Gabions and Mattresses
TeMa’s Gabions and Mattresses are wire mesh boxes, containers or baskets filled with rock to prevent soil erosion and to retain soil particles.
Gabions are typically used to reduce water velocities and recapture river bed sediment in streams.
Mattresses are typically used in river courses where soil erosion is problematic over large flat or slopes areas needing protection against soil loss or scour.
The steel used is of high strength and durable in nature conforming to SANS 1580.
Weldmesh options of 50mm x 100mm or 75mm x 75mm aperture sizes are also available.
