Research & Development

Fero Strata has been developed as a business unit dedicated to continuous improvement. We work directly with our clients on site to deliver customised solutions for our clients.

The strong technical knowledge and experience of the Fero Strata team ensures we provide solutions, which are perfectly adapted to suit the specific mining and tunnelling conditions and requirements.

Fero’s 225 stabiliser plate is an example of a product that was purpose-developed as a cost-effective alternative to the duplex plate for one of our clients. The 225 stabiliser plate is now a staple of the Fero range.

Fero’s franklin plate is another purpose-designed product developed in-house. The franklin plate is a 4mm ribbed support plate that provides a high load capacity but is more cost-effective and stronger than the similar load-bearing capacity 8mm dome plate.

If you have a problem you need assistance with, think there is a better way of doing things or you have a ground support product that you would like to bring to the market, talk to our R&D team.
