- 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.
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.
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.
