Our standard lap trench sheets are supplied in a wide range of lengths, ranging from 1.2m - 6.0m long, although other lengths not shown on our website are available upon request. Trench sheets are used to shore up trenches & ground works whilst excavation works take place in order to provide a safe working environment. The sheets are primarily designed to be handled and installed by excavators using the bucket to drive the sheets vertically into the ground.
The grade of steel used is S275, this higher yielding steel increases the strength-to-weight ratio, and this is then cold rolled from coil into trench sheets here in the UK. Handling holes are provided as standard at one end of the sheet to make moving the trench sheets much easier and safer.
