Want to Increase Trench Safety? Look into Aluminum Hydraulic Shoring Systems

When it comes to trench safety, there are a couple ways to attain it, including trench boxes, buildable boxes, and aluminum hydraulic shoring systems. And, while many people are familiar with trench boxes, not quite as many have learned the benefits of hydraulic shores. Around for over forty years, hydraulic shores are a proven solution and – most importantly – one that provides a lot of versatility. From municipal work to plumbing, hydraulic vertical shores are a faster, more flexible, and – often – more cost-effective solution. In today’s post, we’re going to take a closer look at how these products work and why you should consider them.

How they work

Where trench boxes are designed to control collapses, aluminum hydraulic shoring systems work a little differently. Designed to prevent collapses, they compress the trench’s soil, containing it and allowing it to hold its shape. Smaller and more transportable than trench boxes, their simple design ensures that they are easy to transport, easy to set up, and – most importantly – extremely effective.

Assembly and setup

But, what about the setup? With a starter set consisting of two shores, a pump can, a release tool, and a release hook, shoring systems range in price from $1550 to $2400. Much more cost-efficient than other solutions, they’re also more efficient in the field. With minimal steps in the installation process, it’s very easy to pull up to the job site, grab the shores from your truck’s bed, and get them installed quickly.
