Mining and Ground Support

Split Set® friction rock stabilizers are used for underground or surface support in many applications:

Underground Mine Roof Support & Mine Roof Bolting

Every kind of underground mine uses Split Set® friction rock bolts for mining and ground support. Miners use them for mine roof bolting and mine roof support as well as to pin mesh, hang conveyors, hold pipes, and cables, secure rails in place, and for other needs.

Ground Support for Tunnels and Other Excavations

Split Set® stabilizers have solved many problems for contractors in construction and in maintaining railway and road tunnels, hydropower tunnels, powerhouse and storage caverns, shafts, water and sewage tunnels, and others.

Ground Support for Surface Jobs Split Sets are being used more often for above ground applications or anywhere reliable ground stabilization is needed. Open-pit mine and quarry operators use them to stabilize high walls for the most effective mine and ground support. Open-pit miners find that using Split Set® stabilizers with mesh can permit a steeper mining angle, reducing overburden removal.

Contractors find Split Set® friction rock stabilizers ideal for attaching screen to control spalling cuts. Construction contractors use them with mesh to tie back the ground and contain rock falls on steep highway cuts, as well as in building excavations.
