Gabions

—  Stone filled baskets to stabilise soil & prevent erosion

Description: 

Gabions and Reno® Mattresses are wire baskets filled with rock and laved together to form permeable, monolithic, environmentally friendly and flexible structures which perform favourably compared to concrete and loose rip-rap.

Benefits: 

Woven mesh Gabions and Reno® Mattresses are tried and tested engineering systems which are able to handle flow velocities up to 8m/s.
The voids within the rock fill allows the establishment of vegetation, eventually re-creating the pre-existing environment. The use of biodegradable erosion control blankets will accelerate the vegetation process if required.
A pneumatic lacing tool is available for use with Gabions and Reno® Mattresses. The tool is proven to almost half the assembly time on site.

Applications: 
  • Creek banks
  • River banks
  • Marina’s
  • Spillways
  • Channels
  • Culverts
  • River training
  • Wetlands
