Jaylon Supplies & Installs Dust Cover Tarpaulins in Mt Isa

Jaylon is one of Australia’s leading fabricators of tarpaulins for a diverse range of applications. The photographs (below) show customised heavy-duty tarpaulins supplied and installed for dust suppression at Glencore’s copper mine site in Mt Isa.

Jaylon supplied 7 dust suppression covers for this project that were 90m long and 20m wide. Jaylon designed the fabrication of the tarpaulins so they could be unrolled on the top of the stack with an excavator and then pulled down the slopes with attached ropes. The top of the liner was ballasted with one tonne planter bags lifted by the excavator. Trafficking on the stacks was not allowed.

These dust suppression covers were needed as the railway line from Mt Isa to Townsville was closed due to excessive rain, resulting in the stockpiled ore creating dust across the townsite.

Other Jaylon tarpaulin applications include conveyor covers, dome shelter covers, chicken curtains, truck tarpaulins, emergency services tarpaulins and general purpose tarpaulins for a multitude of other applications.

Jaylon Leads Tarpaulin Recycling Initiatives

In conjunction with major customers and research organisations, Jaylon is an industry leader in recycling initiatives for tarpaulins which have reached the end of their service life. This includes used tarpaulins and ground sheeting used by the grain industry.

This photograph shows an area of high quality asphalt paving recently laid in Jaylon’s yard. The cold-mix asphalt being laid includes a ‘biochar’ additive produced from end of life grain cover tarpaulins.

These PVC, polyproplylene, or polyethelyne tarpaulins would previously have been sent to landfills or shipped offshore.
