HBA: The Helical Brace Anchor Connection System

Designed to eliminate the troublesome need to remove the shoe on temporary wall braces when connecting to helical ground anchors, the patented AdvanConn® Helical Brace Anchor (HBA) makes the connection safely and efficiently.

Due to long-term exposure to weather and job site conditions, brace shoes can be difficult to remove from the wall brace and once removed are frequently lost. The HBA provides a simple solution to this costly problem and affords a greater degree of flexibility when aligning the connection of the brace and helical anchor. Tested to 23,000 pounds ultimate tensile capacity and subjected to more than 1 million load cycles, the HBA provides a safe, efficient, cost-effective solution to the challenges of making the helical anchor-to-wall brace connection.
