Exciting news from Spain

“With the stones placed in your way, you are able to build something beautiful.”
Erich Kästner


For example gabions …
Our Spanish distributor Muroxs Obra SLU, Sils, recently reported on one of his new projects in Tossa de Mar, where gabion baskets made by Rothfuss Best Gabion were installed with a regional stone filling.

The picturesque town of Tossa de Mar, with its historic old town quarter and fortress, is located in a scenic bay on the Costa Brava, between cliffs sloping steeply down to the Mediterranean Sea.

The project is about a privately owned villa on the coastal road with a fantastic sea view.

The installation was done with ROKO – the traditional gabion baskets made by Rothfuss Best Gabion – consisting of electro-spot-welded, steel-wire mesh-grids, wire size Ø 4,5mm and mesh size 10x5cm.

The main decision criteria for ROKO have been the guaranteed product quality:

  • Tensile strength: 450 N/mm2
  • Coating:
    • ZnAl coat (Zn 95% / Al 5 %) minimum thickness
    • According to DIN EN 10244-2 accuracy class A
  • Corrosion resistance: min. 3.000 h salt spray testing according to DIN EN ISO 9227-NSS

and the option to do on-site adaption of the gabions.

The stone filling was made of the regional stone “Pedra de Tossa de Mar”.
Of course, the grain size was bigger than the selected mesh size.

There are many different ways to build up a successful market-orientated and strategic partnership. One of them is…

As of late our Spanish sales partner Muroxs is bound for the Spanish streets with his new fleet of vehicles to introduce the topic of gabions even to the most distant corner of the country.

The eye-catching design of the vehicles attracts not only the interest of the experts in the field of gabions, but also the curiosity of a vast populace.

The Rothfuss Best Gabion team wishes Muroxs “a safe journey”, success and good strokes of business!
