ECA-Lift

- The better anchor for twin walls

What is an ECA-Lift anchor?

The patented ECA-Lift®-anchor is the better anchor for twin walls. It consists of a compression element, made out of high resistance concrete, connected by a steel wire. The anchor is certified for a payload up to 3.0 tons with a minimum safety factor of three. (Test conducted by Hasselt University – Construction and Engineering Research Group, Belgium in 2018).

As part of our ongoing quality guarantee, the production process is closely monitored given the importance of the anchor to safe and efficient construction operations. The cable and high-strength concrete come with both an Econac and the individual component manufacturer certifications.. Product traceability is assured.

There are 3 versions of Econac’s advanced wall anchor systems: the standard ECA-Lift® anchor, the ECA-Lift®-PLUS and ECA-Lift®-ISO, which has an insulated element.

Our standard ECA-Lift®anchor for double wall elements, flexible , easy to install and lightweight!

The ECA-Lift®-PLUS anchor has a cut in the compression element (to compensate the lateral movement of insulated double walls). This means non-crack inducer in case of thermal expansion.

The ECA-Lift®-ISO has a thermal brake, made possible by adding a high compression resistant and insulating insert in the compression element. This means non-crack inducer in case of thermal expansion and less thermal conductivity!

Benefits

  • Use of a high resistant concrete compression element in connection with a steel wire
  • Anchorage is distributed over the whole length of the steel cable
  • Smaller thermal bridge, completely thermally interrupted in the case of the ECALIFT-ISO anchor
  • Guaranteed use of non-organic materials to assure strenght (e.g. wood, ...)
  • Does not rust due to galvanised cable
  • Gradually breaks when overloaded, unlike with a metal rod which can break abruptly (without warning)
  • Flexible installation of the ECA-Lift®, due to the flexibility of the cable
  • Small size when packed on a pallet (ex. 600 pieces of ECA-Lift® on 1 pallet for 150mm), reducing storage place and transport cost
  • Non-crack inducer, incase of ECA-Lift® Plus and ECA-Lift® ISO
  • Delivering improved efficiency and safety for contractors and the construction industry

Technical specifications

All three types exist in 47 different sizes (A = 90 tot 550 mm). See the table underneath. Taken into account a concrete cover according to the EC2 of 25 mm for a wall thickness of 250 mm, an ECA-Lift® anchor of 200 is to be used A=200 (A=250-50=200).
