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. The CHANCE® Soil Screw retention wall system reinforces the earth to construct gravity walls and help with slope stabilization.
Installation teams rotate or “screw” the shaft 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.
