The Drive Over Trench Support (DOTS) system, is the world’s first drive over trench shoring system.
“Manufactured and designed in general accordance with BS EN 13331 : 2002, Parts 1 and 2 trench lining systems and BS 5975 (2008) code of practice for temporary works procedures and the permissible stress design of falsework”.
Providing an immediate support solution to an excavated trench, the DOTS guarantees safe crossing for machinery and removes the risk of trench collapse, removing the need to place steel plates at site crossings. The model is available in a range of trench box sizes and can be used in multiples to continuously support a length of trench.
The unique design allows installation and removal to be completed in minutes. As suction pressures are significantly reduced during the extraction of the unit, quick redeployment cycle times can be achieved in a safe and timely manner. Compared to traditional shoring systems, our ready to deploy systems will save significant amounts of time and money.
