Post-tensioned rock and soil anchors provide a cost-efficient, high-performance solution for projects associated with temporary and permanent soil stabilization. The compressive stresses resist the anticipated tension stresses induced by the soil movements, enhancing the performance over a non-prestressed foundation. Cost benefits are achieved by reductions in quantities of concrete, steel and excavations, which in turn reduce labor costs.
Advantages of using post-tensioningfor your next Rock and Soil Anchor project:
- Re-stressable: Re-stressable systems can be implemented for flexibility in working in areas with ground and building movement.
- Construction Time Reduction: A permanently anchored retaining wall can substantially reduce the cost and construction time.
- Resistance to Sliding and Overturning: Permanent dam tie downs increase its resistance to sliding and overturning.
- Cost Reduction: An existing wall can typically be stabilized with permanent anchors at a fraction of the cost of constructing a new wall – without disturbing the rock or soil behind the wall.
