About Hulk Earth Anchors

The introduction of HULK Earth Anchors ushers in a new era in percussion anchor technology. HULK is the result of the culmination of knowledge gathered over the last 35 years in the manufacture, design and installation of these systems. HULK is a technologically advanced range of products and its performance specifications surpass all of our previous products.

Designed, developed and manufactured in Australia for challenging southern hemisphere conditions HULK Earth Anchors are built extra tough to stringent Australian standards thereby guaranteeing safe products and consistent quality.

Advantages of Hulk Earth Anchors

What is a Hulk Anchor?

A HULK Earth Anchor is a geotechnical anchor designed for holding tensile loads. HULK Earth Anchors can also be referred to as ground anchors, mechanical anchors, or more specifically, percussion anchors, driven anchors, or tipping plate anchors.

HULK Earth Anchors are a revolutionary anchoring technology providing time and labour-saving installations of anchored solutions. Working like toggle bolts in soil, HULK Earth Anchors are driven to their required depth after which an upward pull on the anchor tendon rotates the anchor head in the ground into a perpendicular anchor locked position. When using a HULK Proof Tester for anchor locking, the earth anchor is simultaneously tested to the desired holding capacity, allowing for an anchor installation of known holding capacity which is ready for immediate use.

The Hulk Anchor Concept

Drive the HULK Earth Anchor:

Using readily available, conventional tools and equipment, drive the HULK Earth Anchor into the ground with a reusable Hulk Smasher Rod.

Remove the Smasher Rod:

Once the HULK Earth Anchor is driven to the required depth, remove the HULK Smasher Rod.

Proof Test:

Anchor Lock the HULK Earth Anchor while simultaneously proof testing to the required capacity.

No Digging or Excavation

HULK Earth Anchors are driven into the ground, not augered or torqued. No digging or excavation is required for installation, and no concrete or grout is required to set the anchor into position. As a result there is no disturbance, or displacement to the surrounding soil, providing a safe and environmentally friendly anchoring solution.

Hulk Earth Anchor Advantages

  • Instant point of anchoring
  • Fast, easy, and reliable installation
  • No digging or excavation
  • No soil disturbance
  • Superior holding capacity
  • Proof tested during installation
  • TDG (thermal diffusion galvanisation) corrosion resistant

Installation Methods

HULK Earth Anchors can be installed with a variety of light, medium and heavy installation equipment. Anchor size, installation depth and project specifics will determine the size of installation equipment required. All applicable power sources and plant are readily available from most plant hire companies.

Hulk Smasher Rods

We manufacture our HULK Smasher Rods from high quality impact resistant steels. They are available in a variety of combinations including Hand Smasher Rods, fixed length and extendable Power Smasher Rods, and have shank options for most types of powered installation equipment. HULK Smasher Rods are available in a variety of lengths from 0.9m up to 3m and various diameters.
