ESC Aluminum Trench Shield

Updated: Apr 8

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 Trench Shoring, Inc., a NAXSA and NUCA member and a recognized provider in the global stage has now launched its latest product line of aluminum trench shields and sheet piles.

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.

ESC will now also eye distribution of the aluminum trench shields and equipment in newer markets like the UK, South East Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.

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.
