Beam and Plate Systems

A popular way to strengthen and stabilize a trench is the beam and plate method. Below is a quick look at how this option works.

Drive and Slide Installation

Large steel beams, commonly called I-beams, are first driven into the ground in the area that needs to be stabilized. These beams are strategically placed to allow workers to access the area that needs to be worked on, while offering dependable protection and fortification. Once these are in place, steel plates are slid over the top to create a platform for additional support and reinforcement.

Why use the Beam and Plate?

The beam and plate method is most commonly used when there is a large project that is going to span a longer period of time. While it may take a little more time and effort to put into place, it will provide incomparable support throughout the duration of the project.
