Gabion & Reno Mattress
Gabion & Reno mattress?is a galvanized double twisted hexagonal
woven mesh compartmented basket with a rectangular mattress shape.
The compartments or cells of the reno mattress are of equal size
and dimension and are formed by internal diaphragms.?Gabion &
Reno mattress?have been used for channel linings, river training,
soil retention, slope stabilization and other applications
successfully throughout the world for over 100 years.?
Double twisted?gabion & reno?mattresses?offer many advantages,
such as flexibility, durability, strength, permeability, ecology,
reliability, longevity, low cost and an aesthetic appearance. The
thickness of gabion mats is usually between 0.15-0.5m. It is
similar to gabion box which could be divided by several cells and
adopts thicker diameter wires to form mesh edge.
Features of Gabion & Reno mattress
One of the most important advantages of gabion & Reno
mattresses is their flexibility both for the individual unit and
the overall. The construction of the units permits it to tolerate
differential settlement without failure. This property is
especially important when a structure is on unstable soil
conditions or in areas where scour from wave action or currents can
undermine the toe of the structure and cause structural settlement.
Gabions & Reno mattresses built from high strength double
twisted hexagonal mesh filled with natural hard durable stone and
connected together to create a monolithic mass structure capable of
undergoing structural movement without any loss of structural
integrity creating a highly durable structure.
Gabions & Reno mattresses possess the strength and flexibility
to withstand forces generated by water and earth masses. The most
important and relevant strength characteristics pertaining to
gabion and reno mattress design standards are the mesh punch
strength, the mesh tensile strength, the pull apart resistance
strength of the mesh, and the corrosion resistance of the mesh. The
strength values of the double twisted mesh are located within the
individual product specifications for each product and are
represented in ASTM A975-97.
Gabions & Reno mattresses create structures that are naturally
free draining. Hydrostatic heads do not develop behind gabion and
reno mattress structures. Drainage is accomplished by gravity and
by evaporation as the porous structure permits an active air
circulation through it. Moreover, as soil is deposited and plant
growth invades the structure, transpiration further assist in
removing moisture from the soil being protected.
Low Construction Cost?
The installation of gabions & Reno mat is very cost effective.
The mattresses are easy to construct requiring limited equipment,
unskilled labor, minimal foundation preparation, no drainage
provisions, and low cost stone fill generally provided by a local
stone or rock supplier. Gabion & Reno mattress structures
require very little if any maintenance and if designed and built
properly can be a permanent structure.
