Percussion Driven Anchors

A Percussion Driven Anchor (PDA) is a device designed to support structures, most commonly used in geotechnical and construction applications. Also known as a ground anchor, earth anchor or mechanical anchor, it is impact driven into the ground. PDAs are used in both temporary or permanent applications, including supporting retaining walls, guyed masts, and large tents.


The Platipus Rootball Fixing System, including Plati-Mat®, remains the preferred method of securing rootballed, airpot and containerised semi-mature trees. The ease of installation and lack of unsightly guy wires makes it the first choice of customers.
