Product Description

Quality Gabion Mattress for Slope Stabilization

Gabion mattress is known as Reno mattress as it is firstly applied to Reno River in Italy. Gabion mattress refers to a rectangular structure similar to gabion baskets except its low height. Generally, a gabion mattress is composed of hexagonal double twist steel wire mesh or welded wire mesh panels as shown in the following two pictures.

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.


  • River bank.
  • Channel lining.
  • Foreshore foot protection.
  • Revetments.
  • Spillways.
  • Weirs.
  • Stream banks.
  • Sea wall.
  • Stable slopes.
  • Retaining wall.
  • Highway embankments.
  • Railway cuttings.


  • High durability - Made of high quality low carbon wire, our gabion mattress is strong and durable; meanwhile, all edges are reinforced with wire selvage for added strength. It can bear the heavy weight of dense hard rocks and has high shear resistance than traditional riprap so that it allows for better soil stabilization.
  • Superb permeability - The space between rocks allows for excellent drainage to reduce the hydrostatic pressure as well as ensure natural water exchange and ecological equilibrium.
  • Integrity - Gabion mattress can be divided into chambers by inserting diaphragms, meanwhile, independent units can be fastened together to form an integral monolithic structure - just using steel tie wire.
  • Environmental friendly - Gabion mattress, mounted on the bank of rivers and streams can effectively prevents soil erosion. Additionally, vegetation on the mattress improves the soil protection as well as decorates the surroundings.
  • Economy - The filling materials such as local rocks and stones are low-cost; meanwhile, they are easy to assembly and install not requiring skilled labor and large equipment. Drainage systems are also not needed owing to its high permeability. Most of all, they are long lasting and maintenance free if the design and construction are reasonable.

Beside above features, our hexagonal twist gabion mattress has excellent flexibility to adjust their own healing - that is way it has adaptability to various foundations such as those easy to subside and deform. But welded gabion mattress has lower flexibility yet more solidity and shape control. So you can choose the optimal one according to different mounting places of your projects.

Mounted hexagonal double twisted gabion mattresses are fastened together before rock filling.
Gabion mattresses can be fastened together to form integral unit for higher strength.
