Anchoring System

The Duckbill system is a simple, reliable and cost-effective ground anchoring solution..
The concept involves a specially designed anchor, linked to high yield tie bars or tendons to suit a variety of conditions, being driven into the ground where it is locked in position. The tensile load is applied and the top end terminated..
With their ease of use and speed of installation, Duckbills provide a time and cost saving alternative to more traditional means of anchoring, particularly where tight programme schedules are involved..
Duckbills provide immediate loading capacities from 1 - 300kN in most displaceable ground conditions, and have extensive applications. Used with our Combi-Tec system, anchors can be installed to provide a totally concealed top termination..
A wide range of other mechanical and grouted anchor systems, with loading capacities up to 2,000kN can also be supplied.
