Substruck Ltd. can offer a range of slope stabilisation techniques for the most complex of projects. Our light-weight drilling masts can be employed from excavators of any size or scaffolding depending on the access limitations of the site.
Soil nails are used to enhance or maintain the stability of a soil mass, both natural and man-made, by the installation of reinforcing elements. This technique can be used in conjunction with a facing system such as shotcrete or rock fall netting.
We use simultaneous drill and grout systems to install soil nails. The tendon of the soil nail acts as a sacrificial drilling rod, load bearing element and injection point all in one. These nails are designed so that the high capacity steel hollow bar carries the majority of the load. The grout or drilling fluid suspension acts as a casing preventing collapse of the borehole.
