Shore 6m Trench Box

Shore Hire’s 6M trench box is engineered from heavy-duty steel and provides high clearance for large scale excavations.


This range of trench boxes guarantees you heavy duty performance in demanding conditions, with safe and effective shoring at any depth provided the working load limit of 40kPa is not exceeded. The 150mm foam filled walls are designed to meet the special needs of large pipe installation, boring pits, pump stations or projects where long pipes are being laid.


Despite being a heavy-duty system the 6m trench box provides significant flexibility. Depths can be increased by adding a 1.5m top extension unit. The 6M Trench Box also allows the use of Shore Hire’s high clearance arch spreader system, which gives the advantage of greater clearance under the lower strut, for the installation of large diameter pipes and culverts.


Shore Hire’s trench boxes have been used in a variety of projects including Tullamarine, Padstow and Penrith
