Ground Anchor Testing

The selection of the correct design, positioning and correct installation of ground anchors are critical to the overall effectiveness of stabilising soil.

Soil anchor testing is critical to ensure the proper installation of ground anchors, rock bolts and soil nails.

Optimal anchor testing results can only be achieved by experienced and qualified technicians. The team from Ground Stabilisation Systems has extensive experience and a deep understanding of the safety factors involved.

Equally critical to the success of ground anchors, rock bolts and soil nails is detailed anchor testing following the initial installation and where necessary, monitoring and follow-up testing as required.

We carry out extensive testing procedures as per our client’s requirements to ensure the proper installation of soil nails, bolts and anchors.

Our qualified technicians can conduct soil anchor testing to suit a wide range of projects.

To ensure that a structure receives the highest level of support possible from a ground anchor, it’s important to make sure that the anchors themselves are in good working order.

Regular maintenance and testing programs should be established which are appropriate to the age of the structure and anchor type.


Ground Stabilisation Systems has the equipment and qualified personnel to carry out comprehensive soil anchor testing.

This testing includes checking pre-installed ground anchors and soil nails for correct positioning, stability, and strength, and ensuring the installation complies with globally recognised ISO standards.

The many projects we have undertaken on behalf of clients has often required us to install ground anchors and subsequently conduct anchor testing in some locations that can best be described as “extreme.”

An example of this includes our work at Woolgoolga, where a local road adjacent to a stream had become unstable and unsafe for use. We used specialised techniques including ground anchors and soil nails to readjust the road, then constructed a retaining wall on the low side of the road to ensure stability.

The experience, dedication, and skills acquired on projects like this have equipped GSS to undertake the most challenging and, at times, the simplest ground anchor installation and testing projects.

We are dedicated to getting the job done on budget and on time, ensuring outdoor areas are safe for local citizens and on-site workers.

Although ground anchors are typically associated with retaining walls/structures, they are also often used to provide additional strength and support to a wide variety of structures such as flood and erosion walls, urban transit projects and bridge structures.
