In many cases, engineered slopes require stabilization to ensure their long-term viability and reduce localized slope failure (which includes erosion and rockfall). Generally speaking, the most effective strategy is to prevent the failure at the source through stabilization, not to install structures to protect against them in the future. There are many methods that can be used to stabilize a rock slope. One of them is to use Sinorock rock anchors.
Sinorock Rock anchors are often used for excavation support, or as a part of permanent retaining walls, or to resist up-lift forces on foundations. Sinorock uses rock anchors to stabilize slopes and walls, provide tiebacks for bridges, stabilize dams, and secure caisson bottoms. Rock anchors are considered a type of active reinforcement due to the post-tensioning they provide, and are used to add compressive stress to joints within a rock mass. This force increases the friction along the fracture planes and helps to reduce block movement.
