Anchored Reinforced Grid Solutions

The lack of deep rooted vegetation, excess water, poor drainage and over steepening makes slopes susceptible to erosion and instability. These situations can be addressed with the Anchor Reinforced Grid Solutions (ARGS® ).

Anchor Reinforced Grid Solutions (ARGS® ) is the use of a Platipus® Percussion Driven Earth Anchor (PDEA® ) in conjunction with surface protection materials to provide erosion protection in tie-down applications or slope stability for shallow plane failures. ARGS® can be integrated with most materials including geotextiles, HDPE liners, geogrids, articulated concrete blocks (ACB) and permanent erosion control blankets. Platipus works directly with materials manufacturers, engineers and contractors to insure the ARGS® solution is implemented properly as a complete solution.

Platipus Anchors also offers the Plati-Drain PDEA® horizontal wick drain. Water saturation due to heavy rainfall and insufficient drainage can lead to the softening of clay soils within slopes. Plati-Drain is a horizontal PDEA® drain that will reduce the pore water pressure in a clay slope.

Tie-down anchors are commonly used to hold down a surface protection material to protect against wind/rain erosion and are NOT considered stabilization anchors.

Tie-Down Applications:

Slope stability anchors require an independent design by a qualified geotechnical engineer. Based on this design, the anchors are driven a minimum distance beyond the failure plane to a designed spacing and required holding capacity. PDEAs® are often used with a HPTRM with low elongation to stabilize slopes against shallow plane failure as well as to support vegetation.
