Escape Tube System

A safer, more versatile and cost effective alternative to conventional underground ladderways.

Installed in a 1.5M raise bored hole, the rise is inclined between 68D and 72D for safe climbing. Casing may be grouted or backfilled depending on ground conditions, ground water inflow and acidity. No restrictions apply to the rise length.

  • Mines Dept Approved
  • Eliminates hand-rising
  • Low Maintenance
  • Rapid Evacuation
  • Carries all services
  • Ventilation Control

The system is designed to carry all air, electrical, telephone and water services for mining development, self closing trapdoors restrict fall hazards.

Cost savings of ETS arise from faster and safer installation, and low ongoing maintenance costs. Major savings are realised when compared against cost of laying in services via declines.
