Usage Of Gabion Mattress In River , Lake And Sea Coast Projects
Gabion Mattress will revegetate over time as the structure collects soil and the
airborne or waterborne seeds of locally occurring plant life. This
spontaneous growth will create a very natural environment and will
increase the efficiency of a gabion structure as the plants enhance
the soil stability. It may be desirable to foster the growth of a
particular plant species and/or hasten the natural process of
vegetation. In this case, Eco Mattresses are the ideal solution.
Standard gabion mattresses fitted with a geotextile liner are
filled with graded stone; the stone fill is then saturated with a
quality soil medium - this may or may not be seeded. A natural
fiber mat is placed across the top and then the mesh lid is
attached to hold it in place. If the Eco Mattresses is not seeded,
it would be planted with small seedlings through the fiber mat.
Gabion mattresses material:
- Zinc 5% Aluminum - mixed rare earth alloy steel.
- Zinc 5% Aluminum - mixed rare earth alloy steel wire PVC coated.
- Hot dipped high galvanized steel wire.
- PVC coated hot-dip high galvanized steel wire.

Gabion reno mattresses treatment process:
Steel surface treatment using a double anti-corrosion zinc +
According to ASTM and EN standards, low-carbon steel wire diameter
varies based on the engineering design requirements. Generally
between 2.0 and 4.0 mm, the tensile strength of steel wire not less
than 380 Mpa, metal coating weight is generally higher than 245
g/m2, the edge of the line generally larger than the diameter of
cable diameter. The double stranded portion of length not less than
50 mm, To ensure that the twisted part of the wire metal coating
and PVC coating from damage.
