Gabions and rock mattresses

Gabions and rock mattresses are baskets or cages manufactured from heavily galvanized wire, and also with the addition of a PVC sleeve coating on the core wire.

Applications include:

  • Retaining walls
  • Weirs and drop structures
  • Culvert protection
  • Wing walls
  • Bridge abutment protection
  • Channel lining
  • Chutes and spillways
  • Landscaping
  • Rockfall protection netting (mesh)
  • Erosion control and stabilization.

Some of the advantages of Concrib gabions and rock mattresses include:

  1. Durability
  2. Our PVC coated wire gabions and mattresses are particularly well suited for an extended life in harsh and corrosive environments.

  3. Strength and flexibility
  4. Concrib' state-of-the-art gabions, rock-mattresses, and rock fall netting are constructed from double-twist hexagonal woven mesh. This provides inherent strength and flexibility. Also, if a wire is cut or broken the mesh cannot "unravel".

  5. Porosity
  6. Gabion and rock-mattress structures are porous to prevent build up of hydrostatic pressure and are able to withstand differential settlement.
