DESIGN & PERFORMANCE
The concept involves a specially designed anchor with a large surface area that is linked to a high yield tie bar or tendon. The anchor can then can be driven into the ground to the required depth, have a tensile load applied to the tendon which then, in turn, rotates the anchor, allowing the exposed end to be terminated and locked into position with any one of our large range of accessories and plates depending on the application and your requirements.
The Vulcan Earth Anchors can easily and rapidly be installed with either hand held equipment or machine, depending on the anchor size and ground conditions. The installation can be carried out with little or no disruption to the structure or surrounding soil or ground you are retaining, stabilising or tethering.
