Many mines store the mined product, waste product or even subsidiary product in stock piles. Wind can be hazardous to these stock piles. Products such as coal dust and sulphur dust can be the reason for huge clean-up costs, environmental shut downs and neighbour complaints. Wind is the cause of many of these issues and ultimately results in loss of product and profit.
Wind & Sun Protection offers wind fences that drastically reduce the effects of wind on stock piles and job sites. Our free-standing wind fences have been installed at various mine sites and train loading areas with great results and satisfaction. They have been installed both surrounding stock piles as well as on location where trucks are loading and unloading material.
