Pioneering Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®) for 40 Years


Vinyl Sheet Piling for Sea Wall – USA

Platipus Anchors - Flag of UK

Project Overview

Harry Shipman was building a new residence along a salt water channel off the Sound along Roanoke Islands West side. The lot was wooded with nice pine trees and wanted a low impact solution to tie back his new vinyl sheet piling wall.


In lieu of a concrete dead-man which would have destroyed many of the trees Platipus Anchors were driven 16′ deep on a 20 degree down angle. The anchors were loadlocked and certified to hold 12,000 lbs.
