SKU: N/A Category:



The Platipus rootball fixing system, including Plati-Mat , remains the preferred method of securing rootballed, airpot and containerized semi-mature trees. The ease of installation and lack of unsightly guy wires makes it the first choice of customers.

Over the past three decades, we have developed an extensive range of unique underground fixing solutions to suit most applications. The Plati-Mat® allows secure positioning of newly transplanted trees, whilst offering major benefits over traditional root support systems.

Available in five standard sizes, the Plati-Mat® can be tailored to suit most rootball dimensions. This significant development allows faster installation and provides a greater contact surface area at the top of the rootballed airport or container grown tree.

The Benefits include;

  • Planting at the nursery line
  • Reduced overall installation time
  • More secure fixing creating better establishment
  • No unsightly stakes or timber above ground
  • Suitable for most rootballed, airport and containerized stock
  • 4 Leg options available for larger trees
What application am I best for?

I am the preferred and most popular tree anchoring system and I come with loads of benefits. I am best suited for earth planted trees or trees in planter boxes with no solid base. I provide a fast and easy installation, no tripping hazards or stakes above ground, more secure fixing and a large variety for all trees!

The Platipus Earth Anchor (Specification) 

Our Percussion Driven Earth Anchor (PDEA®) is a unique, modern and versatile device that can be rapidly installed in three steps using simple hand or powered tools. The cutting edge design ensures fast and easy installation and when fully load locked the anchor is immediately ready for use.

These systems are specifically designed to provide security and stability to the transplanted tree for three to five years whilst the roots establish themselves. Thereafter key elements of the system will degrade to allow unrestricted root growth and the remaining parts may be recycled.

Product Dimensions L x B x H (mm) Materials Anchor Cable Lengths
S21 80 x 28 x 25 Aluminium Alloy 0.6m
S41 121 x 41 x 34 Aluminium Alloy 0.75m
S61 171 x 58 x 50 Aluminium Alloy 1.2m
S81 263 x 90 76 Aluminum Alloy 1.5m
B41 310 x 110 x 93 Galvanised Spheroidal Graphite Iron 1.5m

The following anchors are used in our tree systems and are selected according to the size of the tree, the design and layout of the planting area and local soil and weather conditions. Where appropriate, we can test our anchors on-site, prior to installation, to provide quantifiable load data. Bespoke solutions for projects requiring a longer design life can be supplied using stainless steel accessories.
