Soil nailing and shotcrete works
Securing every cut.
The use of shotcrete and nails for the temporary or permanent securing of construction pits and embankments in loose rock or bedrock conditions is a long-established construction method. Stump-Franki has significantly influenced this development over the years, and the company has national technical approvals for these methods.
When working with loose rock, we arrange the nails to create a monolithic body that can safely absorb any earth pressure that may arise. In solid rock, nails function as dowels that prevent wedges of rock face from slipping or tipping. The outer surface can then be sealed with jetcrete, the thickness of which is determined on the basis of the expected earth pressure. Using modern calculation methods, we are able to calculate the optimum arrangement and dimensions of the securing elements to be used.
