PAC Brackets in Mining

Mining and Pac Brackets

The proven versatility and strength of PAC Brackets makes them ideal for use in the mining sector. Whether underground or above ground, the need to safely secure tools and equipment is extremely important in these dangerous environments.

The range of PAC Brackets ensures that almost all tool and equipment stowage needs are met so whether it’s on above ground trucks, draglines, dredges and service vehicles or underground transport vehicles, mining vehicles, maintenance rooms or cribs, PAC Brackets have a stowage solution available.

PAC Brackets are manufactured from glass fibre filled polyurethane with stainless steel locking pins so are non corrosive. No aluminium is used in the main bracket construction so they are also fine for use in underground coal mines.

The use of brightly coloured yellow lock straps also helps to identify the location of the brackets in low light or dusty conditions.

Stowage of long handled tools such as shovels and brooms, cylinders such as fire extinguishers and breathing apparatus spares and stowage of small tools onto tool boards are just some examples of where PAC Brackets can be used.

The more popular types of brackets in use are: -

  1. Hooklok - a friction type locking device used to lock poles & long handled tools into place.

  2. Flexmount – a friction type locking device to clamp round items too large for the Hooklok.

  3. Handlelok – a positive locking device and our most popular selling bracket.

  4. Adjustamount – a positive locking bracket in both a standard and long strap version that adjusts to the width of the item being stowed. This bracket is also available as the ‘Super Adjustamount’, which allows for taller sided items.

  5. Jumbo Handlelok – the large version of the Handlelok and popular for stowage of fire main stand-pipes.
