Time is of the essence when it comes to the Railways work, it is mainly done on night shifts or a possession, the section above firstly the vegetation had to be cut back then work could commence meshing and inserting bolts, this type of operation it is imperative that all materials are on site when required

Solution

To secure the slope, Minova R38/500 Self Drilling Anchor were installed in 6 meter lengths, using 90 mm holes inclined at 20 degrees and Am1001 thixotropic high strength grout.

The R38/500 SDA’s were chosen as they would meet the requirements of high tensile strength at the same time as the large cross sectional area ensures long life in spite of  sacrificial corrosion.

Following the installation of SDA’s, an Erosamat Erosion control netting and double twist mesh was applied to prevent further erosion and also to promote revegetation.

Result

The provision of self-drill anchors, and associated accessories by Minova proved ideal solution for this application;

  • The anchors can be installed using really light drill equipment thus avoiding extensive temporary works.
  • Minova provide a “one-stop-shop” in terms of necessary materials and associated services, thus saving the contractor time and effort, and ensuring all necessary materials are supplied in a single set of delivers. 
  • Minova’s also offer an anchor testing service saves the contractor having to have the necessary equipment and expertise in house, and gives the owner an extra level of certainty as the anchors are in effect tested by a “third party”.
  • Minova can advise on the most appropriate drill bit for the ground conditions, and we hold large stocks of various types of drill bits. Having the correct drill bit for the application is key to achieving high productivity on site. Should ground conditions vary across the site, Minova can quickly supply alternative drill bits to accommodate for the variations.
