Inflatable Shoring System

The safety of personnel should be at the forefront of constructors minds.

When an excavation takes place, personnel and equipment are at risk of being buried.

Commonly aluminium or steel panels are adopted to support the sides of the trenches. These can be heavy and difficult to work with, as they are hard to transport and cannot always be reused.

A new method has been developed to offset these trench support problems:

  • The use of an inflatable shoring system for excavations, which has been adopted for use in shallow excavations, is now used on some sites.

This offers a lightweight, safer, more sustainable solution.
