Platipus percussion driven mechanical anchors are a unique, modern and versatile device that can be rapidly deployed in most displaceable ground conditions.
CostinRoe designed a jib crane baseplate and footing incorporating 4no. Platipus B6 Anchor Systems. 200mm diameter core holes were initially drilled into a 300mm thick concrete slab to facilitate mechanically driving the Platipus B6 Anchor Systems to depths of 2.5m.
Working Load requirements of each anchor system was 85kN with each anchor system being on-site Proof Load tested to 100kN.
The Platipus Earth Anchoring System was chosen as the preferred solution to stabilise and provide a holding down force to the 1.5 ton jib crane arrangement for the following main
