Reno mattress surface treatmentReno mattresses are available with
different levels of coating protection for durability in a wide
range of environments and climatic conditions. Reno mattresses are
manufactured from Galmac (Zn-5%AL MM alloy) coated wire offering
about three time greater protection than zinc coated wire
mattresses. Where Reno mattresses come in contact with more
aggressive environments then an additional polymer protective
coating is applied over the Galmac coating to maximise the level of
