Trench Sheeting

Shore Hire’s overlapping steel trench sheets are a highly useful component in a variety of shoring and excavation systems. Our trench sheets have been designed for quick and easy installation and extraction and we can supply profiles and lengths to suit any application, including engineered trench sheet solutions. Our sheets are fully compatible with the full range of Shore Hire shoring systems such as trench boxes and hydraulic bracing systems.


Shore Hire’s SHS-330 trench sheet (3.5mm steel) is a light duty sheet that can easily be handled and installed, while the SHS-400 (6mm steel) is ideally used for larger excavations and in longer lengths, enabling the use of fewer frames and providing a clearer work area.


A full range of handling and driving accessories are available including drive caps, quick release shackles and trench sheet extractors.

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.
