Platipus Tree Anchoring Systems

Rootball Fixing System- Platimat

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

Over the past two decades, Platipus 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 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 and containerised stock

Deadman System - PlatimatDeadman System - Platimat

Designed to satisfy the requirements of a specialist market, deadman systems have enabled Platipus to offer effective solutions for planting in difficult urban environments, where services may be a problem.

The systems use kerbstones or sleepers as anchor points and providing that the soil placed on top of the kerbstones or sleepers has been well compacted before placing the tree in the pit, the systems offer a fast and efficient method of securing rootball trees up to 12 metres high.
