Platipus has long been recognized as a pioneer in the civil engineering and construction industries for developing alternative solutions for conventional structural applications.
For over 30 years Platipus Anchors has been the market leader in innovative techniques to stabilize and irrigate newly planted trees.
The lack of deep rooted vegetation, excess water, poor drainage and over steepening makes slopes susceptible to erosion and instability. These situations can be addressed with the Anchor Reinforced Grid Solutions (ARGS).
High ground water offers significant challenges in controlling buoyancy issues with submerged pipes.
The unique design and installation method of Platipus Anchors makes it an optimal choice for marine construction. Our anchors are available in galvanized cast iron, heat treated aluminium that can be hard anodized and aluminium bronze.
Platipus has a selection of standard Percussive Driven Earth Anchor systems (PDEA's) suitable for a range of applications including guying pole lines / stays for new or refurbished electricity and telecommunication distribution networks, power line crossings, replacement towers and conductor restringing.
Technology in the vineyard and fruit growing industry improves with almost every harvest. The anchoring point and end post kit for any trellis, soft fruit or crop protection system is usually the most important part of the structure.
