Mandalay resources and StarWest drilling using QuikWall
Conducting exploration drilling within hundreds of metres of neighbouring homes means that Victorian mining company, Mandalay Resources and its contractor Star West Drilling, are constantly searching for effective ways to minimise noise and reduce the impact on nearby residents.
The company tried traditional noise abatement solutions used in the mining sector, including shipping containers. However they were costly, hard to erect, difficult to relocate and didn’t provide the necessary height required to be truly effective.
QuikWall – a contemporary, innovative temporary walling alternative produced by Australian company ModularWalls. Eight units were installed around the project site within just two days and operations resumed with minimal disturbance.
QuikWall is a reusable, relocatable precision engineered temporary wall, with an extendable height of up to 4.4 metres. Used by Australia’s leading mining and construction companies, QuikWall’s innovative, patented design allows for compact transportation in large volumes and swift modular installation for maximum results. Not only is QuikWall ideal for drilling operations, moving platforms and short term noise containment, it’s equally robust and durable for longer term projects.
The QuikWall system makes environmental and economic sense. It leaves no foundations in the ground and can be continuously reused and relocated. QuikWall is the perfect solution for sites that need to be left completely undisturbed.
The effectiveness of the QuikWall system has been recognised nationally, with ModularWalls winning the Australian Steel Innovation award for QuikWall in early 2013.
