Pioneering Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®) for over 40 Years


Westbury Station Embankment Drainage – UK

Flag of United Kingdom

Project Overview

Provide drainage to prevent water build-up behind a sheet piled wall retaining a railway embankment.

Project Solution

Plati-Drains® were percussively driven 6m into the embankment at a slight inclination through slots cut into the piles at 4.8m centres. In this application the anchor head is a vehicle to drag the drain material into the ground providing an immediate channel for the water to flow from deep inside the embankment. The Plati-Drain system is simple, quick and cost effective.

Anchor System:  B6T cast iron anchor c/w 7m of Plati-Drain

Quantity: 16      Soil Type: Clay
