What is the CHANCE Soil Screw?

When you need a product that provides great stability while being installed at a shallower depth than traditional helical tieback anchors, the CHANCE® soil screw® is a perfect fit. Our Richmond based technicians use the CHANCE® Soil Screw retention wall system to reinforce the earth and construct gravity walls and helps with slope stabilization of your Richmond foundation project. 

Our Installation teams in Richmond will rotate the soil screw into the ground until the required nail length is achieved. Each helical bearing plate is formed into a screw thread with a uniform defined pitch before the screw is attached to the wall face. Instead of relying on friction as a grouted anchor would, this “soil nail” application uses the bearing plates spaced along the entire length of the anchors, so they’re ready for immediate loading as soon as the soil screw is installed.
