Little-known FSP products

When haul trucks unload their loads, the spillover often damages trucks. FSP’s patented Hungry Boards are designed to protect sideboards, headboards and rock deflectors on haul trucks.

Different sizes, angles and shapes allow them to fit on many different haul truck models. The solid rotationally moulded polyethylene construction means they are UV stable and rustproof, which eliminates weather worries without the need to worry about damaging the vehicle, increasing payloads are possible that leads to better productivity.

Cable Plug Terminal Protector

Rotationally moulded from polyethylene, FSP’s cable plug protector is a unique piece of safety gear that protects thousands of dollars worth of cable terminals. This specialised product aims to reduce terminal damage and protect against rock damage, high wall recovery and accidental damage during transport. The FSP cable plug protector saves money that would otherwise have to be spent on replacing expensive cables at the mine site.

Hole Savers

On the mining site after drilling holes for blasting, it is critical dirt and rock does not spill back into freshly drilled holes. That’s where the FSP hole savers come in. They are designed to keep holes clean and open, so the correct charge depth can be achieved. They come in a range of colours and sizes and are easily nestable for transport and space-saving needs.

FSP’s newest service in the Mackay branch is daily hiring of “Gas Alert” gas detectors. With a service level two certificate, John can service Honeywell Gas Detector products and supply a Service Level two certificate for Honeywell Gas Detector products.

Wheel Motor Covers

One of FSP’s most popular original products, the wheel motor cover was developed with extensive input from customers.

Designed to eliminate wear and tear on mining trucks wheel motors, the flexible nature of polyethylene means the cover reduces damage from rocks and tyre impact from other mining equipment, which results in prolonged service life of the customer’s equipment. The new and improved quick-release system has a convenient inspection window, making checks faster and easier than ever.

OL1800 Locker

The OL1800 locker model is well suited for mining worksites and fitted with a shelf and hanging rail for towels or clothing. The three-way door locking system ensures belongings are stored safely and securely using a padlock.

Graffiti, chewing gum or stickers can be removed without affecting the integrity of the locker. There are no jamming hinges and moving parts to maintain and there is a drainage hole at the base.

Top Products of 2018-19

Wheel Chocks, Ozchok

Ozchoks are one-piece constructions, moulded from polyethylene and injected with polyurethane, as a result, they are lightweight and UV resistant. The heavy-duty construction and HDPE material means Ozchoks are oil, corrosion and water resistant. High-density polyurethane foam is used to fill our chock to make them lightweight, and FSP uses 100 per cent virgin materials during wheel chock construction.

Fire Extinguisher Vehicle Bracket

Save money by protecting fire extinguishers on dry, dusty roads. FSP’s fire extinguisher vehicle bracket suits either 4.5kg to 9kg fire extinguisher models and protects from water, dust and corrosion.
