The ROCPROP MK1 is an MSP innovation that was originally designed for deep level gold mines for use in tubular ore bodies with mining widths of up to 6m. Available in 20 and 40 ton it is an all-steel elongated support system with predictable and repeated performance thereby catering for static and dynamic load conditions and ensuring availability of the excavation for its life span.

Under static load conditions it sustains constant load-bearing characteristics during blasting and maintains the integrity of the hanging roof during closure. In both static conditions and in seismically active mines it provides a constant resistance to keep loose blocks in place.

  • Lightweight
  • Easy to install
  • Colour coded to identify ranges
  • Dynamic yielding capability
  • No creep under static conditions
  • Consistent loading therefore no uneven loading on hanging wall
