The Reno mattress is a structure made of hexagonal double twisted wire mesh. Reno mattresses are filled with stones at the project site to form flexible and permeable, monolithic structures such as river bank protection and channel linings for erosion control. The steel wire used to manufacture the mattress is heavily zinc-coated soft temper steel. The standard combinations of mesh is shown in Table. In order to reinforce the structure, all mesh panel edges are used with a wire having a greater diameter. Reno mattresses are uniformely  divided into partitioned cells by internal diaphragms.

Reno mattress, also called gabion mattress, revet mattress, is a type of container with hexagonal meshes and double or triple twisted structure. The revet mattress has relatively smaller height compared with gabion box. The gabion mattress is widely used in the riverbank protection, coastal protection and channel linings.

Different materials of reno mattress

Reno mattress can be made of different materials, according to different material, the reno mattress can be divided into different styles.

· Galvanized steel wire before fabrication. Using the galvanized steel wire for fabricating the reno mattress, which has excellent corrosion and rust resistance performance during using. But the zinc coating on the joints of gabions may slightly falling off during fabrication.

· Galvanized surface treatment after fabrication. Using steel wire for fabricating and then electric or hot dipped galvanized treated. In this way, the zinc coating will not destroyed during fabrication and supplier better corrosion and rust performance and longer service life.

· Zinc-aluminum alloy steel wire before fabrication. The aluminum added into the coating can supply additional protection for the gabion mattress. The content of aluminum is different. The Zn-5 Al-MM steel wire means 5% aluminum and 95% zinc coating, which is also called Galfan coating. It can also be Zn-10 Al-MM, which refers to 10 % aluminum and 90% zinc coating.

· PVC coated wire before fabrication. Cover the steel wire with PVC film, which can be green, gray and various other colors and then fabricate the gabion as usual. The PVC coated material can not only supply excellent corrosion and rust resistance, it can also make the revet mattress colorful and beautiful. The PVC coated wire is just suitable for woven reno mattress only.

· PVC coating after fabrication. For beautiful surface and blending with surrounding environments, the welded gabion mattress will be PVC coating surface treated after fabrication. It is widely used for different landscape construction applications and popular with artists.

Different styles of reno mattress

Reno mattress can be fabricated in different technologies, which is woven or welded into different mesh types and specs.

· Welded reno mattress. The main application of welded reno mattress is for decoration, such as landscape construction, fire place and planters applications. It can be used for slope protection as the woven reno mattress.

· Woven reno mattress. The woven reno mattress is a functional product, which is widely used for slope protection, coastal protection, river bank protection, channel lining, revetment and other protective applications.

Specifications of reno mattress

o Welded type: 1/4", 1/2", 3/8", 3/4", 1", 2", 3", etc.

· Height: 0.17 m, 0.23 m, 0.3 m, 0.5 m and customized.

Features of reno mattress

· Flexible. It can be made into different length, width and height to suit different applications.

· Eco-friendly. The reno mattress will not limit the growth of plant, the growing plant can make the gabion blend with surrounding environments.

· Corrosion and rust resistance. Galvanized steel wire, PVC coating steel wire and zinc-aluminum alloy wire all can supply excellent corrosion and rust resistance performance for durable and longer service life.

· High tensile strength. The reno mattress are made of high quality steel wire, which is high tensile strength to resist the high impact from tidewater, flood.

Applications of reno mattress

Reno mattress can be divided into functional application and decorative application.

· Functional application. It can be used as protective meshes, for channel lining, revetment, weirs for erosion controlling, coastal protection, river bank protection, slope protections.

· Decorative application. The welded reno mattress can be used as fireplace, planter, feature wall and various landscape construction projects.
