MSP’s main product line includes:

  • The Rocbolt, a hydraulically set anchoring device, which once inserted into the rock and pressurised expands to create a locking effect.
  • Shredder bolt, an end anchored bolt that can be used with any capsule grout or resin. This bolt can be installed mechanically or conventionally with unmatched loadbearing capacity.
  • Shredder I-Bolti is similar to the shredder bolt but has a lacing eye for secondary support.
  • MSP Hydro support unit prop, this prop can be used as a temporary or permanent support and can be removed and re- installed with ease. It has dynamic yielding capabilities to cater for seismicity.
