Title: RETAINING SYSTEM WITH ARTICULATED CONNECTING ELEMENT
Abstract:
The invention relates to a connecting element (9, 10) for connecting two retaining walls (2, 3; 4, 5) arranged behind each other in the longitudinal direction of trenches, comprising two connecting parts (14, 15) for detachably connecting to respectively one of the two retaining walls and an intermediate articulation (16) connecting together in an articulated manner the two connecting parts (14, 15) for compensating an angular offset between the two retaining walls (2, 3: 4, 5). The intermediate articulation (16) has at least two degrees of freedom for compensating a first and a second offset angle (α, β). Additionally or alternatively, at least one of the two connecting parts (14, 15) has a clamping section (22, 23) which extends in the longitudinal direction. The invention also relates to a retaining wall (2, 3; 4, 5) for retaining trenches, comprising at least one clamping mechanism (11, 12), by means of which the connecting element (9, 10) can be connected in the clamping section (22, 23), in the longitudinal direction of the retaining wall (2, 3; 4, 5), in different axial positions. The invention further relates to a retaining system comprising said type of retaining wall and to said type of connecting element.
