Mattress Gabion

Mattress Gabion

Word gabion comes from “large cage”. As the name implies, Gabion Basket is the name of the twisted pair high galvanized /PVC coated baskets woven into geometric shapes, such as square, rectangle which are higher than 30 cm in size. Mattresses are rectangular steel wire fence cages like gabions. However, mattresses are shorter than 0.50 m. Mattress gabions are used in sea and river protection and improvement, erosion control applications road and railroad structure construction.

Mattresses are rectangular steel wire fence cages like gabions. However, mattresses are shorter than 0.50 m. Mattress gabions are used in sea and river protection and improvement, erosion control applications road and railroad structure construction. See .Fig I Mattress tolerances are ±3% for length and width and ±2.5 for height. Sides of the mattresses are surrounded with thicker side wires to reinforce them like gabions (See: Table I). Mattresses with lengths over 2 meters are generally reinforced by separating with wire fence panels called diaphragm into 1 meter cells. GEOART produces gabion mattresses with 6×8, 8×10 cm pore areas and Ø2.00mm to Ø2.70 mm wire thicknesses for wire fence. For additional corrosion resistance there are PVC coated gabion mattresses baskets. Our gabion mattresses are in compliance with TS EN10223-3. All wires and tie wires used in production of Heavy Galvanized Wire Gabion Baskets have rupture strength of 38-55kg/mm. rupture strength of the wires and wire diameter tolerances comply with BS102/80. Above values are before the wire is woven.

Gabion Mattress:
Gabion baskets are folded and compressed after production for easy loading/unloading and lower transportation costs. Additionally each lot is drawn with painted stripes to distinguish dimensions. Retaining structures, roads, railroads, erosion prevention, slope protection, riverbed improvements, basin improvement, port works, shore protection, bridge approach fillings and manholes, land border trenches...

Advantages of Gabion Structures
1. Flexibility:
Twisted pair hexagonal wire fence is resistant to large forces by structure. Furthermore, it adapts itself to miniscule displacements without breaks or cracks.

2. Durability:
Galvanized wire fence has a very long life. When coated with PVC, its service life extends even further. Additionally, twisted pair wire cage does not disentangle life wire fence, when a wire snaps.

3. Self-Drainage:
Gabions have porous texture when filled with rock and stones. Porous texture auto-drains by not holding water behind and prevents water force to accumulate.

4. Economy:
Gabion structures are very economical compared to traditional. Furthermore, they require very little maintenance (Life Long economy)

5. Strength:
Gabion structures can absorb huge amounts of energy and can operate for decades, even under natural stress, they can perform without problems for decades.
