CASE STUDIES

Soil Nailing

Soil Nails are often used as a method for strengthening potentially unstable and over steep soil and heavily weathered rock slopes.

Usually of the hollow self-drilling variety, Vertical Technology will ensure the appropriate nail material is chosen to suit ground conditions. Galvanised steel, epoxy coated, stainless steel and GRP are used to provide the optimum balance of strength, life and budget. Soil nails are typically in range 3.0m to 12.0m in length.

Using specialist drilling equipment, Vertical Technology can install soil nails on the most difficult to access locations.

Soil nails are often combined with a rock netting and geotextile revetment to complete the soil protection and encourage the establishment of ground vegetation often enhanced by Hydroseeding.
