Capital Safety has introduced a new range of fall protection mining anchors for underground mining and tunnelling applications.

The new DBI-SALA Saflok fall protection mining anchors comprise of two anchorage connectors designed to offer excellent underground protection for workers employed in mining or tunnelling applications. 

The two mining anchors, Saflok hybrid mining bolt swivel anchor and Saflok mining bolt anchor with swivelling O-ring are removable, simple to employ, and multi-directional, allowing them to work in horizontal, vertical, and overhead surfaces.

Ian Heslop, Sales Director with Capital Safety Australia & New Zealand explains that the new mining anchors expand their line of anchorage solutions for the mining industries. The development of the Saflok hybrid mining bolt swivel anchor and the Saflok mining bolt anchor with swivelling O-ring is backed by detailed research, resulting in two new products that are ideal for fall arrest, restraint, work positioning and rescue systems.

The innovative hybrid mining bolt swivel anchor, which has a 22.2kN maximum capacity, is a semi-permanent solution designed exclusively for insertion within a 47mm friction rock bolt. By rotating the bolt, the user can expand or retract the two wedges to secure or remove the anchor from the friction rock bolt. The hybrid mining swivel anchor also features a swivel ring anchorage connection point for ease of use and mobility in various applications.

Also capable of supporting 22.2kN, the mining bolt anchor with a swivelling O-ring is a portable friction rock bolt anchorage connector that inserts directly inside a 47mm friction rock bolt. The anchor features a spring-tensioned trigger and two retractor cables that allow for immediate removal and relocation to another hole. The swivelling O-ring feature serves as the anchorage connection point, allowing for an easy hook up.

The hybrid mining bolt swivel anchors and the mining bolt anchors with swivelling O-ring offer a temporary as well as a more permanent solution for anchorage connection in mines, depending on the location of the friction rock bolt.

Capital Safety, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of height safety, confined space and industrial rescue equipment with 20 operating sites worldwide, is home of the DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands of fall protection equipment.
