ABS West is a regular supplier to the mining industry.  Below are some our most ‘in-demand’ products.

01 COMMERCIAL FLOORING

SUITABLE FOR WALLS & FLOORS

 

PERFECT FOR MINING ENVIRONMENTS!

everroll® flooring is difficult to beat as a solution for mine sites because it addresses so many critical factors associated with such a challenging environment.   Think about what’s important in mining environments when it comes to wall and floor surfaces: noise-levels, slip-factor, longevity, easy maintenance and cleaning (especially with hygiene requirements being raised to all new levels).

Flooring surfaces must often contend with dirty, abrasive residues in mine-sites meaning only certain floor types are suitable.  everroll® is a popular choice for mining applications because it addresses many associated challenges. The robust surface stands the test of time, even in high-traffic zones.

Critical Features – everroll®:

 

  • Tough
  • Anti-slip
  • Easy to clean,
  • Hygienic (can be pre-sealed)
  • Quiet underfoot
  • Withstands extreme weather conditions
  • Available in different ranges, colours and thicknesses
  • GECA certified
  • Can be cut to any shape or size
  • Can incorporate custom inlays
  • Long service life

APPLICATIONS

Suitable for Indoor Use:

  • Foyers
  • Offices
  • Dongas
  • Common areas
  • Stairways
  • Catering facilities
  • Recreational zones
  • Warehouses 

Suitable for Outdoor Use (full exposure):

  • Gangways
  • Ramps
  • Loading platforms
  • Decks
  • Transport termini
  • Many other mine-site locations that are fully exposed to external elements.


 

ALSO SUITABLE FOR WALLS

One of Australia’s largest mining companies recently installed everroll® on the walls of its mine-site dongas to help improve sleeping conditions. In this particular case, everroll® was successful in reducing noise levels from adjacent dongas.  

A POPULAR CHOICE

  • everroll® has also been used to provide anti-slip surfaces for walkways designed to connect mine-site buildings.
  • The floors of many transportable offices across Australia are lined with everroll®.
  • everroll® is regularly specified for accommodation in mine-site villages and recreational facilities.

    03 ACOUSTIC & VIBRATION CONTROL

    ACOUSTIC UNDERLAY & VIBRATION ISOLATION

     

    MINIMIZING DISTURBANCE IN A TURBULENT ENVIRONMENT!

    Acoustic Underlay
    Reducing impact sound is an important goal in an industry that relies so heavily on human resources, especially when work, rest and play happens in such close quarters. 

    REGUPOL acoustic underlay is one of the most widely recognized products in the fight against impact noise.  Many varieties and thicknesses are available to suit different applications and scenarios, which is why REGUPOL underlays have been used extensively for decades by various sectors worldwide, including mining.

    Vibration Isolation
    Another issue relevant to the mining industry is vibration associated with machinery or gym activities.  REGUFOAM is a product that can be used to isolate vibrations and their resulting impact on surrounding zones. Vibrations can spread secondary airborne sound, create discomfort, cause structural damage or even distort the function of machinery. 

    Critical Features – REGUPOL Acoustic Underlay (impact sound dampening):

     

    • Impact noise reduction
    • Easy to cut & install
    • Low emissions
    • Available in roll or tile format
    • Completely recyclable
    • Long service life

    Critical Features – REGUPOL & REGUFOAM (vibration isolation):

     

    • Available in two main ranges:
      1) mixed cell polyurethane foam
      2) rubber-polyurethane composite
    • Isolation effect can be adjusted to specific requirements
    • Designed to perform at a constantly high level over the long term.
    • Precisely definable tuning frequencies thanks to individual material thicknesses.

    APPLICATIONS

    Acoustic Underlay is Suitable for Installation under:

    • Resilient flooring
    • Tiles
    • Timber & Laminate
    • Carpet
    • Screed

    Vibration Isolation is suitable for:

    • Gyms
    • Machine foundations
    • Building foundations
    • Rail traffic systems


     

    PROTECTION OF HUMAN HEALTH & WELL-BEING

    Constant exposure to noise and vibration can have negative effects on the general well-being of humans.  Vibration can also damage the fabric of a building or its contents.  REGUPOL and REGUFOAM products have been deployed on many occasions to counter noise and vibration issues.

    04 TRANSPORTATION SAFETY PRODUCTS

    ANTI-SLIP CARGO MATTING TO KEEP MINING CARGO SECURE

     

    KEEPING TRANSPORTED GOODS SAFE WITH ANTI-SLIP CARGO MATS!

    Cargo transportation is fundamental to the success of the mining industry, with so many ancillary goods transported to and from mine-sites.   There exists a ‘chain of responsibility’ regarding safe cargo transportation in Australia.  All involved parties, including consignors and drivers, must ensure cargo doesn’t pose a safety risk to any users of the transport network.  

    One of the primary strategies to maintain the safety of transported goods is to limit movement.  Anti-slip surfaces play an important role in this context.

    REGUPOL cargo mats significantly reduce the chance of goods slipping while being transported by road, rail, sea or air. The mats are suitable for a whole range of cargo types and can withstand extreme environmental conditions.  

    Critical Features – REGUPOL Cargo Mats:

     

    • Anti-slip rubber fibres
    • Ideal for repeated use & long service life
    • Can halve the number of lashings required
    • Options suitable for up to 630 t/m2
    • Can handle palletised loads and cargo with sharp edges
    • Highly porous so can absorb moisture to maintain anti-slip performance
    • Can withstand extreme temperatures
    • Available in sheet or roll format
    • Options to avoid discolouration of stain-susceptible goods

    APPLICATIONS

    REGUPOL cargo mats are suitable for:

    • Trucks
    • Utes
    • Trains
    • Aircraft
    • Boats & ships

     


       

      A RANGE OF OPTIONS

      REGUPOL cargo mats are available in 3 main varieties meaning there are options to suit various load specifications and budgets. The least expensive mat can handle up to 250 t/m2, while the highest spec mat can handle up to 630 t/m2.

      WEBBING PROTECTORS

      • ABS West also supplies webbing protectors to protect tensioning belts. The protectors optimally adapt the belt to the loading edges.    They act as a buffer between the cargo and the lashing straps and play an important role in protecting breakable goods from damage.
