In the mining industry, safety is paramount, with high priority also given to practicality and cost-effectiveness in combination. Tensar’s Mining Grid has high scores on all metrics, offering a lightweight alternative to conventional metal systems which is quick to install.
Using Tensar technology, the Mining BX and TX Grids are corrosion-resistant and flame retardant geogrids ideal for pillar wrapping and rib control. Tensar Mining Grids combined with Tensar’s Minex Rock Mesh, UX3340 Roof Mats and Rib Straps - equivalent in strength to 8 gage welded wire mesh, form a complete structural grid system suitable for many mining operations. A non flame-retardant and UV stabilized version, BX1610, has also been used effectively for highwall screen installations. Being lightweight and flexible, they’re not only easy-to-handle and safe to work with, but also help to increase production efficiency and decrease injury downtime.
