Why UltraShore Trench Boxes?
When asked, “Why should I use UltraShore trench boxes?” the answer is simple: so everyone goes home at night. But, simple doesn’t always make it easy. The truth is, every time a trench is opened, the risks multiply.
With underground utilities, unstable soil, flowing water, hazardous vibrations, and adjacent loads, the risks multiply so much that the federal government has mandated that after a depth of five feet, a protective system must be put in place.
UltraShore trench boxes are, by far, the simplest and easiest protective system.
After 18 years in the shoring industry, the stories always seem to have similar beginnings: “I was in a cave-in once.” In fact, during my talks on excavation safety, I commonly ask, “Of the workers here, the men in the trenches, how many have been in a cave-in?” It’s always around 30%.
When selecting a trench box, there are many things to keep in mind, such as transport, assembly time, weight, depth rating, and pipe clearance. And always keep in mind you will never find one box that will work for every excavation, which is why we carry both heavy and lightweight trench box options ranging from 160 to 12,000 lbs.
