Benefits of a Steel Trench Box for Rent

The most important feature of a steel trench box is the security and safety it offers workers. Due to factors like soil composition, dampness, trench depth and more, all trenches eventually cave in, which can cause injury or even death if workers are present.

Using a steel trench box will help keep workers safe and will give time to evacuate in the event of a cave-in. Other benefits and features of a steel trench box rental include:

  • Cost-effective: Renting provides long-term cost savings for short-term projects.
  • Enhanced stability: Trench boxes make the trench more stable and durable, providing employees with peace of mind so they can work with confidence.
  • Maximum durability: The strength of steel combined with a solid, welded construction results in a high level of durability, making steel trench boxes ideal for long jobs in adverse environments.
  • Versatile: Steel trench boxes can handle many varieties of ground composition as well as any stressors that the area may be subject to.
  • Added features: Some models feature shelving built into the walls for tool storage.
  • Exceeds standards: Our steel trench box options exceed government safety standards.
