Ground anchor testing

Metris’ geotechnical testing activities are complemented by the offer of testing micropiles, nails and ground anchors. The range of services provided includes anchor compression, acceptance tests, suitability tests, as well as anchor breakage and demounting. The execution possibilities go beyond the standards and apart from the usual strand or bar anchors with a single head, we also perform tests of multi-head anchors.

The production of trench protection in the form of sheet and soldier piling or diaphragm walls more and more often requires the use of additional support in the form of ground anchors or supports. If ground anchors are used in accordance with standard requirements, it is necessary to carry out compression to control the behaviour under the load and to compress the tendon and anchor it at the level of the locking tension. In special cases, the anchors must also be ripped off or partially demounted.
