DURA-WELD GALVANIZED STEEL WELDED WIRE GABION MATTRESSES
Our DURA-WELD™ and DURA-FLEX™ Gabion Mattresses are MADE IN AMERICA - manufactured similarly as Gabion Baskets, however the plan area is larger in comparison to their depth
They have all the physical & mechanical properties to meet or exceed the requirements of ASTM A974-97 and ASTM A975-97
The base section of the mattress is divided into compartments and filled with stones at the project site
After filling, with lids secured, these mattresses form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures
We offer DURA-WELD™ Gabion Mattresses in welded wire mesh materials :
Fabricated from low- carbon steel wire, galvanized steel, galvanized & PVC coated steel and stainless steel
DURA-FLEX™ Gabion Mattresses are available in double twisted wire mesh in galvanized and galvanized and PVC coated steel
DURA-WELD™ and DURA-FLEX™ Gabion Mattresses offer a superior alternative to traditional methods of erosion control such as rip-rap or
They can be installed above or below water and require minimal site preparation
The purpose of a Gabion Mattress is to provide a base foundation for the Gabion Baskets and prevent undermining of Gabion retaining structures on waterways and coastal shoreline applications
Typical DURA-WELD™ and DURA-FLEX™ Gabion Mattress units range in size from: 9'x 6'' to 12'x 6' in increments of 6''- 9" and 12" depths
subdivided into 3' compartments
For applications on slopes greater than 1:2 or where water velocity is high or subject to turbulent flow conditions, it is recommended to have the diaphragm spacing reduced to provide compartments measuring 6'x1.5' or 3'x3'

SPECIFICATIONS - GALVANIZED & PVC COATED WELDED STEEL GABION MATTRESSES
MATERIAL: Gabion Matresses are made of pre-galvanized 13 Gauge welded steel wire mesh with a nominal mesh size of 3" x 1.5" and supplied in various lengths and heights. Standard dimensions are: 12'x6', 9'x6' and 6'x6' having depths of 6", 9" or 12". Dimensions for heights, lengths, and widths are subject to a tolerance of 5% of manufacturer's stated sizes.
FABRICATION: Gabion Mattresses are fabricated with the base, sides,ends, and diaphragms preassembled in the factory and shipped flat to the job site . Lids are shipped loose.
Mattresses are assembled at the construction site into a rectangular unit of the specified size. Where the length of the gabion exceeds its width, the gabion are divided by diaphragms spaced on 3' centers. Diaphragms are spaced on 1.5' centers for river or steep slope installations.
Gabion Mattresses are made according to ASTM A-974-97, all wire used in the fabrication of the gabion and in the wiring operations conforms to US federal specifications QQ-W-461H and possess a soft tensile strength with a class 3 finish 5 zinc coating in accordance with ASTM A-641. Preformed steel wire spiral binders with a 3" pitch are used to assemble and interconnect empty gabions and meet the same specifications as the wire used in the mesh.
After assembly, the individual gabion units are interconnected to each other nd then filled with clean, hard stone from 3"-6" diameter. The lids are then closed and joined to the top edges of the individual gabions and diaphragms. Hog ring fasteners may be used in lieu of lacing wire for forming individual baskets and joining empty baskets together.
PVC COATED GABION MATTRESSES
The same specifications as for galvanized gabion mattresses apply with the additional polyvinyl chloride (PVC) coating which will be fuse bonded onto the welded mesh as follows:
Mesh Wire .................. core only ...... 0.087" (2.2 mm)
Spiral Binders ............. core only ......... 0.106(2.7 mm)
Lacing Wire & Twist Ties....core only ..... 0.087(2.2 mm)
PVC Coating Thickness 0.015" (0.4 mm) minimum per side
