What Are Helical Tiebacks Used For?

Helical tiebacks are a popular and effective Grip-Tite foundation solution. They provide extra support for basement walls, retaining walls, temporary walls, seawalls, and more. Whenever walls bow or lean, helical tiebacks stabilize and support them.

How Do Helical Tiebacks Work?

This solution involves installing tiebacks in the soil surrounding the affected foundation wall to provide significant stability. One end of the tieback secures to the wall while the other end attaches to a more stable structure. This design pulls the wall back into place and stops any vertical or lateral movement. They require minimal machinery for installation, making them ideal for almost any application. Their strength can be tested immediately since they don’t require grout or cement.

When Do You Use Helical Tiebacks?

Helical tiebacks are often chosen for foundation support in situations where lateral stability is a concern. They are particularly useful in retaining wall repairs, where they provide additional support against lateral earth pressure. Helical tiebacks are ideal in tight or urban construction sites due to their ease of installation with minimal disturbance. Helical tiebacks are also effective in poor soil conditions where traditional anchoring methods might fall short. Their adjustable and immediate load-bearing capacity makes them a reliable choice for both temporary and permanent applications.

What Are the Benefits of Helical Tiebacks?

This process is a great solution for a wide variety of projects and offers the following advantages:
  • No excavation required
  • Can be installed in all types of weather
  • Can be load tested immediately following installation
  • Installs easily in areas with limited access or tight spaces
