Anchor testing is critical when installing ground anchors. At GSS we complete tests at installation and follow up, as well as monitoring when required.
The selection of the correct design, positioning and correct installation of ground anchors is critical to the overall effectiveness. Optimal anchor testing results can only be achieved by experienced and qualified technicians – the team a Ground Stabilisation Systems have extensive experience and a deep knowledge of the safety factors involved.
Equally critical to the success of ground anchors is detailed anchor testing following the initial installation and where necessary, monitoring and follow-up testing as required.
To ensure that a structure receives the highest level of support possible from a ground anchor, it’s important to make sure that the anchors themselves are in good working order.
Regular maintenance and testing programs should be established which are appropriate to the age of the structure and anchor type.
GSS has the equipment and qualified and experienced personnel equipped to carry out comprehensive testing of installed ground anchors, soil nails, to check for positioning, stability and strength and to ensure compliance with globally recognised ISO standards.
The many projects GSS has undertaken successfully on behalf of clients has often required us to install ground anchors and subsequently conduct anchor testing in some locations that can best be described as “extreme.” The experience, dedication, and skills acquired on these projects have equipped GSS to undertake the most challenging as well as the simplest ground anchor installation and testing projects.
Although ground anchors are typically associated with retaining walls, they are also often used to provide additional strength and support to a wide variety of structures such as flood and erosion walls, urban transit projects and bridge structures.
