Swift Metals Services division Anchorage Group presents a new generation of pipeline supports and mounting brackets for the water, energy, oil and gas industries Australia-wide.

Swift Metals Services is a specialist repetition metal fabrication and component manufacturer offering a comprehensive range of metal manufacturing services, high quality stainless steel products, pipe supports and brackets, and a complete in-house facility for tool design, tool construction and ongoing tool maintenance.

Manufactured in Australia from local and imported components, the Anchorage height adjustable flange mount pipe support system is available in galvanised or powder-coated finishes. Alternatively the pipe saddles and tube supports can be formed from stainless steel for additional corrosion resistance. 

Anchorage height adjustable pipe supports incorporate a pipe flange mounting with adjusting collar, grub screw and locknut, and are supplied complete with a welded base-plate and stanchion. The centreline of the pipe support system can be adjusted up to 120mm to accommodate height variations across undulating terrain without the need for cutting or welding on site. 

The height adjustment feature eliminates any need for tailoring, welding, fabricating or cutting of the pipe support mechanism on site, or any requirement for trucks equipped with welding equipment and qualified welding personnel. Anchorage height adjustable pipe supports therefore, help civil contractors and pipeline installers save time and money while improving on-site safety.

Since no welding or cutting is required on-site, Anchorage height adjustable pipe supports can be safely installed in gas fields or areas where there is a danger of fire or explosion. There is no need to obtain regulatory Hot Work Permits.

Piping contractors across the country are proving that pipelines, de-pressurisation stations and pumping stations are quicker to install with Anchorage pipe supports, saving them time, workload and cost, particularly on remote sites, where accommodation and travel can add substantially to capital costs.

While Anchorage height adjustable pipe supports have been developed to fit traditional pipe sizes for ease of selection and speed of production, Swift also continues to produce specialised pipe saddles and custom pipe support configurations to accommodate individual site and client requirements.
