Mechanical Cable Anchor

MECHANICAL CABLE ANCHORS

MECHANICAL ANCHORS are primarily used as secondary support in hard rock mines. They are used both in development ends and in the stopes. Mechanical Anchors are supplied complete with dome plate or our innovative square plate, barrel, wedge and grout fittings (breather tube, grout tube and Gasket). The Mechanical anchors should be full column grouted to prevent corrosion.

Mechanical trusses are generally used for supporting slips, faults, bullnoses, large roof spans, friable roof conditions (used in conjunction with mesh and straps), pillar wrapping  support. Trusses are made to the client’s required length. 

DYNAMIC TESTING of anchors are carried out on our 50 tonne test rig. Pre-load indicators are tested to ensure that they activate at the specified loads. Anchors are also tested to destruction to validate ultimate breaking strength.
