Capital Safety recently introduced two new DBI-SALA Saflok fall protection anchors for underground mine personnel protection: The Saflok hybrid mining bolt swivel anchor and the Saflok mining bolt anchor with swiveling O-ring. Both products are removable, simple to employ and multidirectional, giving them the ability to work on horizontal, vertical and overhead surfaces.
The hybrid mining bolt swivel anchor, which has a 22.2-kN maximum capacity, is a semi-permanent solution designed exclusively for insertion within a 47-mm friction rock bolt. By rotating the bolt, the user can expand or retract the two wedges to secure or remove the anchor from the friction rock bolt. The swivel anchor also features a swivel ring anchorage connection point for ease of use and mobility in various applications. The mining bolt anchor with swiveling O-ring, also capable of supporting 22.2 kN, is a portable friction rock bolt anchorage connector that inserts directly inside a 47-mm friction rock bolt. The anchor features a spring-tensioned trigger and two retractor cables that allow for immediate removal and relocation to another hole.
