Trench shields are essential equipment for keeping workers safe on trenching projects. At Stowers Cat, we have trench shields for rent that meet the highest standards for quality and safety.
What Is a Trench Shield?
A trench shield is a steel or aluminum structure that protects workers from cave-ins. It has two heavy-duty sidewalls of varying thickness that are connected by steel or aluminum spreaders. Trench shields are available in numerous heights and depths that suit different soil conditions and volume requirements. They are also easily adjustable to fit the size of your trench.
Trench shields provide reliable ground support for trenches, giving you more control over the site's security. They are also ideal for the rapid shoring of trench runs.
Trenches and Stand-Up Time
Trenches have what's known as stand-up time, which is the amount of time between when the trench is dug and when its walls begin to collapse. Depending on depth, soil, weather conditions and trench activity, trench stand-up times can be anywhere from a few minutes to a few months. Trench shields protect workers inside the trench, eliminating guesswork about stand-up time so work can be done safely for as long as it takes to complete the job.
Benefits of Trench Shoring Equipment Rentals for Your Business
When you rent trench shields and other shoring equipment for your business, you have the flexibility to find the perfect solution for your specific job requirements, increasing your efficiency and productivity.
Renting can also save your company money and help you manage your funds effectively. Rental payments are typically made at a fixed rate over a certain period. With this payment structure, you avoid large upfront costs, freeing up capital for you to invest in other areas of your business. Renting also eliminates repair and maintenance costs, which helps increase your profitability.
If you only need to rent a trench shield for a one-off job or want to try one out before you buy it, renting is an excellent way to see if the equipment is the right fit for your business without significant financial obligation.
