Vulcan Earth Anchors the Anchor Post and the Anchor Screw have all been used extensively throughout the UK rail networks and have proved to be reliable and rapidly installed systems.
The Anchor Post was originally designed for use on the London Underground network as an alternative to concrete as a foundation, to support the cables that ran along the trackside of the overground sections of network. Since then, the Anchor Post has been developed further to make it usable for a variety of applications to support light weight structures such as signals, lights, CCTV and track side tool boxes.
The Vulcan Earth Anchor is the ideal solution in retaining slopes and geotextile meshing along the banks of railway lines to help with erosion control and landslip prevention. They are lighter and more easily manoeuvrable than traditional soil nails and can be installed quickly making them extremely cost effective. The Vulcan earth anchors can also be used to support bridges and retaining walls when these structures have starting to fail.
The Anchor Screw has been around for a little while but we have developed it over the past few years and it has been become increasingly popular due to the removal of any HAVS as the installation equipment is non-percussive and the fact that it is a quieter system to install at less than 90db. It is currently being used with our Rapid Route System to install cable toughing along Network Rail.
