Gabion Mats Finish: Zinc Coating and Plastic Cover

Gabion Mats (Reno Mattress) Description

The Reno mattress is a structure made of hexagonal Low carbon steel wire. Reno mattresses are filled with stones meeting certain requirements to form protection structures. The Reno mattress general specifications is the 0.15m - 0.3m thick, 2m wide and 6m long.

The Reno mattresses are divided into uniformly partitioned cells by internal diaphragms. In order to reinforce the structure, all mesh panel edges are used greater diameter wire.

The reno mattresses is low, and its production technology and production process is the same with gabion cages. The Reno mattresses is not only time-consuming process, but also more waste material. Thus, its price is slightly higher than the price of the same quality common gabion cage.

The reno mattresses uses

Reno mattresses are used for river bank and scour protection, channel linings for erosion control, and embankment stability. They are filled with rock at the project site to form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures to promote rapid growth of natural vegetation. Slope zhilv can be added to the landscape, greening effect. Been named reno mattresses, because it first used in Reno River in Italy.

Reno mattresses material

  • Zinc 5% Aluminum - mixed rare earth alloy steel.
  • Zinc 5% Aluminum - mixed rare earth alloy steel wire PVC coated.
  • Hot dipped high galvanized steel wire.
  • PVC coated hot-dip high galvanized steel wire.

Reno mattresses features

  • Flexibility: low-carbon steel wire as a combination of structure, reno mattress has a strong flexibility to adapt to the local subsidence deformation of foundation and protected body. Reno mattresses can adjust their own healing, to prevent the continued development of the deformation.
  • Durability: the Reno mattress is a structure made of hexagonal woven Low carbon steel wire, with hard rock combined to form a very large overall durability.
  • Environmental Friendly: Reno mattresses are filled with stones Meeting certain requirements to form protection structures. In the waterfront environment, the voids in the rockfill become progressively filled with silt, promoting vegetation growth which is essential to the preservation and maintenance of the ecological balance of the surrounding environment.
  • Permeability: The stone fill allows the water to seep through the structure while retaining the soil, therefore no additional drainage is required to relieve the hydrostatic pressures. The Reno mattress ensure natural water exchange with the natural groundwater, further strengthened the environmental effects.
  • Integrity: the reno mattress constituted by independent units, but between each adjacent unit has steel wire twisted, so it has good integrity.
  • Economy: the stones reno mattress required is gravel or pebbles, so the stones cost is low. Reno mattress construction does not require skilled labor because they are very easy to build. No drainage system, limited construction equipment can be used. If the design and construction is reasonable, the structure is long life and no maintenance.

Reno mattresses treatment process: Steel surface treatment using a double anti-corrosion zinc + plastic cover.

According to ASTM and EN standards, low-carbon steel wire diameter varies based on the engineering design requirements. Generally between 2.0 and 4.0mm, the tensile strength of steel wire not less than 380Mpa, metal coating weight is generally higher than 245g/m2, the edge of the line generally larger than the diameter of cable diameter. The double stranded portion of length not less than 50mm,To ensure that the twisted part of the wire metal coating and PVC coating from damage.
Note: ASTM is American Society for Testing and Materials abbreviation; EN is European standards.
