Gabion Mattress

River mattresses are stone boxes with a special form, in large expansion and flat shape. They consist out of hexagonal, Multiple shielded steel wire , thick galvanized with a mesh size 60x80mm and  a diameter 2.2mm. The base element is a continuous metal net and a mechanically fixed partition. Throughout this a multicellular box arises. The partition strengthens the strengthens the structure and makes the assembly easier.

Product Details
