Installation of mesh during support installation can be very hazardous if people have to go under the non supported area during the installation process.
To mitigate this risk, Sandvik has developed the SH Screen handler on separate boom for large bolters.
The Screen Handler is a hydraulic telescopic boom specially designed for the mechanization of screen / wire mesh installation, along the hanging wall / back and / or side walls.
It is controlled by the operator from the drilling control panel.
This shortens the rock reinforcement cycle and optimizes the meshing support efficiency, because the mesh is directly pinned up with rock supporting bolts. In addition, the meshing job will be safely done from a comfortable safety cabin or canopy.
