Reno Mattress: The Ultimate Guide

Reno mattress is made of high quality low carbon steel wire or surface plastic-coated pvc machine woven into the hexagonal net, mainly used for slope protection, river bed paving to prevent erosion and so on.


Reno mattress also known as gabion mattress, refers to the thickness of the machine-woven hexagonal metal mesh surface is much less than the length and width of the cushion engineering components, the thickness of 0.17-0.3m cage structure, used in the field for filling stones. Mainly used for river, bank slope, subgrade slope protection structure. It can not only prevent the river bank from being destroyed by water flow and wind wave, but also realize the natural convective exchange function between the water body and the soil under the slope, so as to achieve the ecological balance. Planting green on the slope can add landscape and greening effect.

The difference between Reno mattress and gabion mattress and stone cages is that the height of the mattress is low, and the structure is flat and large, The diameter of the coated steel wire is smaller than that of the lattice, and there are generally two kinds of double partitions (steel wire diameter 2.0mm) and single partitions (steel wire diameter 2.2mm). The commonly used double partition Reno mattress has the advantages of convenient construction, slope protection can effectively prevent stone collapse and increase the anti-erosion ability of the structure.


1. Improve the stability of river bed slope.

2. Protect river bed from erosion.

3. Provide a predetermined value of riverbank roughness coefficient (m).

4. Afforestation and ecological protection of slope protection and bank protection.

5. Convenient constructio.


(1) Galvanized steel wire

High-quality low carbon steel wire, the diameter of the steel wire 2.0MM-4.0MM, the tensile strength of the steel wire is not less than 380Mpa, the surface of the steel wire is protected by hot dip galvanizing, the thickness of the galvanized protective layer is made according to customer requirements, and the maximum amount of galvanizing can reach 300g/m2.

(2) Zinc-5% aluminum-mixed rare earth alloy steel wire:

Also known as Golfan steel wire, which is a new material emerging in the world in recent years, corrosion resistance is more than 3 times that of traditional pure galvanized, the diameter of the steel wire can reach 1.0MM-3.0MM, and the tensile strength of the steel wire is not less than 1380Mpa.

(3) a layer of PVC protective layer on the surface of the steel wire, and then woven into various specifications of hexagonal nets. This layer of PVC protective layer will greatly increase the protection in the highly polluted environment, and through the choice of different colors, it can be integrated with the surrounding environment.




The length of the double-wire twisted part shall not be less than 50mm to ensure that the metal coating and PVC coating of the twisted part of the steel wire are not damaged.

(2)Wire diameter:

1. The range of mesh wire is 2mm-4mm

2. The edge wire is generally larger than the mesh wire, with a thickness of 0.5mm-1mm

3. The binding wire is generally smaller than the net wire, and the most common is 2.2mm

(3)Steel wire tension:

Not less than 38kg/m2 380N/mm
