Hollow Injectable Cablebolts Surface Control – a critical component of safety In 2013, there were 265 injuries due to roof and rib failures Rib falls injuries, 75% result in lost time, account for 25% of ground fall accidents Most rib injuries and fatalities occur at depths >700 ft
Hollow Injectable Cablebolts Mesh Type (5’ X 15’ sheets) Aperture, (inch x inch) Weight, (lbs ) Welded Wire Mesh - 4 gauge 4 x 481.5 Welded Wire Mesh - 6 gauge 4 x 459.1 Welded Wire Mesh - 8 gauge 4 x 442.1 Welded Wire Mesh – 10 gauge 4 x 429.2 FlexKnot TM 25004 x 6 13.9 FlexKnot TM 35004 x 3 21.5 Higher Strength + Lower Weight Easier Material Handling
Hollow Injectable Cablebolts Summary Ground and rib fall accidents continue to plague the mining industry > mesh is a proven solution FlexKnotFlexKnot mesh was specifically designed for mining applications > higher strength, lighter, stiffer and corrosion protected Rolled mesh can reduce bolting cycle times and the new Fletcher handling system is being full-scale tested > improved ergonomics ~ faster cycle Rib control, Remedial work and Highwall stabilization have already proven to provide total surface control and easier to install > reduce total costs
Hollow Injectable Cablebolts We could sure use some FlexKnot between these timbers
