With the ever increasing desire to create beautiful landscapes in challenging urban environments and roof gardens there are many occasions where a standard tree anchoring system cannot be used due to the location of buried services or shallow planting areas. The award-winning D-MAN® is a strong, compact and lightweight system primarily designed to replace the traditional kerbstone or sleeper deadman.

D-MAN® can be used individually or in multiples and cells simply lock / unlock together. It has a distinctive letterbox style wire tendon anchor point and a unique cup for valuable water storage. D-MAN® is made from recycled plastic and when combined Plati-Mat® and our own engineered ratchet tensioner provides excellent stability to the tree.
