Our trench sheets are thin steel members that are driven into the ground used to support the ground at the sides of trenches and excavations. Thanks to its durable strength and flexibility, it’s ideal for all forms of temporary and permanent work.

Mabey Hire offers a range of trench sheets to assist you with delivering quick, safe and efficient projects. Our trench sheets are made for easy installation and extraction, so you don’t need to waste valuable time in the setup.

Made from hardwearing steel, trench sheets provide exceptional strength which allows for excellent durability to withstand heavy pressures and onsite damage. They can be used for a wide range of applications, from shallow excavations to deep-driving excavations. They’re also the sustainable choice, as they can be reused over and over.
