Norsenet has supplied the mining industry for the last 25 years with cost effective RSS Grout Packs and has developed and supplies Yield Packs as a substitute for wooden packs. 

Norsenet (Pty) Ltd manufacturers an extensive range of safety nets and have found wide application in South African mines where they are generally used to protect personnel from falling rock in temporarily supported development ends & stopes, as part of permanent tunnel support systems, and to prevent personnel and equipment from falling down steep excavations. 

Many other applications have been considered by mining engineers since. As part of Norsenet’s product development and certification program, over 180 certified tests were carried out on mine safety nets at accredited institutions, including the SABS and the CSIR.

 Most test, however, were carried out at the industry-owned SIMRAC testing facility at the Savuka Mine; these test were done in collaboration with SRK Consulting, who was appointed by SIMRAC to conduct all tests at the facility. Norsenet are the market leaders in safety netting and as such are the sole suppliers to BHP Billiton’s Khutala Colliery where we are on contract for the supply of Roof & Sidewall nets.
