Pioneering Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®) for over 37 Years


This pond, owned by the local commune of Wilster, was losing water due to badly eroded sections of embankment. After draining the pond and preparing the embankment, a total of 375m2 Concrete Canvas Ltd CC8TM was installed around the pond perimeter. Platipus S2 ARGS® systems, with corrosion resistant stainless steel wire, was then rapidly installed along the toe of the concrete matting. Each anchor system was then loadlocked using a simple hand tool, creating a tight finish. Finally, the Concrete Canvas was hydrated resulting in a secure erosion free area.
