A Slide Rail system is designed to keep workers safe while also saving contractors time and money.
There are many types of shoring systems available. It can seem perplexing to try and figure out which system is right for your particular project.
What is a Slide Rail Shoring System?
A Slide Rail shoring system is meant to replace the conventional application of steel or wood sheeting. It is a vertical sheeting and trench support system. By using this type of system, the excavation can be shored from ground level to sub-grade level without any soil movement.
This system is designed with the contractor in mind as the components of our Slide Rail system allow for the use of lighter, more general machines during installation and removal than would otherwise be required for tight sheeting or trench shields.
The Slide Rail system is a very effective system in areas that have distressed ground conditions or where where the existing infrastructure would make it difficult to support a trench. In addition, it is designed to keep workers safe while also saving contractors time and money.
