Mining Roof and Wall Support
While safety and practicality are extremely important in the mining industry, it’s also vital to maximise efficiency and minimise costs. In underground applications, Tensar technology has produced systems that are lightweight, easy to handle and quick to install.
How you can benefit
Tensar has a number of Mining Systems covering a wide range of underground mine and tunnel applications, including:
- Roof and Rib Control, using corrosion-proof Tensar grids combined with roof and rib straps that are easier and safer to handle and install than metal alternatives
- Longwall Screens with sections of Tensar grid screen that, unlike chain link, can be assembled above ground and easily transported underground for installation
- Highwall Screens incorporating strong, lightweight Tensar grids can secure steep faces, helping to control falling debris at mine entrances
- Road & Rail Reinforcement can be as important underground as on the surface, and Tensar geogrids can prevent rutting or maintain track geometry depending on the transport system used
