Rock and Soil Anchors
We can install rock and soil anchors and tie-backs for ground support for the foundation.
Rock anchors are high strength steel bars or strands that are drilled and grouted into the underlying rock and are generally used to:
Anchor uplift forces
Anchor tipping forces
Stabilize slopes foundations rock walls and cuts
Soil anchors are high strength steel bars or strands that are drilled and grouted into the underlying soil and are generally used to:
Support structures for excavations such as sheet pile walls, soldier piles and lagging.
Transfer external forces to the ground; e.g., wind, earthquake
Stabilize material or excavated slopes
Both types of anchors can be pre-stressed. A design load tension is put on the anchor. In order for the anchor rod or the structure it is anchoring to move the tension force has to be exceeded.
