Lightweight Municipal steel trench shields or “tap box” by Efficiency Production
XLSM Municipal Steel Trench Box with rubber-tire backhoe
Efficiency Production’s lightweight Municipal steel trench shields or “tapping shield” assure a safe work space when municipal utilities need to be installed, repaired, or replaced. They are light enough to be handled with a rubber-tired backhoe, but strong enough to withstand extreme soil pressures common in poor or unstable soil. Municipal trench shields are one of the most important safety equipment for any city’s DPW or water department.
