Specialist Advice and Engineering
Lite Guard can arrange engineered designs to suit your special applications, using either the Lite Guard extruded aluminium sections that have the same tensile strength as steel, or a combination of aluminium and steel.
The Lite Guard aluminium extrusions are approximately a third of the weight of steel, making Lite Guard a more user friendly shoring system.
Lite Guard can provide expert advice on most shoring problems and are happy to work with design engineers at the early design stages of projects to develop shoring systems specific to the project.
Designing systems at the early stages saves time and money on site and these designs can then be built into the tender process.

Active Earth Pressure Graphs
LITE guard has produced some graphs to use as a guide to active earth pressure in various soil types.
NOTE: This information is supplied only as a guide, if you need accurate soil pressure you need to hava a soil test done by a Geotechnical Engineering, soil testing company.
