Soil Retention with Magnacore Anchors

Earth retention systems are constructed to provide support where deep excavations are made or slope stability is a concern. The design of these systems must consider movement control, stability during construction and wall drainage.

Magnacore SDA’s can be utilized for jobs specified for:

  • Slope Stabilization with Soil Nails
  • Soldier Piling & Lagging with Tiebacks
  • Tieback Anchors

Tieback Anchors

A tieback is a horizontal rod used to reinforce retaining walls for stability. With one end of the tieback secured to the wall, the other end is anchored into the earth with sufficient resistance.

By utilizing Magnacore SDA’s for Tiebacks, you can save time and money with quick, efficient, all-in-one installation. Magnacore has high production capabilities, with minimal vibration or displacement of soil during installation. You can determine instant load capacity and continuously monitor torque with Magnacore Tiebacks. Because of Magnacore’s unique design, they can be used as earth shoring in areas of limited access.

Soil Nails for Slope Stabilization

Soil Nails are steel reinforcing members that are installed in a uniform grid pattern and grouted to unify the soil into a cohesive mass

Magnacore Soil Nails require less underground easement than conventional tie-back anchors. By utilizing Magnacore for your soil nail wall, they can be installed directly underneath an existing structure to maximize space for adjoining construction. There are no height limits, with minimal vibration or displacement of soil during installation. A decorative Facing can be installed in front of Magnacore Soil Nail Walls.

Soldier Pile & Lagging

When excavations occur near existing structures and utilities, Soldier Pile & Lagging is often required, especially when deflection tolerances are stringent and when excavations are greater than 20 feet.

Soldier Pile and Lagging is an earth retention system consisting of steel piles driven or placed in drilled holes. After the soldier beams have been installed, the earth is excavated along one side of the beams to expose a cut face of earth and to partially expose the front faces of the beams. Then lagging is installed with either timber or sprayed shotcrete to hold back the soil.

Depending upon the geometry of the wall and soil conditions, Magnacore Tiebacks are installed to provide additional lateral resistance. Tie backs are most commonly required when excavations occur near existing structures and utilities especially when deflection tolerances are stringent and when excavations are deep.
