Working in trenches can be hazardous, and trench shields are one option to provide protection. Trench shields can be aluminum or steel with spreaders to support the sidewalls of the shields. Trench protection products have varying thicknesses and heights to correspond to the requirements of different construction projects. You can alter the width of the spreaders to match that of the trench.
