Kennards Hire has increased stocks of a new aluminium shoring system, which is comparatively light and easy to handle.
According to Kennards Hire, Trench Mate, which is just half the weight of some other trench shielding systems, has been welcomed by customers.
The Trench Mate stacks easily, can be transported in a ute and is quick to set up on site.
Trench Mate can be used in trenches of up to three metres deep, which is adequate for many jobs done by Kennards’ customers.
Trench Mate complies with the safety requirements of A.S.4744.1-2000, and is essential protection for plumbers and drainers, electricians, and water, gas and telecommunications installers and maintenance workers.
The system can be set up by two men, but an easy method is to lower it in with a mini excavator.
Having just a few components makes for easy assembly.
Modular panels come in two sizes. The larger panels are 2.4m long, 60cm high and weigh 45kg, while the smaller panels are 91cm long, 60cm high and weigh 18kg.
