Install Examples

What typically happens, the mine will assign a qualified mine engineer to assess the install site and take core samples if necessary. The mine will be responsible for the final install decisions and design based on their engineer’s findings.

Once the mine engineers determine their best option for their mine we can assist with other example drawings, support and council.

Some mines will build a block wall and attach the frame to the block wall.

Many hard rock mines typically

  • Drill into the ribs & roof
  • Use rock bolts and rebar and weld this to the outer frame
  • And then screen
  • And shotcrete the wall to finish
