Anchor Posts Installation


Apart from its flexible usage, the principle benefit of the anchor post system is its speed of installation into most displaceable ground conditions. Once a C.A.T scan has been conducted to detect any hidden utilities, the anchor is simply hammer driven straight into the ground. The alignment plate is then secured to the top at surface level and a post of the required height bolted to the plate. It is immediately ready for its desired application - fitting of signs, securing cables, fencing and the like.

This rapid economical procedure allows far more posts to be positioned in considerable less time. Also, unlike traditional post installation methods, anchor posts require no hole digging, no concrete or curing time and no return visits, particularly important on rail and motorway installations, making them significantly more cost-effective.
