Platipus Anchors LimitedPlatipus Anchors Limited
Since 2013


Platipus Anchors are the global market leaders in the design, manufacture and supply of mechanical earth anchoring products. We are renowned for providing some of the most innovative and cost effective anchoring solutions for the Civil Engineering and Construction industries.

Anchored Reinforced Grid Solutions (ARGS):

Stabilizing slopes offer significant challenges. Many times the lack of deep rooted vegetation, excess water, poor drainage and over steepening make them susceptible to erosion or instability. Platipus Anchors has over 30 years of experience and has proven that the combination of Percussive Driven Earth Anchors (PDEAs) and a facing material strong enough to support the load generated by the PDEA will stabilize these applications.
Surface Erosion – S2 Zip Anchor and S2 Geo / S2 ARGS Anchor Systems
Shallow Slide Protection – S4 & S6 ARGS Anchor Systems
Deep Seated Failure and Cut Slope Faces – Bespoke Anchoring Solutions
Deep seated failures can be repaired using larger Stealth and Bat anchors along with a solid geotechnical engineered design.
In conjunction with our online Anchor Load Calculator guideline software an Engineer can design a low impact economical solution.
Typically, this begins with a review of the soils report and installation of a test anchor to prove the holding requirements are met.

Drainage Solutions

Water saturation, due to heavy rainfall and insufficient drainage, leads to the softening of clay soils within slopes and increases hydraulic forces behind earth retaining structures. Plati-Drain is a unique solution that reduces pore water pressure within clay slopes and behind retaining walls. Unlike conventional weep holes Plati-Drain provides deep penetration, this can be in excess of 10m/ 33′. It can also help prevent shallow or deep seated slope failures and is available as a ‘Passive’ or ‘Active’ solution. The ‘Passive’ system uses a sacrificial anchor head to drive the Plati-Drain into its optimum position providing an immediate channel for water to drain. The ‘Active’ system has an additional wire tendon attached to the anchor which allows it to be loadlocked, providing simultaneous draining and restraining capability.
