The FIXE Chain Anchor was developed at the request of many customers. The unit is designed to be used in pairs or with another Top Anchor unit. When used with a Ring or Double Ring Anchor, an excellent Top Anchor is created. It is possible to extend the anchor point over obstructions using this anchor. A Plated Steel pair of Chain Anchors makes an affordable system that will last. In climbing gyms, these work exceptionally well as Top Anchors. (This unit is also available without the bottom ring. A screw link can be used to create custom anchors.)
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. The 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.
"Due to Squamish’s marine climate all fixed protection should be made of stainless steel. The
recommended best practice is that bolts be a minimum of ⅜ inches in diameter and 2½ inches long, made of stainless steel, and designed or certified by the manufacturer with a minimum breaking strength of 22 kN (~5000 lbs). Hangers should also be stainless steel and designed and certified by the manufacturer for climbing with a minimum breaking strength of 22 kN (~5000 lbs)." --Squamish Access Society (SAS), BC Parks Canada
