Earth Retention Systems

Earth retention systems are designed to resist lateral earth pressures with the purpose of retaining, supporting, reinforcing, and securing a mass of soils or other materials. DSH Foundation Solutions can help with the installation of both permanent and temporary earth retention systems for any project.

Permanent Shoring

When permanent shoring is needed, DSH Foundation Solutions is the experienced installer to get the job done. Our installers are certified in CHANCE® Helical Tieback Anchors, which are a consistent method of providing permanent lateral support for soils along deep cuts, slopes, and excavations.

Temporary Shoring

When temporary shoring is needed, DSH Foundation Solutions can provide an efficient, cost-effective solution through the use of CHANCE Helical Tieback Anchors. The installation of helical tieback anchors provides additional lateral support for soldier piling and lagging as well as driven steel sheet temporary retaining walls.

Slope Stabilization

CHANCE Soil Screws are used to provide anchoring resistance to sliding forces within slopes. DSH Foundation Solutions has the expertise to install the various systems quickly and in difficult access areas.

Bulkheads & Seawalls

CHANCE Helical Tieback Anchors are proven to be the most effective system available for providing lateral stability for seawalls and bulkheads. The Helical Anchors can be installed from land or water, and do not require the excavation of soils, or the use of grout or concrete.

CHANCE Helical Tieback Anchors – Retention Wall System

CHANCE helical tiebacks are a pre-engineered mechanical anchoring system for permanent and temporary earth retention. The success of the Helical Anchor tieback system is based on decades of similar use of CHANCE anchors in the electric utilities industry. Capacities up to 200,000 pounds per anchor are obtainable with this instant tieback system.

Helical tieback anchors are installed into retained soil with readily available equipment. Once the minimum length is obtained, the installation torque is measured and used to estimate load capacity. This quality control measure, results in very few failed load tests. Length and bearing area can be adjusted in the field to meet the specified load requirements for site specific conditions. The tiebacks are then tensioned immediately and tested without the need of grout cure time and grouting equipment. CHANCE helical tiebacks eliminate the cure times and additional equipment costs associated with grouted tendon methods, saving a tremendous amount of project time and cost.

Advantages of using CHANCE Helical Tieback Anchors for earth retention:

  • No cure time – immediate proof test and load
  • Installs with readily available equipment
  • No excavation or spoils
  • No de-watering
  • Reduced labor and equipment costs
  • Installs in any weather
  • Maximizes flexibility with changing soil conditions
