Robust, Durable, Safe, Light and Cost effective. Blast barricades have proven their worth in the deep level mining sector of South Africa for more than 20 years. These products have been subjected to vigorous external endurance tests. Our profile is specifically designed to absorb the maximum impact during blasting.
Virgin material has the valuable added advantage of being non-flammable and non-toxic; therefore, it does not emit harmful gasses, which are vital with regards to safety standards within the mining industry. The quality of virgin materials is extremely high in that it endures the harsh underground conditions.
Pipe lengths can be produced according to needs, but the main types produced for the mining industry are cut to 2.4m and 3m lengths.
Gate height is assembled to specification but the general configuration for mining application is from 4 to 9 pipes. Wall thickness can vary from 9mm upwards
The 63mm pipes can be extruded in different lengths and laced together to cover various working area heights or to customer specification.
Same pipes can be used to construct different lengths of ladders. The thinner sections assist with weight saving during installation which has cost advantages. The supplier is accredited and has well-structured quality management system, compliant with ISO 9001.
The blast barricades are manufactured from high density natural virgin white or black polyethylene (HDPE). They are laced together and clamped with steel wire rope to form the barricade gate.
