Bring the strongest steel shoring systems to your worksite with Mabey’s steel trench shields.

Our heavy-duty steel shields have been built for a huge range of applications in the toughest ground conditions. They’ve also been expertly designed to give you maximum internal working clearances – giving your workers more space to do their job. Regardless of the size of the project, you can rely on our durable trench shoring solutions.

A steel trench box may sound like a standard asset, but it can add so much value. Choosing the right steel shoring can assist in getting jobs completed quicker and keeping your workers safer.

Knowing this, we’ve sourced some of the strongest steel trench shields available in the industry. In fact, our new steel trench shoring is stronger and lighter than most other competitors – making it more reliable, and easier to put into position.

When we say heavy duty, we mean it. That’s why we’ve reinforced the top and side rails of the steel trench box. By engineering it this way, it has become highly resilient to hard knocks and incredibly strong forces. Our steel trench shields have even been rated to withstand pressures up to 100kPa.


  • Available in panel lengths up to 6.0m
  • Rated to withstand up to 100kPa
  • Up to 2.4m under strut clearance with high-clear configuration
  • Up to 6.0m internal working widths
  • Heavy-duty hard-wearing knife edge on lower panels for quicker installation
  • Reinforced double top and side rails for extra durability
  • Internal stacking pockets remove lateral movement on stacked steel trench shields.
