Foxbox trench shields are made from Hardox and Strenx advanced high strength Swedish Steels. Up to five times stronger and three times tougher than standard steels. They are clever, too — all products are stackable with themselves and/or extensions.

They are designed and optimised to the benefits Hardox and Strenx making them lighter than aluminium trench shields and less than half the weight of other steel options. 

Being incredibly lightweight lets operators deploy a Foxbox in confined work sites with much smaller machinery. Customers who upgrade to Foxbox go from needing a 25 ton digger to a 12 ton digger for the job.

Innovative use of Hardox 400 Pipe for the strut design allows Foxbox trench shields to offer unparalleled lower strut clearance while still offering impressive high kPA load ratings. Now you can use even smaller, lighter trench shields for your large pipe laying projects.

Documentation for each Foxbox is available at foxbox.tools for the life of the product. Certification, owners manual and safe usage guidelines can be readily accessed by operators working on site. Instructions for this are printed on each shield.
