What is a Trench Box?

A trench box, sometimes referred to as a trench shield is built to act as a temporary earth retaining structure allowing excavation to have vertical or near vertical sides. This helps keep the excavation area much smaller and help minimise the potential for damage to utilities or other structures nearby. Ultimately trench boxes maximise ground workers safety by ensuring the trench they are in does not collapse in on them.
