helical tie-back anchors

Based on the capacity that is designed by one of our in-house engineers, the wall tie-back anchors are then rotated into the ground to a precise torque and depth. To achieve lateral stability, we use this system to support walls. As you can see in the picture above, one end is applied to the wall, and then the tie back is twisted at an angle into the ground to enforce the wall of a structure that is in danger from things like wind, earth’s pressure, or an earthquake.

  • Manufactured from high strength carbon steel tubing

Carbon fiber straps combine the technologies of high strength carbon and Kevlar in a woven mesh to provide tensile reinforcement to existing walls. The Fortress Support is a carbon-fiber system that is a Kevlar grid strap designed to sustain walls that have fractured or bowed due to water damage or other causes.

This system revolutionizes concrete crack repair by combining carbon fiber stitching embedded in a hardened epoxy with a structural polyurethane grout injection. The dual surface seal carbon fiber stitching prevents cracking fatigue and distributes load to solid concrete. This revolutionary system arrests any further movement and is much more affordable compared to outdated techniques that involve excavation, steel I-beams, or cumbersome unsightly supports.

Soil moving and erosion can create complex problems for the structural integrity of your home. The purpose of retaining walls is to hold soil back to protect structures against the harmful effects of sliding soil and erosion. If you have discovered that your retaining wall is failing, Ram Jack West’s helical piles are the perfect solution to achieve maximum stability.

Our solutions offer stability for retaining walls with these problems

  • Cracks
  • Soil pressure
  • Bowing of the wall
  • Horizontal movement

If your property is waterside, then the integrity of your seawall is crucial for the overall health of your home. The purpose of a seawall is to protect your property from erosion by rivers or streams, ponds, lakes, or the ocean.

Ignoring seawall problems can have dangerous ramifications to the structural integrity of your seawall and can even result in complete failure. Some might suggest replacing the seawall entirely but this method is time-consuming, expensive, and often requires the removal of structures near the seawall. Ineffective methods such as hydraulic cement, slurry, sodium silicate, and crushed seashells can be quick fixes but fail to be a permanent solution.

Ram Jack West is a proud member of the Seawall Repair Network, using advanced technologies to completely restore the structural integrity of your seawall, the first time. Watch the video below to get a complete understanding of the process.
