What is Shaftbrace?

Shaftbrace is a strong, four-way hydraulic bracing system, giving very large clear working areas. Standard leg assemblies cover excavations from 1.8m to 12.2m sheet to sheet.

Why use Mabey’s Shaftbrace?

Shaftbrace is a flexible solution with bracing struts available to increase the lengths of the excavation.  Octagonal corner units are also available which enable 8-sided excavations to be constructed. It can be used in conjunction with our wide range of trench sheets and piling.
