What is Micro-Shaving?
Micro-shaving is the process of removing manageable chunks of rock in a controlled manner.  Basically, a hole is drilled, cleaned, then loaded with 1-2 of our power loads.  The safety pad is centered over the hole and the held in place by the detonator firing pin.  After adequate safety measures have been taken, a couple of whacks with the hammer and BANG!  You have fractured the rock in several ways.

Who uses Micro-Shaving?
Our micro-shaving kits are used by Search and Rescue teams, Commercial Cave owners (for trail modification), Geologists, Excavators, Contractors, Sculptors and Caving expeditions. 
Is it safe to use & do I need a license?
When used properly, our micro-shaver is extremely safe.  The power loads are available from On Rope 1 and do not require a special license.

Safe, effective, controlled removal of rock can be in your hands!
