APPLICATIONS

  • Abutments

    Smart mining industry sector professionals specify our cost-effective Vist-A-Wall Wire Walls or Bolt-A-Bin Walls for their on-site abutments.

  • Bridges

    Fast and easy, our Prefabricated Bridges come in a variety of widths and spans to handle heavy mining industry sector vehicles. Ideal for permanent or temporary applications, they ship and install quickly and are even redeployable.

  • Conveyor Tunnels and Overcasts

    According to the required size and specifications, overcasts and conveyor tunnels can be made from various shape profiles in Bolt-A-Plate or Corrugated Steel Pipe.

  • Crusher Walls and Ramps

    Perfect for remote locations with available fill material, these structures are easily created without concrete using our Vist-A-Wall Wire Walls. They are also great for headwalls and other mine site infrastructure applications.

  • Culverts

    Specify Bolt-A-Plate for larger and mid-size applications and Corrugated Steel Pipe for smaller ones. Dur•A•Span is ideal for highly-corrosive environments.

  • Drainage, Ventilation and Utilidor Systems

    We offer a full range of Galvanized, Aluminized Type 2 or Polymer-Laminated Corrugated Steel Pipe for virtually any mine site infrastructure requirement.

  • Fish Passages

    Our integrated fish baffle inserts, open-bottom culvert designs and prefabricated bridges are all effective solutions to preserve habitat in the mining industry sector.

  • Geotextile Reinforced Soil (GRS) Bridges

    GRS Bridges use steel anchor rods the arch to the backfill/geotextile composite and transfer the loads into it. This innovation brings a wide array of benefits to the mine industry sector.

  • Ground Support Structures

    THE EDGE Four-Flange Connection added to Super•Cor provides a safe and cost-effective solution for ground support in hazardous areas. Structures can be built entirely from the inside and moved into unsupported ground areas.

  • Haul Road Crossings

    With their light weight and superior strength, our structural steel plate products are a natural choice for haul road arches in the mine industry sector. They are available in many shapes and sizes, including bottomless, fish-friendly arches.

  • Mine Shafts, Vent Raises and Escape Ways

    THE EDGE Four-Flange Connection is perfect for creating underground structures such as these. It is faster and more economical than continuous smooth steel or concrete alternatives.

  • Portals and Canopies

    Specify Ultra•Cor for larger scale applications and Bolt-A-Plate for mid-size ones. Both offer a wide variety of shapes and sizes to suit virtually any site or mine industry sector vehicle requirement.

  • Protection Structures

    Provide a protective barrier from overhead debris while also safeguarding your bottom-line. Specify Super•Cor for larger applications and Bolt-A-Plate for mid-size ones.

  • Road or Rail Underpasses

    AIL’s mine site infrastructure underpasses are virtually maintenance-free with leading design service life expectancies. We can help you limit or eliminate critical traffic interruptions and site impacts.

  • Safety Barriers

    According to the needs of the site and safety regulations of your mine site infrastructure application, we can provide our galvanized Guiderail System or Gabion Basket System.

  • Sound Barrier Walls

    When dealing with ambient energy or mining industry sector noise, AIL Sound Walls provide optimum performance and maximum noise reduction at a lower installed cost.

  • Stockpile and Escape Tunnels

    Depending on the planned pile height and dead load, Ultra•Cor or Super•Cor, and Bolt-A-Plate offer excellent strength and cost savings over other methods.

  • Water and Wetland Crossings

    According on the size and nature of the crossing, we offer a variety of solutions in structural plate. Open-bottom designs and our Prefabricated Bridges are effective solutions to preserve natural habitat.

  • Wildlife Crossings

    Put our expertise in the design of effective wildlife crossings to work for your mine site application, with engineered solutions made from Super•Cor or Bolt-A-Plate.
