Bottom cutting edge - for 'push and dig' technique

Our Trench Boxes

Easy to assemble, this two-sided protective shield provides quick and efficient ground support in the installation of utility services. They're used when ground movement is non-critical and in areas where obstructions such as services are not present.

Combining articulated struts and a bottom cutting edge, our trench boxes are designed to be installed by an excavator, using the push and dig technique.

With a range of options from lightweight to high clearance Trench Boxes, we can facilitate most trenching requirements.
