Mining or Tunnel Reinforcing
Dramex is an ideal material that can be applied to many mining projects. The use of Dramex throughout the mining industry allows for greater security of miners. As
Dramex is strong and lightweight it is easily manipulated, applied and installed in restrained areas. The openings created during the expanding process allows for good visibility essential in any mining
application. The following lists uses of Dramex in specific mining applications:
Mining Tunnel & Stope Reinforcing
Carbon steel mesh with large apertures used as safety screen and as reinforcing for mining applications. Mesh is rock bolted to form a
continuous screen to hold back loose rocks. Mesh sometimes utilized galvanized. Mesh protects miners from sudden small rockfall. Absence of mesh joints provides greater security than welded mesh.
Expanded grating used to line elevator shafts. Grating screen contains any loose rocks allowing them to fall to shaft bottom but not enter shaft where
the elevator is working. Expanded Carbon Steel Manway Landings Platforms or expanded steel located at various levels in escape shafts. Vertical ladder escape routes with rest places every 10-20 meters.

The use of Dramex Guards have many advantages: The components guarded within the mine can be inspected without removing the guard. Grease
fittings and oil cups can be placed through the openings without cutting large holes in the guard. Dramex guards serves to allow smaller particles of spilled material to pass through the guard with
minimal buildups. Dramex offers unique guard designs
