Quick and easy to install using simple tools and equipment.
Light, high capacity anchoring system available in a range of anchor head materials and sizes to suit all applications.
Rigid anchor rods and flexible tendons with a variety of load attachment fittings available to suit any application.
Tailored designs to meet unique applications especially in tight locations with limited working area.
High quality technical support available.
All TEI Earth Anchors conform to relevant local and international standards.
TEI Earth Anchors Installation
The anchor is driven into the ground using a range of equipment. The hardness of the soil, and the depth the anchor is to be driven, governs the size of the equipment required to deliver the necessary energy. A full range of driving equipment is available through your local Kite and Skyhook installer.
Once the anchor is driven to depth, the drive steel is withdrawn. For small anchors , driven to shallow depths, this is a simple operation. For large anchors, driven to greater depths, the withdrawal of the rods will require mechanical assistance. The most important operation in the installation of an anchor is “Load Locking”. This is the rotation of the anchor 90 degrees to the line of drive, and locking it in this position. Doing so creates the “Frustum” cone which determines the final load which can be applied. After “Load Locking”, there is a range of options available for “Top Termination” and the installer can choose the one best suited to the application. The range of top terminations is infinite. TEI Earth Anchors are fast and efficient to install and they are environmentally friendly.
