Reno Mattresses are units manufactured from double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh 6×8 type, made of Zinc coated wire. Reno mattresses are divided into uniformly portioned cells by internal diaphragms positioned at 1 meter lateral centres; the diaphragms are created by inserting an upright double-mesh fold in the base panel, which improves diaphragm stability during filling operations.
Reno mattresses are filled with stones at the project site to form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures such as river bank protection and channel linings for erosion control projects. In order to reinforce the structure, all mesh panel edges are selvedged with a wire having a greater diameter.
Named after one of the first interventions carried out by Maccaferri over 100 years ago, the Reno Mattress® is now synonymous with hydraulic works and erosion protection projects worldwide.
Maccaferri Reno Mattresses® are cages, engineered from double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh. Delivered flat-packed, they are assembled and then filled with stones at the project site to form flexible and permeable, monolithic structures such as river bank protection and channel linings for erosion control. Reno Mattresses® are divided into uniformly partitioned cells by internal diaphragms.
Our Reno Mattresses® are made from high quality steel wire, which is heavily galvanised to provide long term corrosion protection. An additional protective polymeric coating is also applied for gabions that are to be used in more aggressive environments, or where a longer design life is required.
Maccaferri new PA6 polymer coating has been added to our range of protective coatings to offer a solution to those projects that require improved environmental and technical performance to the existing PVC and HDPE coated mesh products on the market.
Our Reno Mattresses® are manufactured in our factories around the world. The management and production system in many of our factories is certified in compliance with ISO 9001.
In selected factories, the mesh is produced in compliance with CPR – Construction Product Regulation 305/2011, having EC marking in compliance with ETA-09/0414. The management and production system is certified in compliance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 (related to the environmental management system).
