Soil or Rock Anchors generally consist of steel elements (bars or strands) 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.
Total Foundation uses rock anchors to stabilize slopes and walls, provide tiebacks for bridges, stabilize dams, and secure caisson bottoms.
