We can also supply you with any installation methodology that you may require. These are system and application specific.
A site test includes the onsite installation of a mechanical anchor to a determined depth. The installation is normally conducted by the main contractors staff and supervised by an Anchor Systems operative. Once the system is installed the anchor is then tested in line with our report process to identify the ultimate holding capacity of ground (soil mechanics failure).
The test is also conducted to ensure the anchors can be installed either by hand or by machine and to prove the loading requirements that are achievable including any Factor of Safety that has been specified.
