The Gravity Lock Trench Box - patent pending
THE SAFEST, FASTEST TRENCH BOX IN THE WORLD

MASSIVE SAVINGS BY DESIGN

safety that results in super savings of time and money
GroundWorks Safety Systems Inc. has invented the Safest, Fastest, Lightest and most Economical to use Trench box in the world. Safety is the number one reason that we invented the new Gravity Lock Trench Box System. There is nothing safer both in and out of the trench. Designed to keep workers out of the line of fire and safe from pinch points. The simplicity makes it so the worker is able to keep a safe distance by using a tag line. Less than 15 minutes with 1 machine, 1 operator and 1 worker, is all that is needed for set up and take down. This results in the risk to worker being virtually eliminated while saving thousands of percent in time and money.

A REVOLUTIONARY
NEW TRENCH SHORING SYSTEM
The GroundWorks Gravity Lock Trench Shoring Safety System delivers unmatched productivity & trench safety on the job.





We have taken one of the most difficult and dangerous products to work with in the shoring industry and made it our simplest and safest to use. The GroundWorks High Arch trench box can be assembled in under 20 minutes and disassembled even quicker.

up to
40% lighter

While meeting or exceeding the soil depth ratings of a traditional trench box system.
Reduces the size of the equipment needed to handle the trench box. We have achieved this by using hi-tensile specialty steels. These steels are more than twice as strong and have 4x the wear resistant properties of regular steel.




4-sided universal connection system

Patent Pending

Unlimited Possibilities

The 4 Sided Universal Connector System makes it so boxes can be stacked or made 4 sided in minutes instead of hours or days. Two Gravity Lock trench boxes can be assembled and stacked in under forty minutes and a four sided box can be done in under one hour. A stacked four sided box can be done in under three hours. The panels can be turned 90 degrees and used along with adapters on the universal connector system. The 4 foot panels that go on top of the box do not need struts to keep them apart, instead heavy duty adapters are used to connect these panels.

There are so many time saving innovative uses for this patent pending four sided connection system, it is virtually endless.

MASSIVE SAVINGS IN TIME & MONEY

SAFETY THAT RESULTS IN PROFIT





When comparing between a GroundWorks Gravity Lock Trench Box and a “traditional” trench box for set up and take down time, it is immediately clear that a new revolutionary product has entered the market.

With the Massive savings in time and manpower from using a GroundWorks Gravity Lock Trench Box you can literally pay for the product within the first dozen uses in comparison to using a traditional trench box.

In Western Canada it is common practice when quoting or bidding a job to allow 4 hours with 5 to 7 workers and one to two machines for the setup of a single 10’ X 12’ traditional trench box with a 10 foot spreader. This is an average of 24 man hours and 6 machine hours to assemble or disassemble a traditional trench box

The GroundWorks Gravity Lock Trench box set up time is: 1 machine with operator and 1 worker 15 minutes for almost any size of a GroundWorks Gravity Lock Trench box. This is a .25 machine hour and .25 man hour to assemble or disassemble a GroundWorks system.

This has been used as a default setting for the calculator below.

INCREASE EFFICIENCY WITH A PICKER TRUCK

Assemble the Gravity Lock Trench Box as it is unloaded from the truck instead of traditionally leaving it for a crew and larger equipment to do it later. And if the picker cannot fully assemble, then the panels can still be set on the struts and waiting so that when the larger equipment arrives, all that is required is to lift the system and install the pins.

GroundWorks Safety Systems Inc. has removed the inherent danger and difficulty of set up and take down of a trench box, making it truly a safer more efficient product to use. Yes money and time are saved on every use, but the Gravity Lock Trench Box was invented to be safer and WHAT PRICE DO YOU PUT ON SAFETY?
