COMPARISON OF ANCOR LOC’S EPOXY-LOC® COATING AND PRE GROUTED SHEATHING
Concern Pre Grouted Sleeved Anchors Ancor Loc’s Epoxy-Loc Bar
Handling Pre-grouted bars will sag if longer than 6m and thus grout inside (which can’t be seen) will crack thus durability issue as there may be a lack of confidence in the grout. No issue.
Handling Limiting to 6m long introduces a coupler for longer nails. Other projects have heat shrunk and Denso wrapped. A confidence in durability issue. No issue.
Delivery Purpose made racks would need to be fabricated to confine the composite nail during manufacture and delivery. Epoxy-Loc bars can be delivered in wooden crates with each bar separated to prevent damage.
Offsite Inspection Sleeves are required to be grouted “in the factory”. There is little opportunity to see if the nail has been damaged by bad handling as the working components are not visible. All components visible. Damaged bars can be identified on site and rejected or repaired. Full comfort factor.
Manual Handling Heavy, difficult to place. Light, easier to place.
Durability As the variables affecting installation are greater with sheaths (see above) we believe that this is potentially the less durable option. Proven and approved at Manapouri for 100 years. University substantiated testing in highly corrosive conditions.
Installation It is difficult to monitor what effects of poor installation may be as 50% of the component is already sheathed. Full visibility.
Reparing Damaged sheaths cannot be repaired. Manufacturers approved 2 pack epoxy repair system.

Manta Ray Earth Anchor Systems and Sting Ray Earth Anchor Systems

Unlike other mechanical anchors, the anchor only disturbs a small amount of soil as it is driven to depth, this is very important, because the soil the anchor is installed through is the soil the anchor is reacting against. Top Hammer or down-the-hole hammer rock drills are very effective for installation of Manta Ray and Stingray anchors. Boom mounted demolition breakers or compactions are very effective for driving MANTA RAY and STING RAY.

Williams Geo-Drill Injection Anchor System for fast and efficient soil anchoring

The system has historically been known as a “self-drilling anchoring” because the hollow fully-threaded bar serves as both the drill string and the grouted anchor, thus installation is performed in a single operation. Ancor loc proudly promote the Williams Geo-Drill Injection Anchor System, Williams Geo-Drill Injection Anchor System is today’s solution for a fast and efficient anchoring system into virtually any type of soil.

Grouted Bar Anchors, tie-back/tie-down anchors

Tie-down and other pre-stressed ground anchors work on the same philosophy as the tieback anchors with a load transfer to a structure. The anchor transfers the load applied to the bond length uninhibited through the failure zone by using a bond-breaker. Key elements to all these types of anchors include.

Anchorloc’s Soil Nails, in-situ reinforcement system, stabilization of excavations, slopes and walls

Ancor Loc’s soil nail components create an in-situ reinforcement system for the stabilization of excavations and slopes during top-down construction. After the drill hole grout is cured, the soil nails may be torque tensioned against the protective shotcrete face to a slight load if desired. Pull out capacity is a function of drill hole diameter, depth, over burden stress and the angle of internal friction of the in-situ soil.

Dam tie-downs, excavation support, landslide mitigation, tieback systems, surface stabilization, foundations

All Ancor Loc’s strand anchors utilize a small diameter greased filled high density polyethylene sheathing, allowing for a greater number of individual strands to be contained in a given drill hole size. The number of strands per anchor dictates the load carrying capacity of the anchor. Advantages of Ancor Loc Grout Bonded Strand Anchors. High capacity – Anchors utilize a 15.2mm dia. 261 kN (ultimate stress) strand.
