Mining Consumables

CAB is a range of hangers designed specifically for underground mines. They provide a low cost method for the safe, secure and reusable installation system for cables, pipes, etc.

The extensive range ensures a hanger to suit your exact requirements should be available ex-stock. See the range of hangers below and load data for the various types of hanger.

CAB Straps


CAB Straps are heavy duty hangers designed to support pipes and cables from the roof of the mine. CAB strap hangers outperform others because grommet holes which can cause pull-out failure have been eliminated.

Improved design features sturdy offset hooks sewn into non-absorbent, rot resistant polypropylene webbing. Weight carrying capacity of hanger is higher since weight load is distributed evenly across entire width of webbing hooks.

Waste is also reduced with CAB straps because there are no loose “S” hooks to fall off and get lost. For extra heavy duty applications specify hangers with welded strap hooks.

CAB Bosserman Clips


CAB Bosserman Clips are high quality hangers designed for underground pipe and cable support.

The clips have gained wide attention and acceptance for their superior ability to safely suspend electrical cables and wiring in a variety of underground applications. This clip features 100% plastisol coated high carbon steel body and a locking arm to prevent pull out and slippage. CAB combined all the advantages of steel and plastic in this improved hanger.

Advantages of the Bosserman Clip:

  • Corrosion and rust problems are eliminated due to the heavy platisol coating overt he entire metal surface of the Bosserman Clip. This rust proofing protection will outlast other typical methods of rust proofing and will result in significant cost savings and improved safety.
  • Slippage of hangers on the messenger wire is virtually eliminated due to the slip resistance of the plastisol in the attachment section of the clip. Uniform spacing of the hangers without this slippage will keep wires more safely up and out of the way.
  • High dielectric grade plastisol applied on 100% of the hanger surface makes the Bosserman Clip totally insulated and spark resistant for maximum safety in the suspension of electric cables and wiring in all underground applications

CAB Lifeline – for safety


CAB products also include simple yet effective safety products, such as Lifelines, to ensure evacuation routes are clearly marked and capable of use in nil visibility.

The CAB Lifeline is an escape rope designed to help evacuate an underground mine in the event of a fire or explosion. Research by the U.S. Bureau of Mines has shown that the presence of a rope guide in dense smoke can improve the chances for a successful escape when a fire breaks out in an underground mine. The CAB Lifeline, with it’s sturdy directional cones, will help lead employees to the slope and shaft rather than getting lost or confused in an actual emergency situation. Each spool contains 300 metres of 6mm yellow polypropylene with directional indicators installed at 30 metre intervals. Corrosion resistant thimbles, oval sleeves and quick links are installed on each end for the quick and secure attachment of sections. Can be custom made to an individual mine specification.
