ANCHORS, TIE-DOWNS, AND SOIL NAILS
PressGrout piles are superior to the competition for a number of reasons. First, they have a large-diameter footing that both compacts soils around the tip of the pile, and acts as an additional bearing pad for the pile.
Second, PressGrout Piles can be installed at any angle to support lateral loads. Our piles have a particular advantage for structures that require a high level of lateral resistance because of seismic, wind, or hydrostatic soil or water loading.
In addition, PressGrout Piles can be used in clusters to further expand their load-bearing capacity. By utilizing a customized design of angled and vertical piles, a unique solution can be tailored to the needs of the project at hand. Earth or rock anchors generally consist of steel elements grouted in a drilled hole. The bars or strands are subsequently tensioned. This provides lateral or vertical force to resist movement of a retaining structure. Anchors are often used for excavation support, or as a part of permanent retaining walls, or to resist up-lift forces on foundations.
Soil nailing is an economical technique for stabilizing slopes. Tie-downs are used to secure structures from turning over caused by lateral or seismic loading.
The Pressure Grout Company has developed equipment and expertise for installing micropiles and spaces with very limited headroom. If your projected has limited headroom or limited space, call us to discuss.
