Refuge Chamber Transportation Upgrades
MineARC Systems refuge chamber transportation upgrades assist in the maneuverability of refuge chambers and safe havens around site. Refuge chamber transportation options include a Scoop (or 'Bogger') Frame and an IT Hitch.
MineSAFE Compact Design Chambers can be upgraded to include a ‘scoop’ or ‘bogger’ frame, designed to enable easy transportation via an integrated tool carrier or front-end loader. Available only for 4 and 6 person chamber models due to weight restrictions, the scoop frame adds another element of maneuverability to the portable design.
The scoop frame adds an additional 510mm (20″) to the height of the Compact Design refuge chamber, with a step height of 358mm (14″).
MineSAFE Compact Design Chambers can be upgraded to include an IT hitch, enabling easy lifting by an integrated tool carrier. Available only for 4 and 6 person chamber models due to weight restrictions, the hitch adds another element of maneuverability to the portable design.
Additional structural reinforcements to the refuge chamber are included as part of the IT Hitch upgrade.
The Wheel & Tow Kit is a retrofit upgrade enabling the chambers to be easily towed around site and manoeuvred into position, without the need for dragging along the ground or use of lifting machinery. The Wheel & Tow Kit is a simple and cost effective way to convert a unit into a portable refuge chamber. Once the Wheel & Tow Kit is installed, it can remain on the chamber without compromising the operation or use of the chamber.
For small chambers, the Wheel & Tow Kit incorporates a standalone trailer with integrated platform, of which the chamber is loaded onto. For larger chambers, the Wheel & Tow Kit includes a Dolly Pair, and Tow Platform. All systems are bolt on upgrades, and include integrated steps, levelling stands, and wheel chocks as standard. Brakes are available as an optional upgrade.
