Mattresses are wider gabion structures compared to their height.

Gabion mattresses are mostly used against wave erosion and land consolidation, as opposed to erecting or supporting tall structures. Where water flow is high additional internal diaphragms may be used, in order to reduce the compartment sizes and prevent stone movement. Stone grading is essential for reaching the desired effects.

Matresses are build from double twist woven hexagonal wire, or alternatively from welded steel wire mesh. The mattresses lateral lids are often left open, for transportation purposes.

Most of the time mattresses are manufactured using lighter wire diameters, in order to increase their flexibility when protecting against erosion.
