Fall protection for underground mining and tunnelling!
Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands of fall protection equipment has announced the launch of their new DBI-SALA Saflok™ Fall Protection Mining Anchors.
The Saflok™ Hybrid Mining Bolt Swivel Anchor and the Saflok™ Mining Bolt Anchor with Swivelling O-Ring, two anchorage connectors designed to offer the best underground protection for workers employed in mining or tunnelling applications. Both mining products are removable, simple to employ, and multi-directional, giving them the ability to work in horizontal, vertical, and overhead surfaces.
Hybrid Mining Bolt Swivel Anchor
The innovative Hybrid Mining Bolt Swivel Anchor, which has a 22.2kN maximum capacity, is a semi-permanent solution designed exclusively for insertion within a 47mm friction rock bolt. By rotating the bolt, the user can expand or retract the two wedges to secure or remove the anchor from the friction rock bolt. The Hybrid Mining Swivel Anchor also features a swivel ring anchorage connection point for ease of use and mobility in various applications.
Mining Bolt Anchor with Swivelling O-Ring
The Mining Bolt Anchor with Swivelling O-Ring, also capable of supporting 22.2kN, is a portable friction rock bolt anchorage connector that inserts directly inside a 47mm friction rock bolt. The Anchor features a spring-tensioned trigger and two retractor cables that allow for immediate removal and relocation to another hole. The swivelling O-ring feature serves as the anchorage connection point, allowing for an easy hook up.
“We wanted to expand our line of anchorage solutions for those working in the mining industries,” said Ian Heslop, Sales Director with Capital Safety Australia & New Zealand. “We put a lot of thought and research into the Saflok™ Hybrid Mining Bolt Swivel Anchor and the Saflok™ Mining Bolt Anchor with Swivelling O-Ring, resulting in two new products that are ideal for fall arrest, restraint, work positioning and rescue systems.”
The Hybrid Mining Bolt Swivel Anchor and the Mining Bolt Anchor with Swivelling O-Ring offer both a temporary and a more permanent solution to anchorage connection in mines, depending on the location of the friction rock bolt.
