50 • ROCK products • November 2018 www.rockproducts.com EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY DRILLING & BLASTING Through extensive research and development, Best Blasting Mats man- ufactures three styles of blasting mats from recycled passenger and light truck (PLT) or medium truck (MT) tires. Traditional woven blasting mats: •  Time proven, very flexible and economical. •  Constructed of whole used PLT tire segments. •  Tightly woven together under compression using ¾-in., quality heavy-duty steel wire rope fastened together with heavy-duty, ¾-in. forged clamps and 3/8-in. flat bar end plates. •  Mats are 1 ft. thick and available in numerous widths and lengths. •  Large 12-in. OD lifting ring on each end. • Weight is 35 lb. per sq. ft. LT mats (flat PLT tread construction): • Same design and durability as Ultra- mat, but 8 lb. per sq. ft. lighter. • Constructed of fresh, used light truck (LT) tire treads. • Tightly secured together under com- pression using new ¾-in., heavy-duty steel wire rope fastened together with heavy-duty, ¾-in. forged clamps and 3/8-in. steel end plates. •  Large 12-in. OD lifting ring on each end. •  Mats are 8 in. thick and available in numerous widths and lengths. • Weight is approx. 42 lb. per sq. ft., i.e. 10- x 15-ft. mat = 5,700 lb. •  Excellent blast cover over uneven ground, large construction projects – highway, pipelines, quarries, open pit mining. •  Can also used for temporary road mats in rugged terrain, unstable ground and sensitive environment landscapes. Ultra mats (flat MT tread construction): •  Constructed of fresh, used semi-truck (MT) tire treads. • Tightly secured together under com- pression using new ¾-in. heavy-duty steel wire rope, fastened together with heavy-duty, ¾-in. forged clamps and 3/8-in. steel end plates. •  Large 12-in. OD lifting ring on each end. • Mats are 10 in. thick and available in numerous widths and lengths. • Weight is approx. 50 lb. per sq. ft., i.e. 10- x 15-ft. mat = 7,500 lb. •  Excellent blast cover over uneven ground, large construction projects – highway, pipelines, quarries, open pit mining. • Can also be used for temporary road mats for large mobile forestry, oil or mining equipment operating in rugged terrain, unstable ground and sensitive environment landscapes. Best Blasting Mats, www.bestblastingmats.com Part of the Trimble Connected Site portfolio, DPS900 is an integrated solu- tion that brings the office and the field together to give you less rework, more productivity, and best of all – more profitability. According to the company, in 30 min- utes they'll be drilling more accurately and in less time than ever before. And if you've got new operators on the crew, DPS900 can help them perform at the skill level of a more experienced oper- ator in no time at all. "We engineered the system for drilling and piling operations," the company said. "With large icons, a streamlined workflow and a screen that's easy to read, even in bright sunlight, DPS900 was designed for the construction environment." Trimble said the DPS900 can pay for itself in just four months by: •  Drilling exactly to the depth you need. Reduced overdrilling means your machine drill bits and hammers won't wear out as fast. •  Drilling angles and holes that are evenly spaced. An even pattern of blasting delivers better surfaces and improves rock fragmentation to min- imize hauling expense. •  Increasing safety. With DPS900 the operator can see machine blind spots and receive a warning when working where they shouldn't be. In addition, you don't need surveyors or other staff around working machines. •  Reducing survey personnel and stakes, especially for incline drill- ing. Stop pounding stakes and start making more money. DPS900 helps increase the safety, accu- racy and efficiency of drilling and piling operations under almost any condi- tions, according to the company.
