Efficiency Production, “America’s Trench Box Builder™,” unveils the newest innovation to its industry-leading Build-A-Box™ Modular Aluminum Trench Shielding System: a lightweight, aluminum Octagon Box.
The Octagon Box is comprised of standard Build-A-Box aluminum panels, pinned in exclusive 135-degree angle vertical posts. The result is a safe, lightweight, “manhole shield” that is perfectly designed to shore tightly around odd-angled laterals and other manhole leads.
Features of the Build-A-Box Octagon Box include:
- Comprised of standard 2 ft tall Build-A-Box aluminum panels; from 2 to 5 ft lengths
- Inside diameter space ranging from 61 to 148 inches
- Provides eight different lateral pipe access points by leaving out 2 ft bottom panel
FLEXIBILITY IN CONFIGURATIONS
“Many precast utilities structures, such as manholes and wet-wells are round, not square,” explains Rod Austin, Efficiency Production’s general manager. “As a result, contractors frequently need to excavate more dirt than is necessary. With the Build-A-Box Octagon Box, excavation contractors can literally ‘cut corners’ to safely save time and money.”
Build-A-Box can be assembled in minutes to a wide variety of two, three, or four-sided configurations; and now an eight-sided octagon configuration. This flexibility enables work crews to make on-the-spot design changes to meet job requirements in conditions ranging from light to extreme.
