The latest addition to Brain’s industrial equipment product range, lets you know, at a glance, the working load limit on a rock bolt or threaded anchor.
Matt Burrows, Alfabs’ Kurri Kurri Branch Manager for Mining, easily installed the 6 tab Visyload washer in no time. The washer’s 6 tabs turned down 45 degrees as soon as the 8 tonnes load was achieved.
Brain Industries’ managing director, Gillian Summers, said when the Visyload tabs are fully deployed, they curl down. This indicates the applied tension or torque to confirm the rock bolt’s or anchor’s safe working load limit.
Gillian said Visyload will save mines, tunnel builders and operators, the construction sector and even emergency services’ organisations time and money. She said Visyload is manufactured in Australia and has been performance tested and accredited in a NATA certified laboratory. Read more about Visyload here.
“Thanks very much to Alfabs for allowing us to demonstrate and film the effectiveness of Visyload on their site,” Gillian said.
