American Earth Anchors’ patented Penetrators have been used successfully at Burning Man for many years to secure art installations. Penetrator anchors are easy to install into the playa’s hardpan surface and they’re easy to remove as well with minimal impact to the playa. Made of heat-treated aluminum, Penetrator anchors are heavy-duty, yet lightweight.
The desired load capacity for your structure will determine which size anchor you’ll need, and installation methods will vary by anchor size. The most common power tool used for Penetrator installation is an impact wrench, but the anchors can be installed by hand with ratchet wrench and steel pipe for leverage.
