Anchors reallocate loads caused by tension using high-strength steel bars or steel strand tendons. HJ Foundation designs and assembles anchors as an independent technique, part of earth retention, and/or part of a tiedown turn key solution.
- Tiebacks to support retaining walls laterally
- Tiedowns to withstand uplift forces
A full-length hole is drilled through the soil and into the bond zone using casing when necessary. A thread bar or strand tendon is inserted into the hole which is filled with high-strength grout. Casing (if utilized) is extracted. A bond breaker covers the length of bar or strand above the bond zone to remove the load transfer. The anchor head is then usually tensioned and joined with the structure in need of the support.
