FRIMEDA Lifting Anchor System TPA
The FRIMEDA lifting anchor system consists of flat steel anchors,
recess formers and lifting clutches. The design of the lifting
clutches and anchors permit loads in any direction. One of the main
benefits of this system is the availability of erection anchors for
tilting of thin elements with no edge breaking. The clutches can be
released either directly by hand at the clutch head or by remote
The anchors are made from a special quality of flat steel. The
anchor head has a hole in which the locking ring of the clutch can
engage. A visible manufacturers mark is embossed on each anchor;
this contains the product brand FRIMEDA (FR) with the system name
(F), the anchor type (e.g. S), the length of the anchor in cm (e.g.
13) and the load class (e.g. 2.5).
The ring clutch is positioned in the recess surrounding the cast-in
anchor and the locking latch is closed by hand, enabling the
locking ring to engage with the anchor head. The clutch is thus
connected with the anchor in a matter of seconds. The ring clutch
can now be pulled in all directions to allow for lifting, rotating
and pitching of the unit. There is no preferred direction. To
release, open the latch and the ring clutch can be removed. For
cases where access is difficult (see accident prevention
regulations (UVV)) remote control operated ring clutches are
available (TPA-F1, TPA-F2).
15 load classes from 0.7 to 26.0
numerous types of anchor
Confusion of load classes not possible, because only those
components that belong together fit together
Erection anchors protect the concrete when shear loads are
