Rock anchoring

Rock anchoring

Rock anchors or rock bolts are used for making unstable rocky slopes, rock walls and retaining walls safe. Geologic Boreholes provides a complete rock anchoring service, comprising rock anchor design, installation and test.

The rock anchors we install are generally post-tensioned steel bars or strands installed in pre-drilled holes (of any inclination) and secured into the underlying rock beneath using cement, resin or other mechanical techniques.

For both commercial and residential projects, the rock anchoring process adds both lateral and vertical resistance forces to any existing rock or stone retaining structure, thereby eliminating movement and the chance of wall failure.

To find out more about rock anchoring or rock bolting, contact Geologic Boreholes, we’d be glad to talk to you.
