Soil nail full threaded steel bar PSB930

Soil nailing uses grouted, tension-resisting steel elements (nails) to reinforce in situ soils and create a gravity retaining wall for permanent or temporary excavation support.

Product Description

Fully threaded rods and fully threaded studs are fasteners that have threads throughout their entire length for fully engaging nuts or other internally threaded components. Threaded rods, also known as fully threaded rods (ATR) or threaded full length rods (TFL), provide high grip and evenly distributed tension when installing and securing components. These fasteners are suitable for a variety of general-purpose applications including electrical, plumbing, maintenance and manufacturing.

Soil nail walls are generally constructed from the top down. Typically, the soil is excavated in three to six feet deep stages. After each excavation stage, near-horizontal holes are drilled into the exposed face at typically three to six-foot centers. Tension-resisting steel bars are inserted into the holes and grouted in place. A drainage system is installed on the exposed face, followed by the application of reinforced shotcrete wall facing. Precast face panels can also be used. Bearing plates are then fixed to the heads of the soil nails. This installation process is repeated until the design wall depth is reached. The finished soil nails then produce a zone of reinforced ground.
