Stone Mattress (also called: gabion mattress, Reno mattress, soil bed mattress)
Place of Application:
The stone-filled mattress, when built-in, constructs a flexible, monolithic structure ensuring free draining and can be applied with great efficiency and in a modern way:
- the protection and support of river and channel waterfronts,
- lake bed covering, bed protection,
- highwalls’ erosion prevention,
- against devolution or slumping.
The bed mattresses are resistant even to the strongest water flows and helps us to create a natural-looking river or stream bed.
The mattresses are relatively large in area and thin elements which are constructed to a honeycomb structure (one gap is 6x8cm) from a double-twisted wire mesh. To strengthen the system, all the edges receive an extra strutting by the integration of a metal wire of greater thickness. In each panel, there are diaphragms installed in every meter which are double folded from the mesh itself and not from separate elements, resulting in a more durable product. After the filling process, the meshes are also covered with honeycomb-structured mesh coat as to protect the structure. This protective cover is offered to the customer as a separate extra product (Illustration 1.).
The Reno mattress can be built on site, but in certain cases e.g. in case of a steeper aslope or an urgent project, the mattress can be filled with the stone in advance and the product is ready for installation on site. Due to the bars placed in the diaphragms, the structure can also be levered when already filled-up. After installation the bars can be removed through the sides.
The steel wire constituting the mattress frame (with diameter of 2.2mm) receives Zinc or Aluminium-Zinc plating. PVC coating (nominal breadth: 0.5mm) is also applied in special cases e.g. in harsh, salty, acidic environment or under permanent water wash or cover.

Environmental friendliness -
The Reno mattresses are environmentally friendly products. The installation of the stone mattress structures into the environment is executed fast and problem-free. As time passes, the gaps among the stones will be filled up with mud, thereby nourishing plant initiation. This is essential for the preservation and maintenance of the ecological balance of our environment.
The Double-twisted Mesh fits with flexibility to the ground and reacts to the possible changes of the surface, meanwhile keeping the structure’s functionality and efficiency.
Free draining -
The stone filling ensures free draining while also stabilizing the terrain (bed or waterfront), therefore the installation of any drainage system is unnecessary.
Cost-effectiveness, easy installation -
The construction does not require a specially professional labour, as it is easy to build. If necessary, the mattress can be cut to shape, but in this case, an extra anti-corrosion coating is needed to the cut edges.
