Both Hydrabolts and X-Pandabolts can be provided in the form of an RS-Bolt, which is a modified bolt where the tip of the bolt is bent at 45º, a specified distance from the end of the bolt. This allows the bolt to be installed in areas where the stoping height is less than the total length of the RS-Bolt. The RS-Bolt is installed by pushing the tip of the RS-Bolt into the hole up to the bend, straightening the RS‑Bolt and the pushing it up the hole completely. Once in the hole the RS-Bolt is inflated in exactly the same fashion as a Hydrabolt or X-Pandabolt.
All of New Concept Mining’s Inflatable Bolts can be offered with Thermal Zinc Diffusion for improved corrosion protection if required.
