Ongoing development of faster, safer and more exotic tunnelling techniques places a constant pressure on manufacturers to provide more efficient rock support solutions which will help the shortening of cycle time. As ground conditions get more and more demanding, emphasis is placed on flexible and intelligent support systems in which rock and soil reinforcement is expected to contribute to the productivity and safety of the operation. The trend has been to provide rock support and reinforcement systems that are easy to install, assure efficiency and provide safety.
The Metis self drilling anchor system consists of a hollow threaded rod with a sacrificial drill bit.Thanks to the full length rod thread and extension couplings, the system offers a flexibility to easily adjust the rod length to the site requirements. This is especially useful if piling has to beperformed in a confined workspace, for example with limited head room which is often the case in underpinning.
