What is a Platipus Percussion Driven Earth Anchor (PDEA®)?

The Platipus® Percussion Driven Earth Anchor (PDEA®) is a unique, modern and versatile device that can be rapidly deployed in most displaceable ground conditions. It offers a lightweight corrosion resistant ground anchor that can be driven from surface level using conventional portable equipment. It creates minimal disturbance of the soil during installation, can be stressed to an exact holding capacity and made fully operational immediately. As a completely dry system it also has minimal environmental impact.

Over the past 35 years Platipus Anchors have developed a comprehensive range of temporary and permanent PDEA® Systems suitable for applications within the Civil Engineering & Construction, Landscape, Pipeline, Electricity & Communications, Marine, and Other Industries.
