Our special profiles for underground mining applications offer multiple benefits, such as simple installation, enhanced corrosion resistance, durability and outstanding strength. The range includes tophat shaft guides - high-quality, cost effective hoisting systems for use in shafts.
Our steel special profiles are used in underground and surface mining operations and include products made from wear-resistant steel. We produce profiles for mine infrastructure and a vast array of mining machinery and vehicles.
We have been working with the manufacturers of mining equipment for many years. We know that equipment must be carefully designed and built to meet exacting demands. Customers rely on our steel to deliver the performance they need.
Products and benefits
Our products include:
Tophat shaft guides
Our unique open section tophat shaft guides offer many benefits including:
Their properties, including close-dimensional control and straightness, mean less swing in the shaft and a smoother lift. Tophat shaft guides also facilitate faster hoisting speeds due to their stiffness and higher resistance to slamming forces. As a result, they generally last for the life of the mine. Our corrosion-resistant shaft guide products also deliver outstanding strength.

Shaft guides are available in lengths from 6 to 17 metres, with a cutting tolerance of +100/-0mm.
Cold sawn lengths are also available to suit individual requirements, with a +0/-2mm cutting tolerance.
