Frequently asked questions

What are adjustable steel trench struts?

Adjustable trench struts are telescopic steel supports, designed to hold trench walls stable during construction projects. These supports can be adjusted to different lengths to fit the distance between trench walls. The real use of a trench strut is to ensure worker safety, by maintaining the structural integrity of the wall with a secure fit.

What safety precautions should be taken when using trench struts?

When using trench struts, you should always make sure they are within their load capacity and extension ranges. Regular inspections can ensure that they remain securely in place and that there is no damage to them over time.

How do I adjust the length of a trench strut?

You can adjust the length of a trench strut by rotating the inner tube until you reach the desired extension. Struts will have a pin or locking mechanism to secure this adjustment. You should always make sure that the strut is locked in place to prevent potential collapses and safety issues.

What is the general lifespan of an adjustable steel trench strut?

The general lifespan of an adjustable steel trench will depend on how it is used. Steel is a durable kind of metal, but there are external factors that can change how long it will last. Some of these include storage conditions, maintenance, load capacity and frequency of use.

What is a powder coating?

All of our adjustable trench struts are given a painted green finish. Powder coating is a tougher finish than conventional paint. It helps to safeguard a trench strut against extreme weather or general wear and tear.
