What is Soil Nailing?

Soil nails provide cost-effective short and long-term ground stabilisation for roadway cut excavations, slope stabilisation or retaining wall support. Condor Projects can manage all elements of soil nailing projects, including design, supply, installation and testing. The process stabilises and adds reinforcement to steep slopes and embankments. They provide an alternative to rock anchors used for stabilising rock slopes. Soil nails ensure security and safety from becoming misshapen or even collapsing, requiring emergency stabilisation.

How Soil Nailing Works

The aim is to improve the stability of in-situ mass using large metal bars. The soil nails are usually steel bars grouted into pre-drilled holes in the slope.

Soil nails bind the existing slope together. When closely spaced, the soil nails form a block, which acts as a retaining structure. Soil nails cause minimal disturbance to the current pitch, are quick to install and are cheaper than external structural solutions such as retaining walls. Once installed and grouted, 10% of the nails test to ensure they meet their design load following regulatory procedures.

Where we can work

With our vast range of custom and specialist built tools, machines and drill rigs, we can carry out soil nailing in almost any location. For future erosion control and surface protection, soil nails are installed alongside a sloped surface. Protection can include netting, hydroseeding, seeded geotextiles or shotcreting.
No matter how difficult the conditions are, such as by motorways or busy, highly populated areas, we can safely and efficiently carry out our work.

Why choose Condor for your soil nailing project

Working with an expert soil nailing company and professional geotechnical drilling company, you’ll benefit from;

  • Quick installation – other methods such as ground anchors take much more time to build and install, although necessary for specific jobs. Nails can be rapidly installed and are therefore perfect for emergencies.
  • Ability to work under challenging conditions – as we have a wide range of bespoke and specialised machinery, we can work in confined spaces or locations within which other contractors are not equipped.
  • Complete turnkey service – we manage all project elements, including design, supply, installation, and testing.
  • Condor Projects have extensive experience with stainless steel and GRP to achieve a design life of 120 years.
