Manuplex understands ventilation from the inside out. Our team literally work at the coal-face, so we go out of our way to ensure we have the best technology to protect our people and yours.

Our products are built by teams who actually work underground. This means we understand the installation of ventilation through our full lifecycle approach, so we design and manufacture our components in the most cost-effective way possible.



Our flagship product, the Manucan, is the strongest secondary roof support can in the global market. It’s twice as quick to install, and at just 50kg is a lightweight and long-lasting solution for roof support.

The Manucan is Australian designed, manufactured and installed, as well as compliant to ISO9001.
