Building Steadfast Foundations:

Micropiles and Tiedown Anchors

Looking to construct a stable and robust foundation for your next project? Micropiles and tiedown anchors might just be the solution you need. These deep foundation elements provide exceptional stability, durability, and load-bearing capacity, making them ideal for a wide range of construction and infrastructure projects. In this article, we'll discuss what micropiles and tiedown anchors are, how they work, and why you should choose Westcoast Drilling Inc. as your drilling contractor for these services.

What Are Micropiles and Tiedown Anchors?

Micropiles and tiedown anchors are types of deep foundation elements used to transfer loads from structures and infrastructures to the ground. They are constructed using small diameter steel casing and/or threaded bars, making them ideal for installation in confined spaces such as basements, tunnels, and areas with limited overhead clearance. The materials used in the construction of micropiles and tiedown anchors provide exceptional strength and stability, ensuring they can withstand high loads, even in challenging soil or rock conditions.

How Do Micropiles and Tiedown Anchors Work?

Micropiles and tiedown anchors work by transferring vertical and horizontal loads from a structure or infrastructure to the ground. They are inserted into predrilled holes that are then filled with grout to create a solid foundation. Micropiles work through a process called skin friction, where the micropile’s surface interacts with the surrounding soil to achieve load transfer. Tiedown anchors, on the other hand, are installed at an angle to resist soil pullout, creating a tensioned anchor that provides stability in structures such as retaining walls.
