Overhead Protection Systems (OPS)

OPS are without a doubt, the safest, most efficient and cost effective form of overhead protection for personnel and infrastructure available today. These inflatable solutions can be installed and commissioned in under an hour – OPS will save you time.

Our OPS are installed before personnel enter an open space, mitigating the risk of objects falling into work areas. The OPS can also be safely monitored via our Auto Alarm Systems, further increasing the safety of personnel working in the vicinity.

Specifically designed to suit onsite requirements, in the following situations:

  • Ore passes
  • Ore bins
  • Shafts
  • Crusher Bowls
  • Crusher Pockets
  • Chutes
  • Refractory
  • Roasters
  • Furnaces
  • Kilns
  • Calciners
  • Any vessel, restricted or confined space where there is a risk of debris falling onto personnel, plant, equipment or controlled areas.

OPS are designed to apply pressure/force to all surfaces contacted. This pressure prevents objects from dislodging or falling.

Compared with existing alternatives such as rigid scaffolding/pentice and nets, our OPS improve safety and increase productivity by reducing installation time and actually preventing objects from dislodging/falling.
