The Advantages of Helical Tieback Anchors for General Contractors
As a general contractor, you understand the importance of reliable and cost-effective solutions for stabilizing structures subjected to lateral loads. In this blog post, we’ll explore the world of tieback anchors, with a particular focus on helical tieback anchors. These innovative anchoring systems offer numerous advantages, such as quick installation, reusable components, and predictable capacity. Helical tieback anchors are valuable for your earth retention projects, whether you’re working on bulkheads, seawalls, or temporary foundation shoring.
1. The Power of Helical Tieback Anchors:
Helical tieback anchors are designed to reinforce and stabilize permanent and temporary structures affected by lateral loads from earth and water. Helical anchors provide additional lateral resistance when used in conjunction with earth retaining systems like sheet piles and soldier piles, surpassing what can be achieved with a cantilevered wall alone. These anchors have a proven track record in the electric utilities industry, with capacities reaching up to 200,000 lbs. per anchor.
2. The Advantages of Helical Tieback Anchors:
- Reusability and Labor Savings:
One of the most significant advantages of helical tieback anchors is their reusability. This feature not only saves costs but also reduces labor. Installation is quick and straightforward without the need for grout or concrete, eliminating the waiting time for curing or de-watering a site with high water content.
- Predictable Capacity:
Helical tieback anchors provide a reliable capacity proportional to the installation torque. Contractors can determine the anchor’s holding capacity by measuring the torque during installation and correlating it to the soil strength. This immediate proof testing and tension loading save considerable time and cost.
- Versatility and Accessibility:
Helical tieback anchors can be installed using commonly available hydraulic rotary drilling equipment, maximizing flexibility for contractors. They can also be installed in any weather condition, providing adaptability to project schedules. Additionally, these anchors are ideal for limited access areas, ensuring every project site is manageable for installation.
3. HeliCAP™: A Valuable Resource:
For contractors working on design projects that involve helical piles and anchors, HeliCAP™ offers a free civil engineering software platform. This powerful tool assists in calculating capacity requirements for CHANCE® helical products. By considering soil parameters, environmental variables, and other essential criteria, contractors can accurately select the appropriate pile or anchor size for their project requirements. HeliCAP™ empowers contractors with the knowledge needed to make informed decisions and optimize the performance of helical tieback anchors.
Helical tieback anchors are a game-changer for general contractors involved in earth retention applications. With their reusable components, quick installation, and predictable capacity, these anchors provide a cost-effective and reliable solution for stabilizing structures subjected to lateral loads. By incorporating helical tieback anchors into your projects, you can maximize efficiency, reduce labor costs, and ensure the long-term stability of your structures. Embrace the advantages of helical tieback anchors and take your earth retention projects to new heights.
