Reno Mattresses

Reno mattresses are similar to gabions; however, they utilize smaller stones and are typically between six and 12 inches in height. Applications include channel linings, steep slopes, and river bank stabilization. Reno mattresses offer outstanding resistance to moving water. Their modularity make them effective erosion control materials.

Like gabions, reno mattresses are primarily made of steel wire mesh. Galvanized steel wire is most common, but PVC-coated wire is often used for longer life in water or aggressive environments.
