Standard Trench Shields

The standard LITE guard trench shield is our most popular unit. Standard trench shields come in a light weight single skin model or a double skin extruded panel. Meets AS 4744.1-2000 and BSEN 13331.1&.2

The single skin can be stacked three high and with legs will give you a depth of 4200mm. This trench shield can also be inverted on its end for small shafts. The panels have multiple location points for the spreader bars which come in two sizes. The Panels only weigh 55kgs and a complete unit weighs in at just 130kgs. The single skin panels have a variable WLL from 20kPa to 50kPa with the use of additional spreader bars. They are great as a maintenance unit which can be dismantled in minutes and carried into back yard or restricted access areas, even fits in the back of a UTE.

The single skin model is very popular with plumbers, drainers &  councils for domestic plumbing and maintenance work.

The double skin model can only be used horizontally and has a WLL of 30kPa.

Both models can come as small boxes 1200 x 1200 for small excavations for water or gas tapings.

The standard LITE guard trench shield is the shoring system developed for use with Mini excavators.

If you are looking for a unique size or shape to suit your particular needs we can customise both options to your requirements.
