Helical wall tiebacks are designed to straighten or strengthen basement and retaining walls. This method of shoring has become very popular with the engineering community due to their strength and ease of measuring capacity. Helical tiebacks have many of the same benefits as other helical anchors in the fact that they install with lightweight, portable equipment, are not adversely affected by weather and can be load tested immediately upon installation.
Often ECP helical tiebacks are the preferred method of shoring by engineers due to their capacity to torque relationship and predictability of ultimate capacity. Helical tiebacks are used for many applications including:
