There are several industries that focus on work underground. Although those who are not familiar with underground digging believe that it is a straightforward process, those who work in these industries know better. One of the most challenging parts of this type of work is where the evacuation site provides quality shoring. The best way to manage the shoring process is to use a slide rail system.
The following information will help you better understand the way this type of system can be used to shore a trench.
Shoring Close To A Structure Or Road
It is essential to that a strong shoring is placed near the walls if a trench is located near a structure or road. This is necessary to not only help maintain the structure’s integrity, but to also protect the dig. The additional pressure of working near a building that weighs several tons may cause your dig site to collapse quickly.
In addition, other types of shoring systems can also harm the structure that the shoring is taking place against. However, a slide rail system does not provide a lot of vibration.
This means that instead of causing possible damage from shaking and causing extremely strong vibrations underground, the rails can simply be placed into the ground and positioned using support plates.
Even small construction crews will not have a problem installing this type of system. There are no complex shoring procedures that accompany rail systems, so you will not have to worry about going over budget or purchasing special equipment for the system.
What happens after the dig is completed? Your crew can simply pull the rails out of the plates and the cleanup will be complete.
Installation is easy and transporting and storing the system is more convenient than the other types of shoring structures. Both the plates and the rails can lay down flat, and can be arranged in any position to make them easier to transport.
Although shoring systems that are more rigid have important uses, rail systems can be used in various types of excavations. They are comparable to modular toys that children play with. The pieces can be combine in diverse ways to work with all types of dig sites, and the added bonus is that they provide the safety your crew needs to work around the trench.
A slide rail system will help to make the dig site as small as it can to help reduce damage to the environment. Your clients will appreciate dig sites that do not use a lot of space, and your crew will still have the support to complete the job correctly.
