Mine door provides a safe, comfortable working environment


When South Africa’s largest iron ore mine started a project to service hauling trucks, it needed safe, reliable, rugged doors for its repair facility. The answer was vertical lifting fabric doors from ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems.

Sishen Mine's "Life of Mine" project involved building facilities to repair and maintain their "Huge Monsters" as they call their hauling trucks. Like many mining environments, the door solution had to handle extremely high temperatures and high wind speeds that create significant amount of airborne dust. It also needed very good sealing qualities.

Other requirements were that they are reliable, and need minimum maintenance. They should be safe, easy to operate and help keep a clean environment.

Through our authorized distributor Maxiflex, Sishen Mine bought ASSA ABLOY vertical-lifting fabric mine doors in the sizes 16 x 12,960mm x 10,195mm, and 1 x 12,960mm W x 6,766mm.

Increasing safety, decreasing costs

The vertical-lifting mine doors are robust and rugged enough to handle the extreme conditions of the mine, keeping downtime to a minimum. They provide a safe and comfortable working environment, keeping critical components dust free, insuring better repair and installation of components to haul trucks. They reduce overall breakdown turnaround time.
