Fluke Anchor Kits for Turbidity Curtain and Boom Installation

fluke anchor kitAnchoring systems, including the fluke anchor kit, are essential to the success of your boom or turbidity curtain application. The most common type of anchor is the fluke style anchor (also known as a Danforth Anchor or Lightweight Anchor). Fluke Anchors are easily recognizable by their two pivoting flukes and long dowel like stock. Best suited for sand or mud, fluke anchors have an outstanding holding power-to-weight ratio. Danforth anchors are the ideal choice to help keep your turbidity curtain or boom in place due to the lightweight design and large holding strength.

See Fluke Anchor SystemFluke style anchoring kits are one of the most important accessories for sites dealing with moving currents, waves, tides or tough marine conditions. The fluke anchor system kit will help stabilize your floating boom during operation by attaching the anchor directly to your buoy, then to your boom, minimizing the amount of pressure placed on the barrier. Having the right anchor pattern, installation design, and anchors can significantly reduce and redistribute loads placed on your barrier, which will increase the longevity of your floating boom or barrier.

Anchors are required for any floating barrier in moving water conditions, and we suggest using this fluke style anchor with Type 1, Type 2, and Type 3 Turbidity curtains, as well as open water and river booms. The fluke anchor is strong enough to endure tough marine elements, which is why we recommend this Danforth style anchoring kit to help reduce and redistribute loads placed on your barrier.

See Fluke Style Anchor System Pricing* Fluke anchors are not suited for rocky or grassy bottoms, as they are designed to bury themselves as they set in clay, sand, and mud. When deployed, Danforth anchors land on the bottom and lie flat as the flukes dig the anchor into the ground. It will eventually bury itself and part of the anchor line as it holds your floating barrier or boat in place. These fluke anchors are made with high strength steel, and have a galvanized coating to ensure long lasting durability.
