Spin anchors are primarily used as secondary support in soft rock mines, mainly coal mines. The anchors are usually point anchored with quick set resin and, dependent on the Rock Engineer’s requirements, they may also be grouted. Spin anchors are supplied with complete dome plate, barrel and wedge. A grout tube, breather tube and gasket are provided separately should the anchor need to be grouted.
Multibulb Passive Anchors
Multibulb passive anchors are manufactured with fishhooks. The bulb spacing is carried out to the client’s specification.
Spin Trusses are used for supporting slips, faults, bullnoses, large roof spans, pillar wrapping support and friable roof conditions. The friable roof conditions are used in conjunction with mesh and straps. Trusses are customised to the client’s required length.
