SRU’s Anchoring Study was just published
This booklet is an attempt to consolidate technical information on anchoring solutions with the overall objective of contributing to the reduction of shelterrelated vulnerabilities that put the inhabitants’ lives at risks.
Anchors are commonly used in humanitarian response to fix and attach light shelters to the ground. In this publication anchors have been examined according to different parameters, such as resistance depending of the type of soils, cost effectiveness, ease and speed of set-up/dismantling/re-use when the shelter solution has to be mobile.
This study and in particular the test analysis on 18 anchoring solutions aims at providing field practitioners and decision makers with technical information and recommendations allowing them to identify the best anchoring option for their context of intervention.
