Find out More About Our High-Quality Aluminum Hydraulic Shoring Systems

If you’re considering transitioning your operation away from traditional trench boxes and toward an aluminum hydraulic shoring system, you likely have a whole host of questions. Are they easy to assemble? How long have they been around? What do I stand to gain by switching? At Hydraulic Vertical Shores, we know that the answers to these questions can make your decision-making process a whole lot easier. In light of that, we’re going to take the time this week to address some of the common questions that we receive about our shoring systems.

What are the benefits?

The most common question that we receive concerns the benefits of aluminum hydraulic shoring systems. Offering a host of advantages over trench boxes, hydraulic shores are lightweight, cost-effective, and versatile. Best of all, they can be loaded, moved, and installed by a single person, making them extremely easy to transport from site to site.

How do they differ from trench boxes?

Essentially, trench boxes are a protective measure and vertical shores are a preventative measure. Where a trench box works to contain the damage caused by a trench collapse, vertical shores aim to prevent the collapse from occurring in the first place.

How long have they been around?

Hydraulic shores have been in use for roughly forty years and utilized in countless projects by countless contractors. Quickly becoming a preferred safety solution, they are poised to eclipse trench boxes as the industry’s preferred trench safety equipment.

At Hydraulic Vertical Shores, our goal is to provide our customers with the information and guidance that they need to make informed decisions about their workers’ safety. Whether you’re a general contractor, a plumber, or anything in between, you can be confident that our team can help you find the right safety equipment for you!
