Aluminum Trench Box for Rent

At NMC The Cat Rental Store, we have high-quality rental trenching safety equipment that is ideal for construction, mining and other industrial applications.

Benefits of Trench Box Rental

The main advantage of a trench box is worker safety. Nearly all trenches cave in eventually — when the cave-in happens depends on factors like the depth of the trench, soil composition, dampness and how long the trench has been there. Cave-ins can cause injury and, in some cases, even death, so worker protection is a top priority on any job site using trenches.

When a trench box is present, workers will have time to evacuate in the event of a cave-in, as the box will act as a shield that retains the trench walls and keeps them safe. Other benefits and features of aluminum trench box rental include:

  • Lightweight: Aluminum trench boxes are half the weight of steel trench boxes, making them easier to place and maneuver on light-duty jobs.
  • Easy to install: Lightweight, simple and durable construction makes aluminum trench boxes quick and easy to install, without the need for a large crew.
  • Cost-effective: Aluminum is a cost-effective material option, and renting will provide long-term savings for any short-term project.
  • Stability: Trench boxes make a trench more stable and durable. When we deliver and install your trench box, we will make sure it is correctly fitted to give your workers more control over the security of the trench.
  • Versatile: A sturdy box can cope with any type of ground composition and stress put on the ground.
  • Adjustable: Modular and pinned struts make for easy adjustment when needed.
