Home Earth Retention Soil Nailing

Soil Nailing

Soil nailing drives or drills steel rods at precise angles and depths, which are then overlaid by wire mesh and shotcrete. This strategy can be part of a stabilization system or a stand-alone tool.
The walls are generally constructed from the top down. Soil is excavated from the top of the planned excavation. Near-horizontal holes are drilled into the exposed face.
Steel bars are inserted into the holes and grouted. A drainage system is installed on the exposed face, followed by the application of reinforced shotcrete facing.
