Learn the Benefits of Using an Aluminum Trench Box from Allen Safety

When it comes to using an aluminum trench box, there are countless benefits. Trench boxes provide a failsafe, ensuring that your employees stay safe and that work continues uninterrupted. They can improve “stand-up time,” which is the amount of time that the trench would remain stable without the assistance of trench boxes or vertical shores. This stand-up time can be unpredictable: as short as a few seconds or as long as the job lasts. Duration often depends on variables like trench depth, the amount of water in the soil, weather conditions, and the type of dirt surrounding the trench. With the inability to predict stand-up time, it’s essential that you take steps to fortify the trench and – more importantly – protect your workers from potential collapses. In today’s post, we’re going to look at a couple of the benefits of our trench boxes.

Improved safety

An aluminum trench box works to keep your employees safe. Trench jobs can be extremely dangerous if they’re performed without care, consideration, and the proper equipment. Trench boxes ensure that, in the event of a collapse, your employees are safe, contained, and well-protected inside the boundaries of the box.


On trench jobs, meeting local and national regulations is a must… and they exist for a reason! Over the years, regulations have been developed to ensure safety. Ignoring these regulations is a recipe for disaster that could lead to hefty fines or – worse yet – severe injury.
