60x80mm Gabion Reno Mattress For Watercourse Regulation Weaved
Gabion mattress is known as Reno mattress, the material usually
used of Galvanized, Galfan and PVC coated wire, Generally, a gabion
mattress is composed of hexagonal double twist steel wire mesh or
welded wire mesh panels
Filled with rocks, gabion mattress creates an integral robust unit
for scour protection and erosion control from three aspects. Gabion
mattress efficiently improves the stability of river side slopes
and protects them from scouring through ensuring a natural
convection exchange between water body and earth. Meanwhile, it
increases the roughness coefficient of river bank owing to its
excellent shear resistance. In addition, green vegetation can be
planted to reinforce the slope and create more pleasing landscape.
GABIONS and MATTRESSES consist of rectangular units, fabricated
from a double-twisted hexagonal mesh. The gabion box is divided
into units by means of diaphragms positioned at approximately 1m
centres. Filled with stones, gabions become large, flexible and
permeable elements from which a broad range of structures may be
built. Gabions and mattresses are widely used for hydraulic and
geo- technical control such as retaining walls, riverbank
protections, weirs, channel linings etc.

Different Material of the Gabion,
Galvanized wire: Low carbon steel wire,diameter 2.0mm-4.0mm,the tensile strength of
the steel wire not less than 380Mpa,the surface of the steel wire
are protected by the galvanized coatings, the thickness of the zinc
coated can be customized.
Zinc-aluminium alloy steel wire:(Also called Galfan steel wire)this is a new popular material on
the international. The corrosion resistance of this wire is 3 times
of the traditional galvanized wire. The wire dia canbe 1.0mm-3.0mm,
and the tensile strength not less than 1380Mpa.
PVC coated wire: Twisted gabions after coating PVC on the surface of the low carbon
steel wire. The PVC coating can give great protection on the
heavy-pollution environment. And the alternatively colors can make
it harmonious between the gabions and the surrounding environment.
Advantages of Gabions
- Exemplary modularity and ability to stack in various sizes and
- Gabion structures are capable of resisting any types of stresses,
bending, tensile and shear.
- Gabion structures can accommodate differential settlements without
disturbing the structural integrity.
- The permeability characteristics of Gabion structures eliminate the
problems caused in RCC structures, such as soil instability, water
logged backfills/foundation etc.
- Gabion and gabion mattresses are backed with well documented
research and certifications concerning durability of the structure
Features of the Gabion
1.Easy to install: no special technology required.
2.Strong anti-scour : ability.able to withstand water flow speeds.
3.Good ductility :no structural joints.
4.High strength:with stand a wide range of deformation.
Applications / Uses of Gabions :
