Controlling water flow in streams, channels and similar locations is essential for protecting infrastructure and the environment.

Using gabions and mattresses in locations such as dams and waterfalls, and to protect riverbanks, stabilizes the soil and permits plant growth to form a green cover.

Gabions and mattresses have been used throughout the world for over a century – rock fill gives this solution a natural look. Considerable know-how enables detailed design of structures while calculating the static and hydraulic forces required of each.

Advantages of using gabions and mattresses:

  • Stabilization of slopes, river banks and shores, as well as protection against erosion
  • Fitting into the landscape and integrating plants, stones and water
  • Simple implementation
