Tiebacks and ANchors

Home  >  What We Do  >  Earth Retaining Structures  >  Anchors and Tiebacks

Used to avoid overstress due to large cantilever lengths, stressed anchors (tie-backs) are constructed by drilling holes through the wall and into the adjacent ground at a downward inclination.

Steel strand cables (tie-back cables) are inserted into the drilled hole which is then pressure grouted with cement mortar. Once the cement mortar hasset, a strand gripper and gripper casing are placed over the cables and tensioned using a hydraulic jack.
