Ground Anchors & Soil Nails

Ground Anchors are structures used to resist tension loads. These are usually designed to transfer the applied loads from shallower depths to deeper ones where soil conditions are more stable or more compressible. Anchors can be realized in diameters ranging from 100 up to 300 millimeters and in lengths ranging from 15 to 70 meters in vertical, horizontal and inclined positions. These support elements can be utilized for various construction purposes in short- or long-term loading applications, depending on the structural design requirements. For smaller and lighter load applications (mostly in slope protection requirements), Soil Nails with diameters ranging from 50 to 120 millimeters, are commonly used.
