Ground Anchorage System
Tendon Systems offers 0.6 inch Strand Anchors for prestressed soil and rock anchors. Tendon System Ground Anchors have been designed for permanent and temporary strand anchor applications in corrosive and non-corrosive environments.
Tendon Systems Strand Anchors utilize a seamless jacket of high density polyethylene or polypropylene to encapsulate the prestressing steel and corrosion inhibitor. The plastic sheathing is watertight, chemically stable and highly resistant to environmental stress cracking. Anchors are fabricated with wave spacers to provide complete separation of all strands.
Centralizers are included to ensure that the entire surface of each strand is bonded to the cement grout in the bond zone.
Tendon Systems Ground Anchors meet all ADSC and PTI Class I and II durability protection criteria and strength requirements, and are shop fabricated, coiled, palletized and delivered to the jobsite ready for installation.
Temporary anchors are used primarily as tiebacks for excavated retaining walls. Permanent ground anchor applications include slope stabilization for embankments, tiedowns and high retaining walls for roadway or commercial structures.
Double Corrosion Protection Anchors (DCP Anchors) are shop grouted for the bond zone portion upon Client request in order to facilitate rapid field installation. Specialized variable load anchorages and load cells are custom designed for each specific use.
