Formed in 1995, Anchor Systems (International) Ltd supplies the well proven and versatile range of Vulcan® mechanical ground anchor systems throughout the UK and Europe. They have been employed worldwide for a considerable variety of structural and ground work applications and now, due to demands from the power generating companies, new Back Stay Anchors have been developed and added to the Vulcan® range which are:

  • Quick and easy to install
  • Effective in all ground conditions
  • Efficient and reliable
  • Independently tested and trials by Sheffield Testing laboratories
  • Economical
  • Fit for purpose and conform with code of practice BS: EN 1537.2000

Comprehensive Service

Anchor Systems provides a comprehensive advice and technical support service. This includes specification assistance based on load requirements, safety aspects, soil conditions and the design life of the system

Back Stay anchors should always be proof tested on site, to confirm the holding capacity, prior to commencement of the works. Anchor testing should conform to code of practice BS8081 and all equipment gauges should be calibrated annually.

Performance of the system is entirely dependent on the substrate conditions but the anchor type can be changed on site if difficult conditions are encountered. No special tools are required to make this change as the anchors are simply shackled together.
