With the significant upgrade required on existing infrastructure in the US and the new housing growth the market for trench shoring products continues to look very promising. The vast percentage of trench shoring material is temporary, and this allows contractors rental and purchase options.
ESC’s array of trench shoring and safety products has been enhanced by the inclusion of the ABX Series- an Aluminum Trench Shield (Trench Box) developed by ESC’s engineering arm. The production of Aluminum Trench Shields will be carried out in Mexico to supplement the capacity of the UAE and allow more direct sales into the West Coast of the US and into Latin America.
Previously, all production was centered around our UAE facilities and the introduction of US (Steel Trench Shields) and Mexico based facilities will help complement our range of Steel Trench Shields and Sheets in providing optimum solutions for all types and sizes of excavation and trenching jobs in North America and globally.
The ABX Series’ light weight makes it ideal for applications using smaller units of machineries such as mini-excavators and rubber-tired backhoes or similar. ABX Trench Shields are manufactured using aircraft-grade aluminum alloy making it light but sturdy- the physical attributes that suits it best for smaller jobs such as routine maintenance works, on-the-spot repairs, and many more.
ESC Aluminum Shields which are available in commercial and custom sizes have the following features and benefits:
