FIXE 316 Stainless 3/8 Sport Anchor
The FIXE Sport Anchor is designed specifically for single-pitch sport climbs and climbing gyms. The high strength, 30kn and easy use, makes a pair of these Top Anchors an outstanding choice. The Sport Anchor design allows for the horizontal placement in a roof application.
In December 2018, the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) published the review of the EN959 standard, where it places stainless steel in the second link of its table of materials.
In 316L stainless steel we find a widely proven material, easier to work with at process and machinery level and, above all, widely used in a multitude of market components. We remain cognizant that sometimes, and despite not being the best practice, our materials are mixed, and that’s why that we prefer to offer a known and compatible material to avoid for example galvanic corrosion. Fixe does not recommend its use in highly corrosive environments.
Fixe has been working on improving its anchor range with a highly corrosion resistant material (HCR) in order to increase safety in environments of all kinds, including marine and corrosive atmospheres, during a longer period of time. Our PLX material has been specifically developed to help withstand Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) and minimize Galvanic Corrosion (GC). The material also has improved characteristics compared to common corrosion, mechanical resistance and superficial wear and is far superior to conventional stainless steel products.
