An anchor beam in traditional timber frame construction is a beam which has a long tenon at its end that passes through a post (a through tenon) and is pegged beyond the post to keep it in place. An anchor beam might also be used to describe a beam in steel or other construction which is bent at the end for fixing.
The term beam anchor is also used in construction either to describe a tie element that is used to make a rigid connection between the floor and posts or it is used to describe the anchor point for a safety harness systems.
