Why Andromeda Blasting mats are used:
Being made from disused materials with minimum embodied (recycling) energy, they provide good value and durability under normal conditions.
Standard Andromeda Blasting Mats:
Size = 2000 mm x 1500 mm x 38 mm = 90 Kg
Size = 3000 mm x 3000 mm x 38 mm = 300 Kg
Size = 6000 mm x 3000 mm x 38 mm = 630 Kg
A pile of Standard Andromeda Blasting mats ready for delivery to a major construction site in Queensland.
These are our standard format mat, designed for lifting by two men, and fitted with 4 lifting beckets for easy handling.
Note that these mats have a rolled rubber edge and are assembled with our specially developed steel eyelet system. These eyelets provide a series of 16 mm steel-lined holes through the mat and can be utilized for handling, joining or anchoring purposes.
Detail of the edge fixing system of Andromeda Blasting Mats
This picture shows the use of the specially developed type of eyelet system used on all the standard mats. It all looks so simple, but is the result of a concerted research project # 035 in 1994. The work included the invention, design and construction of the hydraulic crimping tools, which were manufactured in our Engineering Shop. It also shows the rolled rubber edges, which make these mats very neat and secure. The mats can be hung vertically to protect wiring, pipes and machinery in under ground tunnels
They are easily lifted and placed into position with strong 13mm slings either end. The mats are a cheap form of insurance when you are blasting in built up or sensitive areas. I would recommend their use when blasting.
