CSCC ANCHOR PLACEMENT PROGRAMME

ECO ANCHORS MAINTAINED BY THE CSCC

All anchors should be checked before use. See Anchor Inspection & Usage

Anchors that do not meet the tests should be reported to the Equipment Officer via email. Please see previous reports and the outcomes.

Anchors in the CSCC region that are not listed below have not been placed by the CSCC.

To be part of the scheme the placement of anchors must be approved by the CSCC. CSCC makes available past proposals that have been declined. Inclusion in this list does not exclude them as being proposed again in the future.

The placement of anchors is on going. For more information see the list of approved placements.


Anchor Scheme Forms

If you come across a defective anchor please use the Defective Anchor Form

If you have a location that you believe needs anchors please use the New Anchor Request Form

If you are a CSCC Nominated Installer please complete the Anchor Installation Sheet for any anchors you install.

NB First 2 bolts are set in the concrete entrance cover. The bolts are therefore not covered by the BCA scheme. However, on the advice of the BCA Equipment and Techniques Committee, the CSCC has proof tested them with a load of 10KN instead of the usual 6KN.

Entrance Rigging (NB The bolts in the concrete are for rigger protection, not the main hang)
