This forum has been initiated to deal with TECHNICAL queries regarding the MCSA's \"press release\" about the 2 failed anchors. Please don't post rubbish, else the clutter will confuse this sensitive and technical issue. (email@example.com)
This has got to be a pertinant question. I understand the one failure was at a Montague crag. The report, as I understand it, also attributes that failure to SCC. I thought that SCC would not have been an issue at such an inland crag. Is there a possible explanation for this? It did not seem to come out in the report or I have I missed something.
The UPAT M10 EXA (double clip) anchor should be set to 45Nm, and the newer fischer FBN 10x90 A4 (single clip) anchors should be set to 30Nm. The FBN 10x90 anchors are now available in A4 (316) stainless steel and are in stock in our Cape Town branch (021) 552-4973.
