Platipus® Buoyancy Anchors

THE PLATIPUS® PERCUSSION DRIVEN EARTH ANCHORS (PDEAs®) OFFER A LIGHTWEIGHT CORROSION RESISTANT ANCHOR THAT CAN BE DRIVEN FROM GROUND LEVEL USING CONVENTIONAL PORTABLE EQUIPMENT.

Anchor installation creates minimal disturbance in the soil during installation, can be stressed to an exact holding capacity and made fully operational immediately. As a completely dry system, it also has minimal impact on the environment.  

The Platipus Buoyancy Control Anchoring System has many attachments and tensioning devices to connect to the pipe or tank being anchored. This is a quick and cost-effective way to prevent structures floating when installing in areas with high groundwater.

Platipus® and PDEA® are Registered Trademarks of Platipus Anchor, registered in England.
