Inflatible Headcovers and Barricades
The bulkhead forms around obstructions such as raise bore rods to provide protection from falling material, while servicing the cutters on a raise bore head at the raise base. Units are also used as headcovers in bins during chute repair operations.
This design is now in its 3rd generation and includes several major improvements.
The inflatable stopping panel is lightweight, easy to transport and install. The panel is ideal for blocking air flow in a stope or drift. It may also be installed as a long term closure in a section of the mine. A man door can also be incorporated to provide through access.
