Which One to Choose: Hollow Bar Micropiling or Solid Bar?
A micropile is a top-down operation using a single metal bar with a cement grout mixture to create a strong foundation for buildings or earth retention. Micropiles are small in diameter, ranging from a single inch to less than five, and are drilled into the ground and grouted with cement. A micropile is typically reinforced […]
Magnacore Self Drilling Anchors
Soil conditions can often make installation of conventional micropiles a challenge. Self-drilling anchors utilize a system of hollow bar injection-bore micropiles. Use of Intech Anchoring’s self-drilling anchor varies depending on the worksite, ground conditions, and size of the job. Project scope will determine which rig is appropriate for use. Voids, or the presence of underground […]
Intech Anchoring Systems Tiebacks
Tiebacks are an essential tool for reinforcing a building’s foundation, and to protecting the structural integrity of your home overall. A tieback is a helix-shaped reinforcement tool that can be drilled into a house’s foundation. It allows the weight to be transferred from the weak soil underneath to much stronger helical plates. The concept may […]
Using Hollow Bar Micropiles in Challenging Conditions
Though small in diameter, micropiles are incredibly strong. Designed to support loads in excess of 200 tons, they stabilize slopes, foundations, and structures at both shallow and deep depths. Because they can be installed in almost any subsurface, micropiles are one of the most popular and cost-effective support solutions. Installation is simple and rarely disrupts […]
