Free software helps anchor selection process

Published:  13 July, 2010

KINGSTON-UPON-THAMES: JCP Construction Products, a specialist supplier of construction fixings to distributors, has launched a new software programme to help builders, architects and specifiers design and select the best anchor for safety critical applications.


The Anchor Calculation Programme is easy to use with simple graphics and data input clearly explained to ensure all factors are taken into consideration.

The programme gives the option of a number of different anchor configurations, allowing for key parameters such as concrete thickness, anchor spacing, edge distance and loads in all directions. Anchors can also be filtered out depending upon the material and finish required.

A report sheet can be downloaded giving all the calculation results as well as product identification and installation details. The wide range of JCP anchors with European Technical Approval (ETA) is also clearly indicated.
