Soldier piles and lagging walls are a popular solution due to their relative simplicity and cost-effectiveness. Read on to learn more about how they function, how they can be used for your project and why Foundation Repair Services is the expert you should call to do the work.
About Soldier Piles & Lagging Walls
Soldier piles and lagging walls are commonly used for temporary means of holding back soil while problems with foundation walls are fixed or foundation walls are built. In addition, for a permanent retaining wall precast concrete or steel panels may be used. Tie back anchors and bracing may also be used to provide additional support depending on the project.
How Do They Work?
Steel soldier beams are driven into the earth at regular intervals, generally between 6 feet and 12 feet apart. Once this step is completed, lagging is secured between them. This may be constructed of wooden slats, concrete panels or steel barriers depending on the temporary or permanent nature of the project.
The presence of lagging helps hold dirt and aggregate in place and transfers the load to the piles while excavation and other work is completed. Soldier pile shoring is a critical component of many projects related to foundation repairs or new construction because it allows crews to work without worrying about the effects of ground pressure.
