  • Structural anchors: In the construction industry, anchors refer to mechanical devices used to attach or secure one structural element to another. Examples include anchor bolts, which are used to fasten steel structures to concrete foundations, or expansion anchors, which are used to attach fixtures or equipment to walls or ceilings.

  • Advertising anchors: In the marketing and advertising industry, anchors are used as a reference point or starting point for a brand's message or campaign. This could include a tagline or catchphrase that serves as a memorable and recognizable reference point for the brand.

  • News anchors: In the media industry, anchors are the people who deliver the news or host a TV or radio program. They serve as the face and voice of the program, and are responsible for presenting the content in a clear and engaging manner.
