Maccaferri range of options for safeguarding tunnels, shafts and adits
Operating underground encompasses the necessary processes and applications of specific techniques to extract valuable minerals. We offer numerous solutions to line tunnels in order to control any loose and falling debris that often occurs during mining operations. Depending on the specific risks, these solutions include steel or polymer meshes, or fibre reinforced shotcrete. Our high strength Pararib® tunnel lining polymer mesh is white in colour, flame retardant and light to handle in confined areas. Wirand® steel and polymer fibres are added to pumped shotcrete to reinforce it and stabilise shafts and adits and can even replace the traditional steel mesh.
Minimal disruption with maximum extraction. Rapid to install, these solutions minimise disruption to the extraction operation.
