RIVER PROTECTION WORKS INTEGRATED INTO THE ENVIRONMENT
Reno Mattress Plus was tested and developed by
Maccaferri Innovation Center
in collaboration with Colorado State University
Traditional river bank protections realised with loose stones (rip-rap) require thick layer of material to be effective. This is due to the fact that the stones are not confined and that the stones layer cannot be accurately placed resulting in higher stone consumption and, consequenly, incrasing the environmental burden.
Traditional Reno Mattresses are over-designed river bank protections compared to the actual load they are subjected to.
Reno Mattress Plus is the result of the experimental tests at Colorado State University. A deeper understanding of the performance of the mattress enables us to make more cost-effective designs that will give to our solutions an increased competitiveness in comparison to equivalent and alternative (traditional) systems.
Reno Mattress Plus
features robust doble diaphragms enable to speed up installation also in steep slope conditions and minimising installation inaccuracies
the new self-standing tie developed to make installation easier and improve the structural performance of the mattress
LESS ENVIRONMENTAL BURDEN
Reno Mattress Plus creates a natural habitat for living species, enhancing biodiversity through the protection of the benthos
The interstitial spaces of the mattress offer an habitat for species that live in the transition zone between water and land.
Reno Mattress Plus is coated with PoliMac®, the revolutionary coating that can withstand the most aggressive environmental conditions.
