MineSAFE Compact Design Refuge Chamber
The MineSAFE Compact Design Refuge Chamber is designed specifically for tight mining confines, such as single-entry development headings. This small, compact, ultra-portable emergency refuge chamber is easy to manoeuvre and position around underground mine sites.
The Compact Design (CD) is designed for optimum autonomy. The chamber’s ELVP (extra-low-voltage-portable) control system means it can sit stand-alone for extended periods without requiring connection to mains (mine) power.
MineSAFE Compact Design Refuge Chamber Overview
The MineSAFE Compact Design Refuge Chamber can be taken virtually anywhere, anytime; providing personnel with an emergency safe-refuge alternative in every part of the underground mine.
Personnel situated directly at the working face (e.g. drill operators) run the risk of being trapped behind a fire or other hazard further up the decline. The Compact Design rescue chamber has been engineered specifically for this type of scenario – providing a place of safe-refuge even in the most remote, inaccessible parts of the mine.
Standard configurations are available based on occupancy – from 4 to 8 people - however, the refuge chamber dimensions and rated occupancy can be custom-engineered to site specifications, without compromising on safety or performance. Special transport configurations include the addition of an IT Hitch or Scoop Frame.
