Rock bolting

Rock bolting ensures the stability of structures

It is a process that involves embedding bolts or anchors into the rock. Rock bolting ensures the stability of structures and prevents potential collapses or accidents, thereby extending the lifespan of the structure. It provides additional support to structures and prevents their movement or damage. 

Reinforcement bolting is a form of rock bolting used to reinforce a desired location. For instance, bolts can be used to support tunnel structures, making them more durable and safer. Reinforcement bolting is also used in open-cutting of transportation routes. Reinforcement bolting in open cuts ensures that the rock remains sturdy even as changes occur in the soil over the years.

Anchor bolting is another form of rock bolting used to ensure the construction of sturdy foundations. Regardless of what kind of structures are built on a rock foundation, anchor bolting is always required to ensure that the foundations are sturdy and durable. Anchor bolting is also used to support wind turbines. The bolts are installed in the surrounding rock of the wind turbine, ensuring the turbine stays securely upright in all weather conditions.
