Rock Anchors


Rock AnchorsA versatile solution to suit specific geological conditions when load carrying capacity is of the utmost consideration, natural rock anchors can be used to stabilise everything from tunnels to dams, embankments and cliff faces.

Working across the whole of the UK, we specialise in the construction and application of highly effective, reliable and durable rock anchors for use on any embankment, cliff face or dam. 

Whatever your requirements, we will have the solution to suit. Contact us for a no obligation quotation at your convenience. 

When spalling and rock falls are the problem

We typically use steel anchors bars and strands for our natural rock anchors projects, drilling holes directly into the face of the slope to be retained and deep into the soil and rock behind it. Grouting the annulus and installing the anchor, we then add a face plate, pulled tight to the surface by increased tension on the steel anchor.

Additional facing can be added as necessary and rock anchors are easily installed in multiple rows so the method can be easily adapted to cope with extremely high loads.

Rock anchors offer full versatility in use

Rock anchors are designed to assist in the retention of natural features and slopes and will often be used in major excavations, tunnelling and highway and rail cuttings. They can also be used to create tiebacks for bridges, to increase the stability of large dams or as an additional support for typical gravity retaining walls.

Natural anchors in useJust one part of a comprehensive ground stabilisation service

Quite often, natural rock anchors are just one part of an extensive range of retaining structures, ground stabilisation and piling works that building sites and construction areas will require. Able to be seamlessly integrated with our piling, underpinning, soil reinforcement or retaining walls services, we design, supply and engineer the simplest, most practical and most effective ground engineering solutions available.

Working across the UK, including Ashford, Kent, CanterburyMaidstone, Bromley, Birmingham, Surrey, Southampton, Wolverhampton, Sussex and London, our skilled team offer many years of experience in all aspects of ground engineering with numerous major projects on behalf of national developers and major civil engineering contractors behind us.

Following a detailed consultation and design process, we design and construct systems to provide simple, cost effective and practical solutions to every retaining and stabilisation challenge.
