Although all POOL® anchors have a high holding ability, the POOL® TW anchor shows best the combination of holding power and fluke surface. The anchor has large flat flukes made out of high tensile steel plate material. The thickness varies from 15 mm up to 140 mm (depending on the anchor size).The extreme points and the inner edges of the flukes are sharpened in order to enable them to dig in easily. To prevent the anchor from digging in too deep, the POOL® TW anchor is equipped with crown plates.
An interesting result of this design is that a relative low force in transverse direction is necessary to lift the anchor. Like most of the POOL® anchors, the POOL® TW anchor is as fully balanced available. This enables the anchor to be smoothly stowed the fully balanced execution into an anchor pocket.
