Meet the equipment: beams, trench sheets, props and manholes

Published on Dec 05, 2018

Over the next few months, we’ll take a look at some of the equipment that is most integral to our operations. This time we look at needle beams, trench sheets, titan props and manhole boxes:

Needle Beams

Needle Beams are used in propping and needling applications. Engineers often specify their use to spread loads whilst supporting slabs. All of our needle beams have been reinforced with additional stiffener plates and galvanised for protection.

Trench Sheets

Put up those walls. Trench sheets are used to make continuous overlapping walls during excavation and are used in conjunction with a variety of trench shoring systems including timber walers, aluminium walers and hydraulic bracing systems. Our trench sheets have been designed for quick and easy installation and extraction.

Titan Props

Titan props are a great choice of temporary propping system in awkward or limited access environments where very high load bearing combined with easy handling are paramount to the job. Our Titan Props can hold eight times the load for the same weight of its steel counterpart. Solid.

Shore SM Manhole Box

Shore Hire’s 3M-50 Manhole box is ideal for manhole construction & square excavations. Or for escaping the wife and kids. They allow rapid construction and installation of precast concrete manholes, interceptors, small chambers or tanks.
