WHY CHOOSE EAS?

 WHAT’S THE REASON FOR THE EAS PRODUCT

The easiest way to explain some of the reasons for designing  &  manufacturing the product is explained in the items below:

Retaining Wall System

NO ENCROACHMENT REQUIRED

In  all  my  years  in  Civil  engineering,  I  had  not  found  a  retaining  wall  system  using upright posts-on the market-that did not require a concrete encasement around the base  of  the  posts.  If  the  retaining  wall  was  erected  on  the  property  boundary,  the concrete   foundation,   often   protruded   into   the   neighbouring   property.   Although buried, this foundation restricted the use of the neighbouring ground that the concrete intrude on.

The  EAS  Retaining  wall  post,  requires  no  such  encroachment  on  to  neighbouring properties,  neither  does  any  Boring/Auguring  of  Post  Holes  need  to  be  done,  thus avoiding the necessity of borrowing/hiring or using an Auger drill, excavator or hand digging  a  multitude  of  relevant  depth  holes.  Together  with  the  non  digging  of  post holes  (usually  between  300  &  450mm  diameter),  of  varying  depths,  and  the  lack  of the need for concrete around these posts, whether steel or timber type.

NO HOLES TO BORE

Simple physics dictate that an item(post) placed in most ordinary  ground conditions, and even with a slightly increased bearing area (meaning post concrete encasement), will  eventually  succumb  to  pressures  from  above.  In  most  timber  post  and  sleeper situations,  the  ground  above,  creates  enormous  pressure  on  the  buried  (concrete encased),  portion  of  the  post.  Over  time  this  often  cause    the  retaining  wall  to  bend and move, and as we are aware that an enormously difficult and usually very costlyrestoration is required.

The EAS Retaining Wall post, does not  need  any holes bored for installation, as the post  is  driven  into  the  ground.  The  design  of  the  post  offers  vertical  and  lateral strength, and that addition of the EAS Anchor and its accessories, allows the upright post to be secured from the top, and the excessive ground pressure is transferred to the Anchor  which  is secured  in  solid  ground.  EAS  Post  Installations  are designed that, if you are unfortunate  enough  to  have  some  movement  in  your  wall,  the  EAS top stay wires are adjustable, and can be adjusted without having to remove the wall, and should not need replacement.
