Deadmen Anchoring System
Highland Tank’s Deadmen Anchoring
Systems are designed to secure
water tanks and pressure vessels at
installations. Polyester or steel Hold-
Down Straps and concrete beams
are used to anchor water tanks and
pressure vessels to counteract their
natural buoyant forces.
Polyester Hold-Down Straps
Polyester Hold-Down Straps are
intended for underground use only.
They are made from 3" wide 100%
polyester webbing. These straps
have a large reinforced loop at each
end for connecting to the Concrete
Deadmen Anchor hardware. A length of
1/2" diameter wire rope and six cable
clamps are included with each strap for
connecting the strap to one side of
the concrete anchoring. A hook-to-
hook turnbuckle is used for attaching
the strap to the anchoring on the other
side.
Standard Features
‹‹ No strap liners are required because
there are no metallic components
in the strap system that can make
contact with the tank
‹‹ Available without the cable, clamps,
and turnbuckles, for use with
Concrete Deadmen Anchors
