Earth Anchoring Systems

Typical applications of earth anchors include guy anchors to support towers; tie-back anchors to support retaining walls or other soil retention structures; and mooring anchors to secure boats, buoys and other marine structures. There are various types of earth anchors and many different techniques for their installation which vary depending on the soil conditions and the capacities required.

Our Injection Bore (IBO®) anchoring system is ideally suited for rocky soils to solid bedrock which uses rotary percussion drilling equipment and a variety of disposable carbide drill bits capable of drilling through just about any type of rock or obstruction. For homogeneous soils containing no boulders such as soft to stiff clay and loose to dense sand, our helical anchoring systems provide the optimum load carrying performance by using a combination of helical plates to transmit the load to the soil.
