Expanding Guy / Tension Anchors

 

Expanding (Bust) Guy / Tension Anchors

 
 

 

 

 
 

 

 

Features:

  • Expanding (bust) anchors are made for installation in holes augered by power drillers.  It is a one piece formed anchor with wings and a base.  A retainer on the bottom holds the nut from the forged eye rod.  The anchors are coated with a rust inhibitor.
  • The hot dip galvanized rods feature an integral forged eye in various diameters, lengths and number of guys that can be attached.

Application:

  • A hole the size listed in the table for the anchor is augered in line with the guy to a depth based on the rod length.  Typically the anchor is installed so the eye is approximately 18" above grade.
  • The rod is secured to the anchor and lowered into the hole.
  • An expanding-and-tamping tool is used to strike the top of the anchor and open the blades into undisturbed soil.  The hole is filled and tamped.
