XLAP Aluminium Shoring Boxes

Ground Support Systems range of light weight XLAP Aluminium trench shoring boxes are designed for use with smaller excavators, Backhoes and where access is limited to small machinery (eg: Back yards etc). XLAP shoring boxes also come with removable 600mm x 600mm cut out sections in the panels which are ideal for junctions when laying pipes 90 degrees to existing pipelines or manholes.

Standard features

  • Light weight
  • Adjustable spreaders
  • Removable 600mm x 600mm cut out sections in panels
  • Professional Engineer design and certification

Conforms to Australian Standard AS 4744.1-2000
