Gabion Mattresses

Detail introduction of products:

Gabion mattress is also called Reno mattress. Gabion mattress is a structure made of hexagonal double twisted wire mesh. Its thickness is far thinner the width and length of the mattress engineering components. They are filled with stones then connected into one. Reno mattresses are used for river bank and scour protection, channel linings for erosion control with the features of flexibility and adaptability of foundation.

Gabion mattress is the mesh basket construction with the width of 0.15 - 0.3m. Gabion mattress is mainly used for foot protection structure of river, foreshore and side slope of sub grade. It can avoid the river bank suffering by water and storm, realizes the natural convection exchange between water body and earth mass, and achieves the ecological equilibrium. The plants on the slope increase the landscape, the afforested the environment.

Gabion mattresses are divided into chambers by inserting diaphragms. In order to strengthen the mattresses, all the edges of the mattress are selvedged with a wire of greater diameter.

Application of Gabion Mattresses:

Reno mattress are used for permanent erosion control in channels, stream banks, spillways and stable slopes from surficial erosion. The stone confinement within the units allows for higher shear stress resistance than the riprap. Soil bioengineering techniques can be used to promote vegetation in the gabion mats to provide enhanced shear resistance. Some other applications include: highway embankments, channel linings, slopes and embankments, railway cuttings.

Gabion mattress features:

  • improve the stability of river bed slope
  • protect the river from being prevented erosion.
  • Increase the roughness coefficient of river bank
