Reno Mattress for slope & embankment protection
The construction of new roads and the widening of existing
highways often involves major excavation works and the
construction of embankments which expose earth and rock
faces to weathering by rain and wind. The protection
of road and railway embankments often require the same
type of protection that may be required for hydraulic
works or slope stabilization in order to counteract
not only superficial erosion but also the erosive effects
of watercourses, a lake or the sea.
In such cases prefabricated concrete elements are often
used which may come away from the slope surface and
which do not allow restoration of natural vegetation.
The use of Reno mattress revetments has provided outstanding
solutions in a variety of applications, and because
of their strength provides stability to the embankment
while promoting a rapid regrowth of natural vegetation.
When a natural slope needs to be modified, any changes
must be made in order to fit the new slope to its surrounding
while loose rock slopes must be properly protected to
prevent the rocks from falling onto roads or railways.
