Aimed particularly at the water industry, which is about to enter a new investment period, linear shoring is offered as an alternative to sheet piling, hydraulics and trench boxes. It is designed to provide a safe working environment for installing large diameter utility pipes and tanks.
Beaver 84 says that the efficiency of the system, particularly in deep trenches, is enhanced by the forces released during extraction, which are much lower than for most other shoring systems.
The equipment will be formally launched at an open day at Beaver 84’s Widnes branch on 17th and 18th September.
Business development manager Barrie Rockliff said: “This is the first open say we’ve had at Widnes and it will be a great opportunity for contractors, temporary works engineers and designers to find out what Beaver 84 can do for them. There will be a number of other new products on show, including a linear box and piling frames.”
