Learn Your Soils for Using an UltraShore Trench Box

When you are digging in the ground, you may be wondering at what point it is necessary to use our UltraShore trench box, and Allen Trench has the knowledge to help. If it’s your first time digging in the ground, you need to stay aware of the type of soil you’re digging into, and the implications with each. With safety standards and requirements, you can keep workers safe in the right conditions, all with a proper trench box.

Soil classification

If you are working in the ground, soil classification is a big factor in how deep you can dig safely and what equipment can keep workers safe. Stable rock can be excavated with vertical sides and remain intact while exposed. Soil types A though C get progressively more and more loose, making them more dangerous to dig into without proper trenching equipment. Type C soil, primarily made of granular soils like gravel and sand, is the riskiest to dig into, but UltraShore trench boxes help to ensure a safe digging experience. Capable of being used to a depth of up to 12 feet even in class C soils, there’s no better in the business than UltraShore from Allen Trench Safety.
