LITE guard Manhole Box / Access Chamber Unit on site

LITE guard's Manhole Boxes are aluminium trench shields designed for use with manholes, pits and pump stations. The lighter 2 metre box is suitable for use with a 3 tonne excavator, and the larger boxes would need an excavator with lifting capacity of 6 tonne and upwards.

The LITE guard Manhole Box is also available and manufactured under licence in the UK. If you're in the UK and after a light weight trench shoring solution for working with manholes, pits and pump stations check out our Manhole Boxes.
