Soil Nailing | Slope Stabilization



Please contact us regarding questions on soil nailing | slope stabilization.

Soil nailing is a remedial construction technique applied to the stabilization of unstable soil slopes and retaining walls.

It is a construction method that allows the safe over-steepening of new or existing soil slopes.  Soil nail walls provide a resisting force against slope failures. The process uses grouted, tension-resisting steel elements (nails). Installing passive reinforcement in existing ground is done by installing closely spaced grouted steel bars or sections (nails) and placing a front face support. There is usually a layer of shotcrete applied as a facing material protecting the exposed nail. Afterwards other architectural options can be placed over the shot-Crete, giving an aesthetic finish to the project.

The finished soil nails produce a zone of reinforced ground. Soil nail walls are generally constructed from the top down.

Why Choose Soil Nailing?

Soil Nailing offers a viable alternative from the viewpoint of:

  • technical feasibility and easy access to the work area
  • construction costs
  • construction duration
  • less disturbing to neighboring properties

Soil nailing is typically used to stabilize existing slopes or excavations where top-to-bottom construction is advantageous compared to other retaining wall systems.
