Why Choose an Aluminum Trench Box?

The aluminum build-a-box offers a lightweight, flexible alternative to steel products. The modular design makes this equipment easy to transport — the heaviest version weighs only 173 pounds, enabling you to haul it with a small truck. Assembly is quick and easy and requires minimal setup space.

These four-sided boxes offer multiple configuration options to customize the box’s shape to fit any trench opening. The trench box also has adjustable arch spreaders to provide extra clearance.

Choose From Multiple Box Sizes

The aluminum build-a-box is available in eight sizes to meet any project requirement. All options are 2 feet high, but you’ll have several choices for the length, shield capacity and depth rating. You can also connect multiple modular sections to fit longer trenches.

Build-a-Box Applications

These high-quality trench boxes are excellent when working in tight spaces with multiple obstacles or when you need to reconfigure the box frequently. Examples of typical uses and applications include:

  • Utility hole installation projects
  • Underground repair work
  • Laterals and taps
  • Limited-access areas requiring a backhoe loader

Advantages of a Build-a-Box Trench Box Rental

Renting a trench box can be a practical and cost-effective solution if you only need it for a temporary or short-term project. You’ll also attain better results by matching equipment with specific applications. Since you return the box after using it, you can skip storing it, too. Improved cash flow is another benefit of safer and more productive operations, making it easier to fulfill your business’s financial obligations.
