Platipus® Anchors are renowned for providing some of the most innovative and cost-effective anchoring solutions for the Civil Engineering and Construction industries. The Platipus ground anchor system is versatile and can be rapidly deployed in most displaceable ground conditions. They create minimal disturbance of the soil during installation, post-tensioned to the engineers determined load and are immediately serviceable.

Excavating by nature can be unsafe. Reinforcement of unprotected excavations help ensure that unstable soil / slopes remain stable and supported, preventing cave-ins and other dangerous circumstances. Platipus provides a range of innovative anchoring solutions to reinforce excavations during construction projects and are widely accepted by Local, State and Federal Agencies.
Retaining structures become necessary when grade changes are present and space is limited, or when a bulkhead/seawall is necessary. They are often used to create stable surfaces for buildings, roads or bridges. Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®) can be used to support these structures by means of a modern approach to create an economical long-term tie back solution.
Plati-Drain® Managing Hydrostatic Pressure
Ground water in a slope can be problematic, as pressure builds, slip planes become lubricated, soils weaken, and global instability can become a concern. Platipus Plati-Drain® can be used pre-emptively in designs, or to alleviate pressure conditions after they’ve been identified.
Marine, Underwater & Shoreline Applications
Platipus can provide anchoring solutions for a diverse range of applications within the marine sector including buoys, floating docks and pontoons, erosion control, seawalls, levee protection and overtopping.
