Little-known FSP products.
Meet the Hungry Board
When haul trucks unload their loads, the spillover often damages the trucks. FSP’s patented Hungry Boards are designed to protect the sideboards, headboards and rock deflectors on a haul truck. The different sizes, angles and shapes allow them to fit many different haul truck models. The solid rotationally moulded polyethylene construction means they are UV stable and rustproof, which eliminates weather worries. Without the concerns of damaging the vehicle, increasing payloads are possible which will lead to better productivity.
Cable plug terminal protector
Rotationally moulded from polyethylene, our cable plug protector in a unique piece of safety gear that protects thousands of dollars worth of cable terminals. This specialised product aims to reduce terminal damage and protecting against rock damage, high wall recovery and accidental damage during transport. The FSP cable plug protector saves you money in replacing expensive cables on a mining site.
On your mining site after drilling holes for your blasting, its critical dirt and rock doesn’t spill back into the freshly drilled holes. That’s where our FSP hole savers come in.
They are designed to keep holes clean and open so that the correct charge depth can be achieved. They come in a range of colours and sizes and are easily nestable for transportation and space-saving concerns.

Wheel motor covers
One of FSP’s most popular original products, the wheel motor cover was developed with extensive input from our 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 by other mining equipment, which results in prolonging the service life of your equipment. The new and improved quick-release system has a convenient inspection window, thus making checks faster and easier than ever.
The OL1800 locker model is well suited for mining worksites and is fitted with a shelf and hanging rail for towels or clothing. The three-way door locking system ensures your belongings are safe and secure using a padlock. Constructed from polyethylene using a rotational moulding process means the locker will not dent or rust and 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 in the base.
