Lyon Equipment, one of the leading distributors in the British outdoor industry, is expanding its own product range with the Anchora, a single-piece top anchor. The company distributes a range of outdoor brands, from Petzl to Gregory Packs, La Sportiva, Exped, Julbo, Light My Fire and many others, but it also has its own manufacturing entity for the Lyon brand at its head office in Tebay, Cumbria. Starting with caving ladders, it has expanded to make bags, slings and rescue equipment, with a catalog featuring about 50 items. The production unit involves 25 people, including two designers and one product manager. Developed for climbing walls, the Anchora stands out with its one-piece design, which reduces the risk of stress, corrosion and cracking. The stainless steel anchor offers five attachment points for various connecting and loading configurations, allowing positioning of connectors and rope away from the structure.
