Ground Anchors & Geosynthetic Applicators

      The use of geotextiles and related products has increased significantly over the years containing many applications and currently supports many civil engineering applications including roadsairfieldsrailroads

embankmentsretaining structures, reservoirs, canals, dams, bank protection, coastal engineering and 

construction site silt fences or 'geotube'. While many possible design methods or combinations of methods are available to the geotextile applicator, the ultimate decision for a particular application usually takes one of three directions: design by cost and availability, design by specification, or design by function.

Poly Plates™, Poly Pins™ and the Splike™ were born out of necessity in the field based on a combination of those 3 directions in where cost, availability and function were required to form the foundation of a reliable and efficient securing product in which to adhere geotextiles and landscaping fabric to their required locations. Poly Plates™ are an environmentally friendly, extremely strong and cost effective alternative to the tin washers that are currently in use today when applying geotextiles or anchoring earthworks.

The Splike™ works the same as any other steel spike (or ‘nail’ if that term is preferred). The main differences are in the physical design which dramatically reduces the weight of the unit itself, and in the design of the head and shaft of the Splike™. The head of the Splike is a unique form of hardened rolled-steel that provides a strong and competent impact-point for a hammer to drive the Splike into the ground, and the hollow shaft utilizes the dimensional benefits of a cylinder which adds to the strength of the Splike in where it maintains a resistance to bending due to the natural push/pull forces that cylinders exert. The Splike™ maintains the same efficiency and strength-based properties of a solid steel ground spike, however it weighs half as much; the combined weight of the Splike™ and Poly Plate™ application system is approx. 115g (pin & washer), compared to current spike and washer combos at approx. 250g. Furthermore, when applied using the Splike™ chuck that we have designed for use with the Milwaukee™ Palm Nailer – you have the most efficient, lightweight, and cost-effective geotextile implementation system currently available.

Poly Plates™,  Poly Pins™ and Splikes™ are quickly growing to be the preferred choice for road building/civil contractors and landscapers throughout Canada and the U.S - Try Them On Your Project Today!
