Trench Shields / Boxes

The LITE guard Standard Trench Shields / Boxes are great for domestic plumbing and maintenance work. With just 6 parts plus 8 pins and clips per shield they are capable of being dismantled within minutes and carried into backyard or restricted access areas. You can then assemble right next to the excavation or excavator. They come equipped with multiple points to attach adjustable spreader bars and all panels have 4 built in lift points. When lifting we recommend you use a 4 leg lifting chain or double lifting straps.
