Soil Nail and Shotcrete

When permanent shoring is required to maintain soils and slope, Soil Nail and Shotcrete is an excellent choice with many advantages to counter sliding, bearing failures and stabilize sloughing soils. Soils Nails are drilled into the face creating a tension element. A plate and wire mesh form are tied into the nails along the face of the area. Shotcrete is then blown over the form creating a continuous solid structure to support the soils and resist soil pressure.
