The CAN®

OUR PRODUCTS / Fabrication & Distribution

The CAN® is a yieldable secondary roof support made from a confined core of cementitious composite, encased in a cylindrical steel canister, which resembles a can. The CAN handles mine floor heaving and roof sag better than any other type of support available today. The CAN is flexible in design in that it can be engineered to meet mine-specific load conditions regardless if the adverse conditions are induced by the roof or the floor. The simple 1 piece design of the CAN installs quickly using a mine scoop or similar piece of equipment. The smooth steel skin of the CAN improves ventilation and promotes air flow by reducing resistance in the mine entry. When installed correctly, The CAN has never failed.
