Platipus Anchors is the world leader in the design, manufacture and supply of mechanical earth anchoring products. Founded in 1983, we are renowned for providing some of the most innovative and cost effective anchoring solutions for the Civil Engineering and Construction industries.
The percussion driven mechanical anchor is a unique, modern and versatile device that can be rapidly deployed in most displaceable ground conditions. It offers a lightweight corrosion resistant anchor that can be driven from ground 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 the Platipus anchor requires no grout or curing time and creates no mess or contamination, delivering excellent performance for applications including: –
• Retaining Walls • Slope Stabilisation
• Bridges • Sheet Piling
• Erosion Control • Gabion Support
• Rock Retention • Buoyancy Control / Pipelines
• Drainage • Guyed Structures
• Scaffolding • Foundations
• Landfill Capping • Portable Buildings / Structures
• General Security • Marine Applications
• Tunnel Linings • Temporary Works
The Platipus presentation will explain how a mechanical anchor works, the different anchor designs, sizes and available materials to suit a wide range of design life requirements and will finish with a selection of typical scenarios and application examples.
