Our Aluminium Trench Shields

A lightweight, two-sided protective shield, ideal for use when installing utility pipes in areas where obstructions such as services are not present.

Its lightweight nature makes it the perfect solution for excavations undertaken with small excavators in good, dry, self-supporting ground.

High clearance struts are available for use in situations such as the installation of large diameter pipes or when working on under track crossings (UTX).
