Sinorock provides a range of rock anchors and soil nailing solutions for the construction industry.Rock anchors are generally post-tensioned tendons installed and secured into the underlying rock.The anchoring force is transmitted to the surrounding rock by either cement grout, resin or mechanical means. Rock anchors can be installed in drill holes with any inclination.Sinorock is experienced in both small and large scale rock anchor installations for both private and commercial sector projects.
Rock anchors are used primarily in the following situations:
Full anchoring of retaining walls
For the stabilisation of eccentrically loaded foundations
In the stabilisation of slopes and rock walls or cuts
For systematic rock stabilisation and local support for underground excavations
For the stabilisation for uplift purposes as, for example, in structures in ground water
Rock bolting projects completed by Sinorock include:
Rock bolting a deep excavation, Newquay, Cornwall
Rock bolting the face of a deep excavation in Truro, Cornwall
Rock anchoring and soil nailing
Soil nailing is used in soil or loose rock. Soil nails transfer forces into the ground by means of a steel tendon or bar. The stressing end of the nail may use a nut or a plate, or wedges and a wedge plate depending on the type of tendon used.
Soil nailing or anchors are used in the following situations:
The anchoring of support structures for excavations such as sheet piling or trench boxes
The stabilisation of slopes
The transfer of external tensile forces to the ground, such as in the use of guy wires for towers
In the stabilisation of very eccentrically loaded foundations
Projects completed by Sinorock include:
Guy wire anchors for a BBC mast at Longdowns, Cornwall
Rock bolting, shotcreting and meshing at residential property, Falmouth, Cornwall
Rock bolting and meshing for residential property, Feock, Cornwall
