Excavation shoring is typically required to retain overburden soils adjacent to deep excavations to either facilitate new construction or other earth retention applications and to provide a safe work environment for construction crews. There are many forms of excavation shoring including steel sheet pile walls, concrete retaining walls, soldier pile and lagging walls, all of which may or may not need tie-back anchors for lateral support depending on their geometry, applied loads and the soil conditions.
Excavation Shoring Systems
Soldier Pile and Lagging
A soldier pile and lagging wall is a very traditional type of excavation shoring consisting of a series of steel
Tie Back Anchors
Soil retention systems that require lateral support are normally tied back using either the Injection Bore (IBO®) Anchoring System or
