Soil Nailing Explained

The aim of soil nailing is to improve the stability of in-situ mass using large metal bars. Soil nails are usually steel bars, grouted into pre-drilled holes in the slope. However, Condor Projects also have extensive experience with stainless steel and GRP to achieve a design life of 120 years.

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 existing slope, are quick to install, and cheaper than external structural solutions such as retaining walls.

Soil nails are normally installed alongside a slope surface, such as netting, hydraseeding, seeded geotextiles or shotcreting. Once installed and grouted, around 10% of the nails are usually tested to ensure they meet their design load following regulatory procedures.
