Used as a pair they make a nice clean, unobtrusive anchor station. Choice of 10 or 12mm. PLX is Fixe's name for HCR - see features.
The FIXE Ring Anchor is a popular Top Anchor unit. A pair of Ring Anchors make an excellent anchoring system for any type of route. Ring Anchors should be placed on the same horizontal plane, at least 8” apart in good rock. A single Ring Anchor may be used in conjunction with other FIXE anchors. This unit should be placed in pairs or with another Top Anchor unit.
PLX is the name Fixe has given to the well-known Duplex 2205 stainless steel. This material has a two-phase micro-structure of ferritic steel and austenitic stainless steel. PLX arises from the combination of the two materials.
PLX has some outstanding properties:
Strength. PLX is nearly twice as strong as austenitic stainless steel.
Corrosion-resistance. PLX has ranges of resistance to common corrosion that are slightly higher than those of A4 (316) stainless steel.
Resistance to stress corrosion cracking (SCC). PLX, due to its two-phase micro-structure, provides greater resistance to SCC. Stress corrosion cracking may result in sudden breakage with common austenitic steels (A2 and A4).
