Our soil screw retention wall system reinforces the earth to construct gravity walls.
In this "soil nail" application, a screw anchor acts in a bearing mode as apposed to a grouted anchor, which relies on friction. Bearing plates are spaced along the entire length of the soil screw anchors. They are ready for immediate loading as soon as installed. This gives the soil screw retention wall system economic advantages.
Backhoes and skid-steer loaders can quickly rotate soil screw anchors into place. Anchor size and grid spacing are designed to local soil conditions and load requirements. A reinforced shotcrete veneer often is applied to the wall face.
