Vineyards, Orchards, Hops, Soft Fruit and Fruit Protection - Introduction
Platipus are market leaders in the design, manufacture and supply of mechanical earth anchoring products. Founded in 1982, we are renowned for providing some of the most innovative and cost effective anchoring solutions for the Landscape, Civil Engineering and Utility industries.
Technology in the vineyard and fruit growing industry improves almost with every harvest. The anchoring point for any trellis or crop protection system, light or heavy, is usually the most important part of the structure, particularly when the fruit is ripening and the canopy is at its largest. Without a secure reliable anchor point the result could be catastrophic and costly.
The Platipus anchor is a unique, modern and versatile device that can be rapidly deployed in most displaceable ground, including chalk. It is driven from ground level using conventional installation equipment, can be proof loaded to an exact holding capacity and made fully operational immediately.
