The CAN®

Product Description
The CAN® is a secondary roof support made from a “yieldable confined core” of cementacious 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.
