Ancor Loc Australia’s Manta Ray Anchor is a percussion-driven anchor, which can provide quick installation and load testing to ensure hold down capacity is achieved. They can provide emergency tie-down points for cyclone and flood regions on a permanent or temporary basis with very little environmental impact.

With container shelters becoming a popular on-site requirement as either sheltered workshops or storage facilities, Manta Ray anchors can provide you with a hold down solution which would be economically viable compared with other solutions in remote locations.

Can you afford for your shelter to be non-compliant, cyclone season is upon us!
