TKA Edge Lift Anchors

  • The ultimate edge lift anchor
  • The unique design prevents the lifting clutch from bearing on the concrete. This means no spalling of the edges using a TKA Anchor

The Anchor

Liftfix TKA Edge Lift Anchor is used for edge lifting in tilt up and precast applications and for transporting such concrete elements e.g. walls and beams.

The advantage of the Liftfix TKA Edge Lift Anchor is due to its unique design - during lifting the Liftfix Lifting Clutch bears against the head of the anchor and not against the concrete.

Recess Former + Fastening Screw

A special rubber oval recess former is used to locate the anchor and to create a void for lifting. The Liftfix Fixing Screw is used to connect the Liftfix TKA Edge Lift Anchor Recess Former to the formwork.

Special care must be taken when installing the anchor to ensure that the tilt-up anchor and the recess former is installed in the direction of lift.

When the concrete has cured, the recess former is removed and the Liftfix Lifting Clutch can then be attached. The Liftfix Lifting Clutch is used for edge lifting the element to an upright and for transport or installation.
