For general large-surface ground support, MINAX® replaces welded mesh sheets or heavy mild steel chain-link mesh as a light-weight solution. It offers superior strength with significantly less overlap loss and allows significantly shorter installation times. Designed specifically for the underground mining industry, MINAX® 80/3 provides unparalleled quality through performance, durability and reliability - combined with maximum efficiency.
Tests conducted by the Western Australian School of Mines (WASM) have shown that high-tensile MINAX® mesh with a wire tensile strength of at least 1,770 N/mm2 is able to withstand substantially higher static and dynamic loads than conventional reinforcement nets. This also enables higher levels of rockburst energy to be absorbed.
