Saving time and labour, patented DUCKBILL® earth anchors work like a toggle bolt in soil. They are driven into the ground with no holes, no digging, and minimal soil disturbance creating a safe and environmentally sensitive installation. With an upward pull, the anchor tendon rotates the DUCKBILL into a perpendicular “anchor lock” position in undisturbed soil resulting in superior holding capacities.
The DUCKBILL offers the most effective, lightweight, economical solution to any anchoring application, from large to small. Applications include tree support, theft deterrence, turf reinforcement, securing portable buildings, garden sheds, tie-downs and more.
DUCKBILLS are manufactured from aluminium alloys and in galvanized ductile iron for hard rocky soils.
Maximum Stability with Minimal Soil Disturbance
So, whether you are looking for DUCKBILL anchors for portable buildings, tie-downs, or cargo nets to secure your equipment during cyclone season, we have got you covered. The DUCKBILL offers the most effective, lightweight, economical solution to any anchoring application.
Once installed the anchor can be immediately load tested to ensure that it meets engineering requirements, no waiting for cement to cure.
We can provide a RTO for technical and onsite training to ensure that the anchors are installed and tested correctly. We can also provide you with our technical manual for the design, installation and on-site testing of the anchors which can be approved by onsite engineers or project managers to design specifications.
SAVE TIME, SAVE MONEY, SAVE ON LABOUR COSTS
On job completion and removal of the buildings, the anchor cables are cut just below ground level and will corrode away in the soil. No digging and minimal environmental impact.
