Platipus® Tie Down Anchors
Platipus offers a versatile range of anchoring systems to secure all types of temporary structures.
Where alternative methods are heavy, unreliable and expensive to transport, our lightweight solutions can be proof tested upon installation using locally available equipment. Our Stealth Anchors on wire tendons with tamper proof components can be connected to the base or lower part of the structure, alternatively a webbing strap can also be used. Cast iron anchors are available for hard ground conditions.Where time and resources are limited, we design our anchoring systems to match the exact load requirements and design life of the temporary structure and can advise the safest and most efficient installation technique for your project.

Buildings & Shelters
Storage Containers, Portable Buildings
Platipus Anchors are ideally suited to provide standard foundation solutions for temporary or permanent buildings and shelters. With the ability to manufacture bespoke anchoring systems, even the most difficult and unique challenges can be overcome.
For temporary use the anchors are supplied with galvanised wire, or for permanent structures a high grade stainless steel wire is used. When securing containers a pair of anchors and webbing strap combined with our tamper proof ratchet tensioner is an ideal solution.
Each solution is available in various anchor sizes to suit a range of soil conditions and load requirements. Using simple hand tools and readily available equipment, the anchor installation is quick and easy and can be completed in even the most remote locations using unskilled labour.
