As the appointed partner of Maccaferri Africa in Kenya & Uganda, we supply reno mattresses & gabions produced from double twist woven wire mesh, with polymer coated option, or produced as weldmesh boxes & mattresses.
The gabion baskets and mattresses are manufactured to SANS 1580 with hexagonal woven wire Mesh Type 80 and 60, commonly referred to as double twist wire mesh. The steel wire used in the manufacture of gabions & mattresses is heavily galvanised to class A with zinc to zinc alloy coated wire. If required a polymer coating is extruded over the galvanised wire to provide added protection for use in aggressive marine environments where corrosion is present. Polymer coated gabions are ideal for use in river and coastal protection.
Both products are supplied in a variety of standard sizes. This system is used in standard applications in civil works but is also used to achieve a particular architectural aesthetic in buildings.
