How it Works
Microfine cement grout is injected into the ground under pressure. Permeation occurs and depending on the techniques used various forms are constructed underground. The structures formed are typicall gravity retaining walls, curtain walls, small and large diameter pile columns all designed to support or retain structures and the surrounding ground. Fondex only uses the highest quality Microfine 900 Series grouts from the best manufactures in the world to maximise permeation. Curing typically occurs over a 5-7 day period. Thereafter excavation can occur if required. The “caveat” to this is: Fondex should always be advised of any excavation works prior to doing so as it may be a contractual requirement for our Operations Manager to inspect the site prior to, or during any excavation works to ensure safety and that the size, strength and thickness of the underground grout structure is in accordance with the intended engineering design.
