Earth Anchor Systems

Permanent or temporary earth retention systems play a significant role in your project’s cost and schedule. In addition to time and money, an inherent concern with shoring systems is the risk associated with the potential for earth movement. Our earth retention systems involve retaining soil that is subjected to either a natural, unstable slow or an excavation, and often supporting existing, adjacent structures.

We offer different types of earth retention systems that suit a range of soil retention situations. Intech Anchoring has full engineering capabilities to design the most practical and economical soil retention system for your geotechnical conditions.

Tieback Anchors

Intech Anchoring supplies tieback anchors for earth retention systems. Helical tieback anchors are straight rods that strengthen earth retention systems and retaining walls. We rotate and screw them into the ground on one end and secure them to the wall on the other to install them.

Our Magnacore Self-Drilling Anchors combine drilling, placing, and grouting into one step. The AB Chance Helical Tieback System has helical bearing plates welded to a central steel shaft. The load is transferred from the shaft to the soil through these bearing plates. Read more here.

Soil Nailing

Soil nailing involves installing steel reinforcing bars and anchoring them into the soil. This earth retention system works best for soft soil that’s prone to landslides. The steel bars prevent the soil from sliding out of place.

Intech Anchoring’s soil nails are hollow, threaded steel rods utilized to stabilize slopes and structures at shallow or deep depths. Learn more about the Magnacore Soil Nail wall system here.

Ground Screw

Ground screws, also known as soil screws or earth screws, consist of a helical end-bearing plate welded to a central steel shaft acting as a large-scale “earth screw” that is drilled into lateral walls for support.

At Intech Anchoring, we use AB Chance Helical Ground Screws to laterally stabilize soil behind temporary and permanent walls. Read more about AB Chance Helical Ground Screws here.
