MECHANICAL ANCHORS

Ground are certified by Ancor Loc Nz to install Foresight mechanical anchor products. Ground frequently install Duckbill,Manta Ray and String Ray earth anchor systems for a wide range of applications. 

MECHANICAL ANCHOR ADVANTAGES

One of the main advantages of mechanical anchor systems is the immediate proof test results, Manta Ray & Sting Ray anchors can be installed into an active slip to remove or minimise the risk of complete failure well permanent remedial works are undertaken. 

Other advantages:

  • Upto 120 year life 
  • Environmentally friendly 
  • No excavation required 

DUCKBILL EARTH ANCHORS 

Duckbill anchors come in a range of sizes for a variety of applications, with recommended working loads of up to 22KN for the DB-138

Common applications   

  • Scaffolding 
  • Vineyards 
  • Turf Reinforcement 
  • Fences

Duckbill Turf Matting anchors coupled with Geofabric MacMat R create a perfect system for erosion protection while adding stability to the slope. Erosion protection is achieved using MacMat Rs unique composite material with slope support being transferred through the double twist hexagonal woven mesh to the Duckbill anchor. See a Ground case study here

MANTA RAY EARTH ANCHORS 

Manta Ray anchors come in a range of sizes for a variety of application, with ultimate loads of up to 178KN.

Common application:

  • Retaining Walls 
  • Sheet Piles 
  • Gabions 
  • Temporary Stabilisation Works 

STRING RAY EARTH ANCHOR 

String Ray anchors are the largest available mechanical anchors with ultimate loads of up to 500KN.

Common applications:

  • Foundations 
  • Retaining Walls 
  • Transmission Towers 
  • Excavation Shoring
