Where trench shields are used to protect workers against cave-ins, hydraulic shores are used to actually apply pressure to trench walls to prevent cave-ins. Our exclusive vendor, Efficiency Production, Inc. has been manufacturing aluminum hydraulic shores since 1971. Vertical shores consist of a pair of strong eight-inch aluminum rails that care connected by hydraulic cylinders. The hydraulic cylinders are pressurized outside of the trench with an easy to use hand-pump. Both the rails and cylinders come in various lengths, offering superior versatility when working around existing utilities and supporting trench wall near structures.
- Two 8 in. wide rails ranging in size from 1.5 ft. to 16 ft. tall
- Oversleeve to protect cylinder
- Fittings & hose
- Cylinder pads and socket pads
- Swivel fitting protector
