3 Cornerstone Products of Aluminum Trench Box

As Aluminum Trench Box, you may not be surprised to discover that our most popular product is, well, our aluminum trench boxes. That being said, new visitors to our site are surprised to find that we actually have three trench box designs that our customers rely on. As long as a 5-foot trench is involved, trench boxes are necessary for both 2-man operations and city-wide efforts. Naturally, then, a variety of trench box sizes, weights, and capabilities are necessary for all workers to stay safe when in the trenches.

In this month’s blog post, we’ll be discussing the three different trench boxes we offer, and who can benefit the most from using them.

1. Aluminum Panel Shields

Aluminum panel shields are the cornerstone product of Aluminum Trench Box. These trench boxes are designed with an even balance of versatility, usability, and reliability in mind; in essence, it’s the perfect all-around trench shoring system. To this end, we’ve designed our aluminum panel shield with the following features:

  • Flat Paneling
  • Welded Aluminum
  • 3- and 4-sided configurations (when used with buildable panel boxes)
  • Easy Handling with Backhoes and Excavators

These traits make our aluminum panel shield the preferred trench box for workers all throughout the United States.

2. Badger Boxes

The Aluminum Trench Box team’s decades-long history in the trench safety industry has given us a superior insight into the needs of workers while in the trenches—which is why we made the Badger Box.

In contrast to our standard aluminum panel shields, our badger boxes are designed to emphasize utility and easy movement.

  • Lightweight, durable design
  • Easily transportable in any size pickup truck
  • Favorite of utility industry due to maneuverability and compact construction

The Badger Box is easily the premier trench shoring box for any small-team operation and for teams that need to fit into hard-to-reach spaces.

3. Buildable Panel Boxes

Our team believes that you should have whatever resources you need to stay safe while working in a trench; so, we made our buildable panel boxes.

Easily our most customizable design, our buildable panel boxes are some of the most versatile in the trench shoring industry. We know that “customizable” may also seem like a synonym for “complicated,” which is why we designed it with pins that allow for easy assembly, alteration, and disassembly while on-site. Moreover, the buildable panel box has the following benefits:

  • 2-, 3-, and 4-sided configurations
  • Hand adjustable
  • Available with fixed spreaders of up to 12 feet
  • Panels that range from 3-16 feet in length
  • Corner posts that range from 2 feet to 8 feet

Our buildable panel boxes are most widely used on work sites with long-term operations, since its customizable design makes it easily the best choice for sites that have a variety of needs over an extended period of time.

Safety is our priority at Aluminum Trench Box. That’s why we’ve designed these three shoring systems that are tailored to the varying needs of any worker that finds themselves doing trench work.
