Where trench shields are used to protect workers against cave-ins, hydraulic shores are used to actually apply pressure to trench walls to prevent cave-ins. Efficiency Production, Inc. has been manufacturing aluminum hydraulic shores since 1971, including the manufacture of all rails, cylinders and components.
Strong enough to keep trench workers safe from injuries or unstable soil, yet lightweight for easy transportation and assembly, aluminum trench boxes, are ideal for smaller jobs in place of steel trench boxes. Also known as trench shields, aluminum trench boxes are engineered to offer the protection and security for excavation that steel trench boxes provide, but are less than half of the weight.
During an excavation, it’s important to keep your site and your crew safe, especially when working with poor soil conditions. Slide Rail Systems are a cost effective solution when you need to support trenches or pits at your excavation site.
