The woven mesh system has the capability of withstanding unexpected and/or localized stresses due to ground settlements and scour by deflection while maintaining its structural integrity.
The stone fill allows the water to seep through the structure while retaining the soil, therefore no additional drainage is required to relieve the hydrostatic pressures.
Reno mattresses are available with different levels of coating protection for durability in a wide range of environments and climatic conditions. Reno mattresses are manufactured from coated wire offering about three time greater protection than zinc coated wire mattresses. Where Reno mattresses come in contact with more aggressive environments, an additional polymer protective coating is applied over the Haifeng coating to maximise the level of protection.
Reno mattresses are environmentally friendly products. The blending of Reno mattress structures into the environment is rapid and pleasing. The voids in the rockfill become progressively filled with silt, promoting vegetation growth which is essential to the preservation and maintenance of the ecological balance of the surrounding environment.
Cost Effective, Easy to Build
Reno mattress construction does not require skilled labor because they are very easy to build. Standard construction equipment can be used. Structures can be built in stages, if necessary, and baskets can be prefilled and launched to enable the installation under water.
