Gabions and Reno Mattresses
Gabions are modular steel wire structures used in retaining wall, channel lining, and erosion protection applications. They are either galvanized or PVC-coated and can be stacked in various configurations to meet site conditions.
Reno mattresses are mainly used for channel lining, steepened slopes, and streambank stabilization. They offer outstanding resistance to moving water making them an effective flood control measure. Galvanized steel wire is most common, but PVC-coated wire is often used for longer life in marine environments.
