GME 6M Series Steel Trench Boxes

GME developed the 6" Series trench box for the cost conscious contractor who is hunting for that special mix between better-than-average depth capacity and moderate costs. Many contractors frequently work in depths that the smaller trench shields cannot handle. GME recognized this problem and designed the 6" wall shield to meet this special need. If you want good depth capacity, moderate weight, and reduced excavation costs at a reasonable price - then investigate the 6" Series trench shields.

Features:

  • Full length hardwood inserts in top horizontal tube and front vertical tube
  • Only fully gusseted steel knife edge
  • High tensile steel throughout
  • Trapped thru wall collar assemblies
  • Honey-comb inner structure
  • Clear-view front and rear spreaders
  • 4-Point lifting system
  • Non-rigid design
  • All certified by a Professional Engineer to meet OSHA Standards
  • Utilizes 8" Sch. 80 spreader pipe
  • Customizable
  • Stackable

Options:

4 Sided Pit Kit

For square or rectangular pit shields. Ideal for well drilling/shafts, tank, vault, or junction box installations.

High Arch

Height adapters for extra-large structures or pipes, these can be used to replace the spreader pipes for extra rear clearance. They feature a collar arrangement to fit the sidewalls, and is easily assembled.

End Panel

End panels help maintain the non-rigid movement of the box, while providing extra protection from mud, soil, etc.
