lacing wire is the smallest. Diameter 3.4mm (edge wire) / 2.7mm (inner wire) / 2.2mm (lacing wire) is the most popular design. The mesh size of hexagonal mesh has to measure the inner mesh. 120mm* 100mm / 100mm * 80mm / 80mm * 60mm are all popular mesh size design in global market. The size of gabion mattress are usually big size 6m * 4m or even bigger, so the partition is necessary to be set up in the mattress.
