Bridge Protection System
Gabions can be employed in a variety of ways to stabilize soil conditions around bridges, bridge piers and bridge abutment slopes. Generally the angle of the slope to be protected shall determine what structure type is best suited for each application. Slopes with an angle of 1on1 or steeper require standard Gabion retaining wall protection. Slopes with an angle of 1 on 1.5 or less may use a gabion or reno mattress slope protection.
Reno Mattress is a double twisted hexagonal woven galvanized steel wire mesh compartmented basket with a rectangular mattress shape. The compartment or cells of the reno mattress are of equal size and dimension and are formed by internal diaphragms being placed within the basket providing even distribution of the stone fill throughout the mattress even after structural movement. Even distribution of the stone fill ensures that the reno mattress maintains intimate contact with the foundation soil.
Main characteristics of bridge protection system:
1. Good adaptablity: adapting to the deformation of the groundwork.
2. High flexibility: not likely to be broken, bearing a large range of deformation without collapsing
3. With both penetratabiliyt and non-penetratability, damage caused by fluid static power is prevented.
4. Anticorrosive and washing-away-resisting, high resistance to natural damage, bad climate, quake and impact.

Galfan gabion mesh is particularly suitable in strongly corrosive soil and water, normally it could provide corrosion protection that are up to 3 times higher than other gabions, therefore it is an ideal choice when corrosion control is a predominant factor to consider.
3mm galfan gabion mesh refers to the gabions that are made of 3mm steel wire that has been dipped into 5% or 10% Zn-Al alloy solution whose corrosion resistance is three times greater than that of normal zinc coating.
Heavy hexagonal mesh is made from low carbon steel wire or stainless steel wire with big diameter through twisting and braiding by machine. 60X80 heavy hexagonal mesh is one of our most popular product.
