Soil nails are a cost-effective method for long or short-term stabilisation of steep existing or proposed slopes. The stability of the slope is increased with the installation of steel or glass fibre threaded soil nails placed into pre-bored holes or simultaneous drilling and installation techniques. The end results, along with the correct drainage, significantly reduce the chances of a landslide or other ground movements. Soil nails are typically used to stabilise existing slopes or excavations where top-to-bottom construction is advantageous compared to other retaining wall systems. Soil nail walls are particularly well suited to excavation applications for ground conditions that require vertical or near-vertical cuts.
