Lightweight Trench Box Hire

The ultimate safety device for site. When it comes to securely digging out trenches you need shoring to ensure that the trench walls do not collapse. Trench boxes ensure that the trench remains structurally sound so construction can continue safely.

Overview

Need additional information on the legislation of structural stability during excavations? visit the HSE Website.

A light weight trench box is designed as a temporary earth retaining structure allowing the sides of the excavation to be cut vertical or near vertical. This quick and easy method ensures ground stability within a trench and helps to minimise the excavation area. Trench Boxes also avoid damage to neighbouring structures and utilities in the ground.

Trench boxes are simple, robust, two sided mechanical trench support systems. Depending on the size of the excavation trench boxes are hired in batches by our customers.
