Gabions & Mattresses for Slope Protection
 
 
Gabions and reno mattresses are commonly designed and constructed in a wide variety of configurations to provide long term slope protection solutions. Rofirm offers gabion and reno mattress slope protection design solutions that prevents soil erosion and scour, provides bio-engineering opportunities for surface vegetation, and/or stabilizes the slope against lateral earth pressure. The design engineer must consider the existing soil conditions, gradient of slope, applied loads, hydraulic impact, shear, and other factors when choosing the appropriate slope protection solution.
 
 
 
Advantages of gabion or reno mattress slope protection:
  • Standard design methods                         
  • Ease of construction
  • Low cost
  • Easily Vegetated
  • Free Draining
  • Flexibility
  • Durability
  • Roughness Coefficient
 

MATTRESS SLOPE PROTECTION
Slope Angle: 2h:1v or less
Solution: Standard reno or gabion mattress slope protection
Slope width: 3’-36’
Minimum Soil Requirements of existing slope:
Required internal friction angle of soil minimum 26 degrees.

 
 
 
 
 
 

STEPPED SLOPE PROTECTION
Slope Angle: 1h:1v or less
Solution: Stepped gabion slope protection
Slope width: No restriction
Minimum Soil Requirements of existing slope:
Required internal friction angle of soil minimum 33 degrees Select backfill may be required directly behind gabion protection. Earth anchor can also be utilized to resist lateral forces.
